Lions will trade QB Matt Stafford

USA Today Sports

The Detroit Lions will trade 32-year-old quarterback Matt Stafford this offseason according to NFL Network.

Detroit will now move forward with a rebuild around recently signed head coach Dan Campbell.

Tom Peliserro of NFL Network reported that the Lions and Stafford mutually agreed to part ways after 12 seasons together.

Stafford threw for 4,084 yards last season with 26 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

Teams in need of a quarterback will certainly reach out to him, and that could include Washington, Indianapolis, and the Denver Broncos.

Stafford has two years and $43 million left on his current contract, and that’s a good deal for a team that’s suited for Stafford’s abilities.

A deal to move Stafford will likely get done before March, when the team will owe Stafford a roster bonus of $10 million.
