Stafford Sets New Standard for NFL Salaries
I must admit a 5 year extension for $135M for Matthew Stafford came as a surprise, but when you think about it, it makes sense. If Detroit feels he’s their quarterback of the future, then you either pay him the going rate, or let him walk in a year and then start all over. Stafford would have a much better win-loss record of 51-58, if he had better players around him. The Lions are starting to figure that out, and when they do Stafford will put up better numbers. And if he doesn’t his $92M contract is guaranteed.
