It was already a forgone conclusion, but the Los Angeles Rams have officially locked up their franchise quarterback.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Jared Goff has agreed to a four-year contract extension with the organization that drafted him first overall back in 2016. The two-time Pro-Bowler's rookie deal was set to expire in 2020.

If you're wondering how much the California product will rake in, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport adamantly believes that it will come close to or even break the largest guaranteed salary in league history.

If you were feeling reluctant toward the Rams' confidence in coining Goff their gunslinger of the future, well, those doubts can be swiftly neutralized. The 24-year-old is coming off his best campaign in the league, throwing for 4,688 yards and 32 touchdowns while completing a shade under 65% of his passes.

More importantly, of course, Goff led Los Angeles to the Super Bowl, which they ultimately lost to the Patriots.

Regardless of that gut-wrenching defeat, the future is undoubtedly bright for the Rams. The thought of Goff and head coach Sean McVay being paired together for years to come should terrify opposing defenses around the league.
