Ex Rams QB Jared Goff Has Advice For Raiders Derek Carr

Former Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff knows a thing or two about starting over, and he has advice for exiting Raiders signal caller, Derek Carr.

The Las Vegas Raiders are moving on from starting quarterback Derek Carr this offseason, granting the multi-time Pro Bowler permission to seek out a preferred landing spot to rebuild his career. 

And if anyone knows a thing or two about rebuilding a career, it is former Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff, who was traded from LA to the Detroit Lions ahead of the 2021 season, in exchange for Matthew Stafford. 

Luckily for Carr, who was named the 2023 Pro Bowl despite being intensely criticized this season, Goff is also in Las Vegas taking part in the festivities and has some advice for the soon-to-depart quarterback.

“There’s definitely life on the other side,” Goff said, in an interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “Often times a really great life.”

Really great, indeed for Goff, who wrapped up the 2022 season by finishing sixth in the NFL in passing, and completing 382 of 587 attempts for 4,438 yards and 29 touchdowns, with just seven interceptions. 

Those numbers put Goff just behind the likes of Patrick Mahomes, Justin Herbert, Tom Brady, Kirk Cousins and Joe Burrow, and ahead of other standouts such as Josh Allen, MVP candidate Jalen Hurts, Aaron Rodgers, and more. 

Not only that, but Goff led the Lions to a 9-8 record, narrowly missing out on the NFC playoffs along the way.

And now, Goff hopes that his advice will help Carr get on track for a similar bounce-back story next season.

“We had a really good talk about it earlier this week,” Goff said. “I think his head is in a great place about it, whatever ends up happening with him.”
