Rams QB Jared Goff arrives in LA: ‘It feels like my home and where I belong’
Though Jared Goff is a Northern California native, he’s home in Los Angeles.
Goff, the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, met with the LA media for the first time on Friday.
He’s ready to get to work and earn the starting quarterback job with the Los Angeles Rams.
But first, he needs some sleep.
"He slept three hours last night, that goes with the territory," said Rams coach Jeff Fisher.

From the anouncement on Thursday night to his late-night flight to Los Angeles, it’s been a crazy 24 hours for Goff. He’s heard from teammate Todd Gurley and also, from Dodgers star outfielder Yasiel Puig, who offered to show Goff around town.
"It was a really cool move by him," Goff said of Puig’s tweet.
Goff, who passed for 4,714 yards and 43 touchdowns during his final season at Cal, knows what lies ahead for him — hard work.
"I’m going to come in, work hard and see what happens. I hold myself to a high standard," Goff said.
