Lions Get: No. 2 pick in 2024 NFL Draft

Commanders Get: Jared Goff (and more)

A Farewell to Jared Goff

Lions GM Brad Holmes released a statement shortly after the trade announcement, expressing gratitude for Jared Goff‘s contributions to the team over the past three years but emphasizing the organization’s excitement about his replacement.

“Jared has been a true professional and a key part of our team,” Holmes stated. “However, we believe that J.J. McCarthy is the quarterback who will lead the Detroit Lions to the Super Bowl.”

Detroit Lions Set Sights on McCarthy

The Lions’ bold strategy to trade Jared Goff (and more) for the No. 2 overall pick signals a clear intent to reshape their future, with eyes firmly set on former Michigan quarterback J.J. McCarthy. Detroit’s front office is banking on McCarthy’s dynamic playmaking ability and leadership qualities to elevate the team to new heights. As long as the Chicago Bears select Caleb Williams with the No. 1 pick, McCarthy is heading to the Motor City.

TL;DR (too long didn’t read)

  1. The Detroit Lions trade Jared Goff (and more) to the Washington Commanders for the No. 2 pick.
  2. The Lions aim to draft former Michigan QB J.J. McCarthy.
  3. Lions GM Brad Holmes expresses confidence in McCarthy as the future leader.

What is the “And More”?

In addition to sending Jared Goff to Washington for the No. 2 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, the Lions are also sending an autographed game-worn Barry Sanders jersey to the Commanders. The jersey the Lions are sending is the one Sanders wore when he surpassed 2,000 rushing yards during the 1997 season.

The Bottom Line

The trade has raised eyebrows due to the inclusion of the Barry Sanders jersey, a priceless piece of the Lions’ history. This unusual addition to the trade package underscores the Lions’ determination to secure the No. 2 pick and their confidence in McCarthy’s ability to be a franchise quarterback.

As the NFL community continues to process this blockbuster trade, all eyes will be on the upcoming draft and the Lions’ next moves. Will J.J. McCarthy be the cornerstone of a new era in Detroit? Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure: the Lions are not afraid to make bold decisions in pursuit of championship glory.

  1. Why does it matter if Chicago drafts Caleb Williams (who will be a bust in the NFL)? The best quarterback in the draft is Bo Nix. If neither of them draft Nix, they are both making a HUGE mistake.
