Jared Goff admits getting traded to Lions from Rams is the ‘greatest thing’ that ever happened to him

One of the best trades of all time remains to be Jared Goff‘s trade to the Detroit Lions, three years ago. It was a win for all four parties involved in the trade– Lions, Goff, Los Angeles Rams, and Matthew Stafford, whom the Lions traded in exchange for Goff. 

Despite making a Super Bowl appearance with quarterback Goff, the Rams and head coach Sean McVay were inclined towards trading him as they wanted to upgrade their quarterback. And they got the best deal with the Lions when Stafford produced an instant upgrade to the team’s center. As the years pass by, the trade deal continues to be more right. 

During an interview on the Trading Cards podcast, the 2016 first-round pick opened up about his trade to the Lions, saying it was truly the best thing that ever happened to him, professionally. 

In hindsight, [it] was the greatest thing that ever happened to me, for my career and my development as a human. I’m fortunate enough to be around a lot of good coaches and players in Detroit that support me and help me reach my potential.
