Rams’ Jared Goff ‘ringleader’ of quarantine workouts for Los Angeles
Though the entire sports world has begun to ever-so-slowly remove itself from quarantine – despite the threat of COVID-19 continuing to loom over all of the major U.S. leagues – many players and teams in the NFL are beginning to ponder the return of the season and training camps. One notable player who has already been practicing is Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff, who has already been working out with his Rams receiving corps, according to Andrew Siciliano of the NFL Network:
Jared Goff says more Rams teammates have recently joined his quarantine workouts. He says he’s been the “ringleader.”
“I’ve been throwing to the receivers for quite a while."

Let’s hope Goff and his receivers have been wearing their masks at least.
With Goff being the ringleader, it seems likely that the two-time Pro-Bowl QB and his receivers will want to improve on a middling 2019 season in which the Rams finished with a 9-7 record after making it all the way to the Super Bowl after the 2018 season.
While Goff and the Rams fell short in the big game against cagey, masterful veterans on the New England Patriots, expectations were high. Most outlets had the Rams ranked within the top five of best teams in the NFL heading into Week 1, but the team was never able to get out of its own way.
Though they started 3-0, the team lost its next 3 contests, and were only able to get to three games above .500 all season at their best (8-5).
For Goff and his receivers, including Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, Josh Reynolds and tight end Tyler Higbee, the 2020 season will be a chance to show their quarantine workouts were time well spent.
