Holmes enthusiastically responded to Snead’s question, saying, “Hell, yeah. Absolutely,” when asked if he wanted Goff in the trade.

No, I was like, ‘I want Jared in this trade.’ The way that the narrative was of how the trade went, it kind of went, ‘Oh, Jared can’t play.’ I’m like, ‘Dude, this guy was just playing in the Divisional (round) playing with a broken hand, completing 70% of his passes. Like, why can’t he play anymore?’”
