Many sources are reporting that the Detroit Lions are dealing QB Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for two future first-round picks, a third-round pick plus QB Jared Goff.
So, they get: Matthew Stafford
They give up: Two #1s and a #3.
The Rams paid a heavy price for Jared Goff in dollars and in draft capital.
In 2019 Goff signed a four-year, $134 million contract with $110 million of that guaranteed. In 2016 the Rams traded a bundle to get Goff. We've detailed it before but here it is again—
In April of 2016, the Rams sent a 2016 first-round pick plus two second-round picks and a third-round pick plus another first-round pick (2017) and a 2017 third-round pick to the Titans in exchange for the #1 overall pick, a fourth-round pick, and a sixth-round pick. With that #1 overall the Rams took Jared Goff.
So they got: The #1 overall (Jared Goff), a #4, and a #6
They gave up: Two #1s, two #2s, and two #3s.
1 #1 Jared Goff, QB, Cal
2 #43 (Choice to Tennessee) Pick from Philadelphia for Sam Bradford
2 #45 (Choice to Tennessee)
3 #76 (Choice to Tennessee)
4 #110 Tyler Higbee, TE, Western Kentucky

6 #177 Temarrick Hemingway, TE, South Carolina St. (from Tennessee)
6 #190 Josh Forrest, MLB, Kentucky
6 #206 Mike Thomas, WR, Southern Miss (from Chicago)
7 #235 (Choice to Tennessee for Case Keenum)
