Jared Goff appears to be enjoying his off-season on the West Coast.
Over the weekend, the 27-year-old Lions quarterback took to the beach with his girlfriend Christen Harper for what appeared to be a sandy picnic that included pizza, wine and a charcuterie board, among other treats.
In photos posted to the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model’s Instagram account on Monday, Goff – who recently completed his freshman year in Detroit – can be seen kissing Harper while sitting in the sand, with the former Number 1 overall also spends time with his four-legged friend.
Goff spent the first five years of his NFL career with the Rams before being traded to the Lions in January 2021, with Los Angeles acquiring Detroit’s veteran quarterback Matthew Stafford in exchange.
Stafford and Goff continued to have polar opposite seasons, with the Lions going 3-13-1 and earning their first win in December, while the Rams won the Super Bowl after defeating the Bengals in February.
Despite a challenging start in Detroit, Lions head coach Dan Campbell has praised Goff for ending the year strong.
“Look, I like Goff,” Campbell said last week, according to the Lions’ official website. “I like where he is. I thought he finished strongly last year. I’m glad we have him this year.”
In the same breath, Campbell added that he also likes “the prospects in this draft,” pointing to the possibility of expanding the position if they fit.
“Now the right guy is on the right pick (quarterback), then we’ll do it. But we like Goff. I like where he is. He finished strong. Keep adding plays and whenever that is (to add a quarterback) is it next year? is it this year Is it two years from now? And the right guy is sitting there, then you find a way to get that guy when it’s the right guy,” said the sophomore coach.
Pittsburgh’s Kenny Pickett, Liberty’s Malik Willis and North Carolina’s Sam Howell are among the notable callers in this year’s draft class. The Lions have the No. 2 pick and it seems unlikely they would field a quarterback with that pick.
Goff finished the 2021 season with a throw for 3,245 yards with 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 14 games.
