The Rams and quarterback Matthew Stafford have agreed to a contract extension that will keep the 13-year veteran with the Rams, the team announced Saturday.

The deal has a four-year term and is $160 million, with $135 million guaranteed, according to a person with knowledge of the terms who was not authorized to speak publicly about the deal and asked not to be identified.

Stafford’s new contract, 34, was a foregone conclusion after he guided the Rams to a victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium.

Stafford entered the final year of a five-year, $135 million contract he signed with the Detroit Lions in 2017. He is expected to carry a $23 million salary cap this season, according to Overthecap.com, and should receive a $10 million roster bonus Sunday, according to Sportrac.com.

Stafford, the first pick in the 2009 NFL draft, asked the Lions for a trade after the 2020 season. The Rams sent quarterback Jared Goff, two first-round draft picks and a third-round pick to the Lions for Stafford, who had never won a playoff game.

But Stafford showed his skills last season.

He has 41 touchdowns with 17 interceptions and led the Rams to a 12-5 record and the NFC West title.

Stafford, who developed several game-changing drives during the regular season, was at his best in playoff victories over the Arizona Cardinals, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Francisco 49ers before leading a comeback win over the Bengals.

This is an evolving story. The Times will soon learn more about Stafford’s new deal with the Rams.
