That’s some rather interesting stuff from Mrs. Stafford. She obviously caught wind of the reports and is not happy about the Lions reportedly looking to move on from their longtime starter.
Stafford, 32, missed the final half of last season with a back injury. He has been in Detroit since being selected No. 1 overall in 2009 and holds the franchise records in passing yards and passing touchdowns, and it’s not that close.
Selecting No. 3 overall in this year's draft, there’s a good chance Detroit could land one of the top quarterbacks in the class. Having committed to embattled head coach Matt Patricia, a long-term rebuild could be in the cards.
If that is the case, Stafford might be better off elsewhere. And with the Chargers now looking for a new quarterback, a relocation to Los Angeles could make sense.
