Jared Goff on Reported Trade to Lions: 'I'm Just Excited to Be Somewhere That I Know Wants Me'

Former No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff was reportedly traded to the Detroit Lions on Saturday night in a deal that sent the former Rams quarterback along with a third-round pick in 2021 and first-round picks in 2022 and 2023 to the Detroit Lions.

Goff told NFL Network's Michael Silver on Sunday that, "I'm just excited to be somewhere that I know wants me and appreciates me."

ESPN's Jeff Darlington said that Goff told him on Saturday night that he had already spoken to new Lions head coach Dan Campbell and several other members of the Lions' coaching staff.
