According to Mike Florio of, the Lions are close to signing quarterback Matthew Stafford. The Lions are in the process of locking up their young talent, signing WR Calvin Johnson in 2012, before he broke the receiving record for yards. Florio writes: ‘Per a source with knowledge of the situation, it would be a three-year extension of Stafford’s rookie deal, which currently has two years remaining.  And the five-year package would pay Stafford more guaranteed money than the $23.5 million he’s due to earn over the next two seasons combined and Stafford’s franchise tag for 2015, which would be a 20 percent increase over his 2014 cap number.’
