On Thursday morning, Lions GM Bob Quinn responded to a text from Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press by saying the report from Smilovitz is “100% False!!”

Now, Smilovitz and WDIV-Detroit are doubling down on their report, saying that they stand by what was said and cited Kelly Stafford’s posts on her Instagram post as evidence.

From WDIV-Detroit:

We stand by our story and by our sources. We find tremendous validity in what we are reporting because of what Kelly Stafford posted on Instagram. Before our report was made, she posted that if Detroit was done with her husband, then they would like to go to the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers need a quarterback after Philip Rivers left.

The fact that Kelly posted that before our report tells us things were going behind the scenes, and our sources later confirmed it.

Again, we are only reporting trade talks for Stafford and those talks have definitely taken place.

Nation, what do you make of all of these rumors? Do you believe Bernie Smilovitz or Bob Quinn?
