Sources told Bleacher Sports on Tuesday that the Rams, who have struggled with injuries in recent years, are in the process of signing three-year, $23.5 million contracts with Wilson and Goff, with the two quarterbacks set to earn the first $14 million of their deals, per sources.
The Seahawks and the Los Angeles Chargers have agreed on a three-point contract extension, and sources told Bleachers Sports on Monday that the Seahawks have also agreed to a three year, $32 million deal with quarterback Kirk Cousins, with a third year of that being guaranteed, per multiple sources.
There are three teams that are still in negotiations: The San Francisco 49ers, Jacksonville Jaguars and the Arizona Cardinals.
The Seahawks have yet to agree on a contract with their fourth-year QB, and have yet at least two teams, the Cardinals and Seahawks, that are willing to part with their quarterback.
The 49ers and Jaguars have both already decided to part ways with Cousins, but the Seahawks are still negotiating on a long-term deal, according the source.
Sources indicated to Bleacher that the Cardinals, who are in need of an offensive tackle, are still looking for a starting offensive tackle in 2018.
The Cardinals are expected to make a big move in free agency this offseason, and could be the team to land the franchise quarterback.
They are expected in a position to land a franchise quarterback, but could also look to add a veteran starter in the draft, according one source.

The Jaguars are in talks with former Cleveland Browns quarterback Jameis Winston.
