Cliff Avril explains why the Detroit Lions should pass on Tua and stick with Stafford

Whether we like it or not, Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn will both be back for at least the start of the 2020 regular season. That being said, if they want to stick around for 2021, they will have to at least contend for the playoffs this coming season. (Note: nobody seems to know exactly what “contend for the playoffs” mean.)

That being said, there are plenty of fine folks who believe the right move for the Lions would be to select QB Tua Tagovailoa in the 2020 NFL Draft.

One of those people IS NOT former Lion, Cliff Avril, who recently told TMZ that the Lions should stick with Matthew Stafford and pass on Tua if they want to win in 2020.
