Well, the way Lions GM Brad Holmes and head coach Dan Campbell have spoken during the offseason, it seems pretty clear that they will give Goff the chance to make that happen.
If Goff takes a big step forward in 2022, he could force the Lions to hold on to him as their solution at quarterback.

During a recent presser, Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson talked about his strong relationship with Goff.
“I’ve got a really strong relationship with Jared right now, and one of my top priorities personally is to help him have the best season of his career,” Johnson said. “One thing that we’ve done is included him a lot and what we’re trying to do schematically, and so we spent some time this offseason watching more of the stuff of what he did a few years ago in LA, and how can we incorporate some of that while also challenging him to take the next step in some areas of improvement for him as a player as well.”
“At the end of the day, we want to do what our quarterback does well,” Johnson continued. “And so I think we look back at his time in LA. He was really successful with certain schemes and certain concepts. And we’re just going to look to incorporate some of those a little bit more I know, play-action is something he’s really good at.”
