THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — Jared Goff doesn’t plan to do much during the Los Angeles Rams’ six-week summer break before training camp begins.

When he isn’t working out, he’ll probably be playing video games and simultaneously bonding with his teammates, including new center Brian Allen.

“We play Fortnite together,” Goff said with a grin. “We’ll play a little Fortnite, talk about protections on the mics.”

Goff insists he won’t spend any of this time off worrying about his next contract — not even after Carson Wentz got paid by the Philadelphia Eagles.

“You definitely think about it,” Goff said Tuesday after the Rams’ final offseason practice. “But at the same time, I know that none of that is even possible without playing on the field, and being available on the field. I’ll just continue to do what I’ve been doing the last few years, and hopefully it will take care of itself.”

Goff was the first choice in the 2016 draft, while Wentz was the No. 2 pick. But while Goff is heading into the fourth season of his rookie contract this fall with no extension yet, Wentz is all set with a $128 million deal through 2024.
