Earlier this week it was reported that the Detroit Lions are open to trading Matt Stafford. His season ended prematurely due to a back injury. Before he got hurt, he was playing at an MVP level and now there are trade rumors? Something doesn’t seem right here.
First things first, I want Drew Brees to come back. I fully believe that Brees will come back, but what if he doesn’t? When healthy, Matt Stafford is a top ten quarterback in this league. It could potentially be worth making a play for Stafford if Drew decides to call it a career and his health checks out. The Lions general manager has come out and said that these reports are “100% false”. Although history has shown us that when these reports come out, typically there is some truth to them. All I’m saying is that it may be something to consider. Hold It.
