L.A. Rams running back Jared Goff will have an interview with the NFL’s commissioner about the franchise’s decision to move to Los Angeles next season, the team announced Tuesday.
In a statement, the Rams confirmed the team is scheduled to interview the NFL executive on Monday and the Rams have scheduled an interview for the day.
“The Rams’ decision to join the NFL and become a team in Los Angeles will have a tremendous impact on Jared Goff and the entire organization,” the team said in a statement.
“We are excited to welcome Jared and the new Rams to L.O. We look forward to continuing our journey together as a football team.”
Goff has become the focal point of an NFL investigation into the franchise and its owner, Stan Kroenke.
The investigation has resulted in a slew of penalties and fines.
The Rams, who have been fined and suspended by the league twice for failing to disclose the identities of their players, have been trying to get a hearing in federal court to get the case dismissed.
The NFL’s announcement Tuesday that it will move the Rams to Los Angeles in 2019 was a major victory for the NFL, which has been pushing for a team to be relocated to Los Angles since 2014.
In the last year, the league has brought a series of appeals, including to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which ruled in July that the Rams can remain in Los Angls.
The league also has been working to keep the Rams in Los Alamos, New Mexico, the site of the Super Bowl, as part of a deal that allows the team to keep its branding.
