Jared Goff is a quarterback in the NFL who currently plays as QB1 for the Detroit Lions franchise. His full name Jared Thomas Goff by birth and he was born on October 14, 1994 in the city of Novato California approximately 30 miles north of San Francisco. Goff is a member of the 2016 NFL Draft in which he was the number one overall pick selected by the Los Angeles Rams.

Playing with the Rams for a period of five years from 2016 till 2020, Goff’s career highlight came in the 2018 season when he led the team to an appearance in Super Bowl LIII only to lose to the iconic Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

Goff’s rookie season was a very rocky one where he went 0-7 in the seven times he was handed the starting role. Prior to that he served as the backup to Case Keenum for the initial nine weeks. The next two seasons were the best of his Rams career making the playoffs and finishing as the top seeds in the NFC West. However, inconsistent performances in the following two seasons followed by postseason exits eventually resulted in Goff being traded to the Lions in 2021.

Jared Goff Early Life

As a native of Novato and the closest NFL team being the San Francisco 49ers, Goff was a die-hard fan of the team and grew up idolizing the former great Joe Montana. In fact, his admiration of Montana is evident from the fact that Goff wears the number 16 jersey as a tribute to the Hall of Fame quarterback.

Goff was already playing quarterback in high school. He attended Marin Catholic High School nearby his hometown where he had a successful three-year stint. He threw for over 7,000 yards and had 93 touchdowns while only giving away 18 interceptions.

By the time his high school was over, Goff had multiple options to consider from, out of which he decided to attend the University of California, Berkeley to continue his football career. With the numbers he put up during his three years at Berkeley, Goff was a standout candidate and the number one pick on many analysts and scouts’ minds. He set 26 school records including the 12,220 passing yards, 96 touchdown passes, and 329.7 passing yards per game just to name a few.

Unfortunately for Goff though, no matter how amazing his own numbers were, the team's overall success was quite disappointing as they had only one winning season. Upon completing his junior year of college, the former Rams quarterback decided to enter the 2016 NFL Draft.

Sports has an important place in the Goff family as his father Jerry was a former professional baseball player who played as a catcher in the MLB for around six years. Jerry was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in 1986 but struggled to make his way into the starting lineup and spent most of his time with the team’s minor league.

By 1990, he got the chance to play for the Montreal Expos with whom he spent a couple of years before going on to play for the Pittsburgh Pirates and Houston Astros for two years respectively. All in all, Goff Sr. did not have a particularly good career in baseball, but that is something Jared has already surpassed with his first seven years in the NFL. And to this, his father has nothing but pride as he once stated that his son is a lot better than he could have ever imagined.

Jared Goff Mother

As for his mother Nancy, she and her son Jared share a very close bond. As per sources, Nancy is a mortgage advisor working for Flagstar Bank but this could not be confirmed. For her though, having a kind and caring son like Jared is still more important than anything he could ever achieve on the football field.

While talking about their son’s calm personality, the parents said that it came from being the son of a professional athlete as well as the personality of Nancy. According to his mother, she has the ability to remain unfazed in most situations and that may have passed on to her son even when the going gets quite tough.

However, she is happy to have worked things out and is managing her professional and personal life quite well. Although it is not clear what she is doing at the moment, she has branched out into a different career and is happy to have a change in her life.

Goff’s life towards stardom started in the grandest city of the West Coast with the Los Angeles Rams. Being the number one overall pick of the franchise meant that a lot was expected of him and it also meant that he was selected by a struggling outfit.

His career got off to a horrible start in his rookie year but Goff and the organization quickly turned things around in years two and three. While they were expected to go far after they reached the Super Bowl in the 2018 season, that is not what happened and the next couple of years were nothing to talk about.

Detroit Lions (2021- present)

After Goff finished five years in Los Angeles, he was surprisingly traded to the Detroit Lions prior to the 2021 NFL season. In a move that meant more trouble for Goff, he again got off to a troubled start and it took nearly one and a half seasons for the Lions to get going. However, the second half of the 2022 season saw a lot of improvement and Goff has now got a base in place to work with.

He then signed his first big contract in 2019 worth $134 million over another 4 years. Furthermore, Goff has also earned a sizable income from his brand endorsements as well.

Jared Goff Brand Endorsements

Most NFL players, especially those in top positions such as the quarterback and the receivers all earn some amount of money on the side as part of brand endorsements. Jared Goff is no exception to this. As per various sources on the net, Goff has partnered with big name brands such as Nike, BMW, Bose, Pizza Hut, Red Bull, Banana Republic and many more.

About his brand endorsement with Banana Republic, Goff stated that he was ‘honored and excited’, while the company’s Chief Marketing Officer Mary Alderete was thrilled to get him on board citing that the Lions star had become a fan of their men’s clothing and thus it just made sense to get him onboard as their brand ambassador.

Jared Goff Investments

Goff has started his very own apparel line called JG16 which is his way of giving back to the community. All the income generated from the sales of his line goes directly to an organization known as the Inglewood Youth Foundation.

Jared Goff Diet

Following a particular diet plan is very important for any individual, but if the individual in question is a professional athlete, then a lot more emphasis is placed on his diet. As for Goff, he was at the receiving end of some criticism when he first entered the league due to his leaner-than-average physique. As a matter of fact, Goff was around 205 pounds which was approximately 10-5 pounds less than the average at his position.

But the California native had to come up with a different diet plan to bulk up his physique since he was diagnosed with an enzyme deficiency due to which his body is unable to break down proteins. As per his fitness coach, Ryan Flaherty, Goff had to gain more strength by eating chicken, turkey, and fish as opposed to red meat. Since his rookie year, Goff has managed to put on nearly 12 pounds and his strength has also shot up automatically.

Jared Goff House

As recently as July of 2023, Jared Goff purchased a new mansion for himself in Manhattan Beach, California. The new purchase is stated to have set him back by reportedly $10.5 million. First built back in 1980, the house has been renovated and expanded on a few occasions since then.

The new house is on a corner property and sits on nearly a quarter of an acre. It has 5,700 square feet of space and boasts five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and is three stories tall. The main floor houses a living room with a fireplace, extra-tall ceilings, and a big, curved staircase. This floor also has a nice and cozy family room accompanied by a wet bar, plus a kitchen and an adjoining dining room.

The second floor is where you can find the master bedroom which has a stoned fireplace, a sitting area, and balconies. The remaining four bedrooms as well as a library and an office can also be found down the hall.

As for the amenities, the house is packed with a screening room that can also be used as a game room, a pool, a spa, and a fire-pit lounge. A bar and a barbecue area along with a three-car garage make up the rest.

Prior to his latest purchase, Goff had another house in the Hidden Hills locality which he bought in 2018 for approximately $4.05 million. About a year ago he sold that property for around $6.396 million making a cool profit on it.
