The Detroit Lions and Jared Goff have agreed to a four-year, $212 million contract extension with $170 million guaranteed, ESPN and NFL Network reported Monday.

Goff, 29, was entering the final year of a contract he signed with the Rams before the 2021 trade that sent Goff to Detroit and Matthew Stafford to Los Angeles.

Goff's reported $53 million annual average value would rank second in the NFL behind Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, who has a $55 million AAV. Burrow signed a five-year, $275 million deal last September.

After Goff took the Lions to their first playoff appearance since 2016 and their first division title since 1993, general manager Brad Holmes said the quarterback had "earned an extension" and negotiations were ongoing.

Detroit worked out new deals for offensive tackle Penei Sewell and wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown last month.

Goff completed 67.3 percent of his passes for 4,575 yards and 30 touchdowns against 12 interceptions last season while leading Detroit to its first division title since 1993 and its first two playoff wins since the 1991 season.
