Goff’s Reveals New Jersey Number With Lions
Since the news of the deal was first revealed, a question on the mind of a lot of Lions fans has been what number Goff would wear. The quarterback received his first Lions jersey, and on the back lo and behold was a familiar number of 16 for Goff.
Here’s a look:
Goff now has the chance to make the 16 jersey his own in Detroit with some solid play, and it’s a number that hasn’t seen a lot through the years. Titus Young was the last bigger name player to wear it, but his tenure ended unceremoniously with the team. Knowing this, the Lions could be in great shape with Goff, and he has a chance to make the number his own with some great play.
Jared Goff Has Major Opportunity With Lions
Goff will enter a situation in Detroit where the majority of the pressure is indeed off of him in terms of his situation. The expectations in Los Angeles were high, but now that he is being written off heading to Detroit, Goff can simply settle in and play football. Most predicted the Lions to select a quarterback in the draft or be involved in the quarterback market, but Goff can put an end to that with a quality season on the field. It’s a big chance for both him and the Lions heading into 2020.
Very quietly, the Lions may have solved a major issue on their team with a blockbuster trade. Once Goff comes into the mix, he will be given plenty of support to reinvent himself.
It’s very clear he is excited and ready to get going on the next chapter.
