The Minnesota Vikings have had a busy offseason for quarterback Jared Goff, as the team signed free agent Christian Hackenberg and drafted offensive lineman La’el Collins in the first two rounds of the NFL Draft.
Goff was reportedly asked by head coach Mike Zimmer if he would be willing to sit out a game to get a new starting quarterback.
Zimmer was also asked if he thought he could win with Goff as his starter, and said he did not know if he could.
The team had been talking with Goff about a deal, but the former USC quarterback ultimately decided to go the other way.
The Vikings were reportedly looking to extend the contract of their quarterback.
Gould’s contract with the Los Angeles Rams expires after this season.
The team will make a decision on whether to keep him or let him walk before the start of the season on March 3.
