.It’s something we’re going to need to start re-visiting more frequently,

Back in May Limited Brandon Allen Jersey , I approached the first real look at the looming decision the Los Angeles Rams have in terms of extending QB Jared Goff in light of the deal the Atlanta Falcons gave to QB Matt Ryan but I thought it worth updating here. Why? Now after eight games, we’re not only through half of the 2018 season but also halfway through Goff’s rookie contract assuming the Rams apply a fifth-year option on his deal to keep him under contract for the 2020 season.Much has happened in the first eight games to make us reevaluate the environment around a new deal, but we still haven’t gotten to the most important performances that will really have the most impact on a new deal: late-season and postseason performances.That said, here are the three major aspects of a new deal and how things have progressed since May.Goff’s individual performanceMore than anything, this will drive the motivation for a new deal from both sides. If Goff has more performances like he did against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4 and continues to elevate his play overall as he has this year, it will be nearly impossible for the Rams to find a way out of paying him a record-breaking deal.And really, that’s the framing we need to start considering.The team around GoffThis one largely revolves around the offensive line as the Rams have locked up the core components of their offense now with RB Todd Gurley, WR Brandin Cooks, WR Robert Woods and WR Cooper Kupp all locked up for at least the next two seasons.The Rams extended RT Rob Havenstein through 2022 back in August, but he’s the only long-term certainty on the line. LG Rodger Saffold is an unrestricted free agent after this year. LT Andrew Whitworth, C John Sullivan and RG Austin Blythe are up after next year. Between Whit, Saffold and Sullivan, I’m not sure how much the Rams are willing to commit to any long-term given their age. And while rookie draft picks Joseph Noteboom and Brian Allen offer some potential to plug in, they remain projects that have yet to actually verify their competency.So the real thing to consider here is if the Rams are prepared to offer a major contract to Goff in 2021, how does the line that will protect that investment look starting in that season and how much will the sheer cost of Goff’s deal impact the ability to re-sign those core offensive weapons?The marketI’m combining the two aspects here to consider both the general NFL market and the QB market that will develop for 2021.There are two quarterbacks who have crossed the $30m average per year (APY): Ryan and Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers who signed a four-year extension in August. Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins’ three-year deal he signed this year is for $28m APY Ramik Wilson Jersey , but all three years are fully guaranteed. And San Francisco 49ers QB Money Contractalot got a five-year deal at $27.5 per, but had just 35.4% of it guaranteed, the lowest of the major deals (Rodgers at 58.7%, Ryan at 63% and Cousins at 100%). So the four of them have collectively reset the bar for the QB market which isn’t likely to undergo a major change next offseason.Instead, prepare thyself for the great QB Remaking of 2020. The following quarterbacks are on deals that expire after next season: New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers, Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota and Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston. So yeah...Maybe more relevant to the immediacy of thinking about Goff’s fortunes? The Rams’ need to find more competency from the backup to Goff, as Sean Mannion is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent.Beyond that though are the considerations that Goff will be signing a deal for a market that will take shape under the next collective bargaining agreement. Will it continue to suppress the costs of rookie deals? Much has been made of the idea that the Rams have developed their window of success on the back of the talents they had on rookie deals. Those deals have all but been replaced at the key value positions save for Goff at quarterback and Whitworth’s successor at left tackle (unless it’s Noteboom). If the new CBA either maintains that strategic discrepancy or expands on it, the pressure to draft talented quarterbacks early will only expand as the salary cap does so as well. So consider the early trajectory of someone like Clemson Tigers QB Trevor Lawrence in light of what we’re imagining two and a half years out.But also, keep in mind the cost alternatives for Goff. Not trying to reinvigorate the old Barnwell trade hypothetical, but the obvious backing Goff