Chargers Sign Goff
Goff, a 6-5, 311-pounder, can play both center and guard. He's a former third-round choice of the Bengals in 1998 (78th overall) who spent each of his first six seasons in Cincinnati. Goff has garnered quite a reputation for his durability, starting 61 of a possible 64 games over the past four seasons, including all 16 games in 2003. Last season, he started the season opener against Denver at center and then switched back to his natural position of right guard for the final 15 games.
Goff made a permanent move into the Bengals' starting lineup in 2000. He made five starts as a rookie in 1998 and 11 in '99 before cracking the starting 11 on a full-time basis. From 2000 forward with Goff in the starting lineup, the Bengals offense improved each season, ranking 29th in 2000, 23rd in 2001, 18th in 2002 and 13th last season.
Financial details of the deal were not immediately available.
