Jared Goff is once again the Detroit Lions’ starting quarterback going into the upcoming season.
Lions general manager Brad Holmes visited the “Rich Eisen Show” this week and talked about the future of Goff with the team and the confidence he has in him.
“We felt very confident going into this year with Jared being the guy, to lead us at quarterback. But, at the same time, we were open. We had very transparent conversations about you know, look, if the right guy’s there (in the draft) and it’s the right fit, we’ll look into that,” Holmes said (via Sports Illustrated). He added, “And, I will say, what we didn’t want to do is we didn’t want to force anything, in terms of well, we’ve got to grab a quarterback. And, if it’s not the right fit and player, you know, just still grab a quarterback. We just didn’t have that feeling, as we went through that process.”
There weren’t really any top quarterbacks against during the draft this season, anyway, so it’s not a big surprise that the Lions are sticking with Goff. Here’s hoping he delivers during the upcoming season!
