Sharing is caring!

According to a report from Tom Pelissero, Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions have mutually agreed to part ways.

From Tom Pelissero:

After meetings in recent weeks in which Stafford expressed a desire for a fresh start, the Lions understood his position and plan to begin discussing trade options in the coming weeks for their star quarterback, per sources.

The sides have had open and healthy discussions since the season ended. But with the Lions starting over again, hiring Dan Campbell as head coach and Brad Holmes as general manager, Stafford told the team he feels it’s the right time to move on and team officials agreed, per sources.

  1. Well here the Lions are rebuilding again with new regime. Stafford wants to play in playoffs and he knows that when rebuilding it takes time that he doesn’t have. It’s time to move on and I wish him well wherever he goes. I hope Detroit gets good value for him in a trade. Lions need a younger leader. ONE PRIDE