enjoys now comes at about 25% of his market value. Once that hits 100%, the alternatives will be, well Dante Fowler Jr Jersey Salute to Service , without restriction. If Goff is going to get a top tier contract, the question is one of Goff v. any other quarterback. It’s not necessarily one of abandoning our favorite system QB. It’s more a question of who will be able to win the biggest games in this window when you are paying him along the lines of the Rodgers and Brees of the NFL.Plenty of football to come. Plenty of moments in big games that will help decide how easy or difficult this decision will be.But halfway through Goff’s rookie deal, it looks like the scope of the decision will affect not just the Rams’ future but the entire market of the NFL and depending on how Goff plays the next two and half seasons, it may just affect the postseason outcomes of the Rams let alone any other teams they face as well. Many an NFL opponent has had a game plan waylaid by the speed, strength and instinct of Aaron Donald over his not-yet-five-full seasons in the league.The 6-foot-1, 280-pound kingpin of the Los Angeles Rams' defense was a unanimous pick for the best defensive tackle in the NFL by a panel of 10 football writers for The Associated Press in this week's edition of the position rankings."He's been as disruptive as anyone on the interior, ever, since entering the league," said the AP's Josh Dubow, who is based in the Bay Area.Just ask the Minnesota Vikings.The Rams had a 10-point lead on Minnesota last month, but the Vikings were on the move as the fourth quarter began and Kirk Cousins dropped back.Donald leaped off the line to engage with his blocker, before breaking free to the inside of the guard with a textbook swim move. After shoving the center aside, Donald darted forward and swallowed up the quarterback with a bear hug for a 10-yard loss and a harbinger for a punt.The Vikings still had a chance later in the game, trailing by just a touchdown, when Cousins settled in the pocket looking to pass. Donald veered right this time to squeeze between the guard and the tackle, foiling a desperate attempt by the center to slow him down as he closed in on another sack. After tossing Cousins to the turf Authentic Cory Littleton Jersey , Donald simply pointed to his right biceps for his latest celebration."Early in the game I thought the protection was good," Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said after the 38-31 loss to the Rams last month, "and then Donald took it over a little bit at the end."Donald also topped the AP rankings for defensive tackles last year.After staying away from offseason workouts for a second straight year to protest his lack of a new contract, the Rams finally relented at the end of the preseason with a six-year extension for Donald worth $135 million.For the Rams (5-0), one of the NFL's two remaining unbeaten teams, the defensive tackle tandem of Donald and newcomer Ndamukong Suh has the potential to change a game as much as their high-octane offense."It's almost unfair the way the Rams have stocked up on their defensive line," said the AP's Teresa Walker, who's based in Nashville.Suh finished fifth in the voting released Friday, following Geno Atkins of the Cincinnati Bengals, Fletcher Cox of the Philadelphia Eagles and Gerald McCoy of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That's quite the quintet of experience, power and quickness at a position that's as stacked with elite players as any around the league these days. Donald, Atkins, Cox, McCoy and Suh have played a combined 39 seasons and been picked for the Pro Bowl 24 times, with a cumulative total of 250陆 career sacks playing a role that's predicated on stopping the run first.Suh and McCoy were the second and third overall picks in the 2010 draft. Atkins, who went in the fourth round that year Limited Austin Blythe Jersey , is in the top two with Donald in sacks, quarterback pressures and quarterback hits over the last five seasons. This year, Atkins is tied for the league lead with six sacks."Doesn't seek attention, but his consistent excellence demands it," said the AP's Simmi Buttar, who's based in New York.The only new addition to the top 10 from last year's rankings was Jurrell Casey of the Tennessee Titans, who finished sixth.Kawann Short of the Carolina Panthers was seventh, DeForest Buckner of the San Francisco 49ers was eighth, Linval Joseph of the Minnesota Vikings was ninth and Damon Harrison of the New York Giants was 10th. Yes, that was Joseph rumbling down the field last week with a fumble he caught midair and returned 64 yards for a touchdown ."Might be the fastest 330-pound guy in sports," said the AP's Rob Maaddi, who's based in Philadelphia.Now that's a true defensive tackle.
