Matt Stafford and Lions part ways

He’s still only 33, could have another 4 or 5 years of productivity 

If he can stay on the field he might have another 8+ years.  Look at Brady, Brees, Ben, Rivers, Rodgers.  Playing well at 38, 39, 40+ isn't as rare as it once was.

Anyone who suggests trading for Matt Stafford over Deshaun Watson while "k33pInG MOAR PicKS" gets their dick stomped on.

I've been harping on the Jets not to become HOU or DET.  Teams with high priced, stat producing QB's but incomplete rosters that don't win.  And now in the space of a week both teams are in turm

This. We have been looking for a franchise QB for 50 years.  Now, we hve the #2 overall pick, choice of any QB in the draft other than Lawrence.  This season.  Or, we may have an opportunity to acquir

Oh I agree I don't see a trade happening, but if a trade were to happen, they can probably get him by swapping 2021 1sts and sending a 2022 1st. They'd probably turn around and trade Darnold to the Colts or 49ers for a 2nd

Why the F would we trade 2 picks for a 33 yr old QB? Including giving the #2 spot. 

If Joe D did that I’d be shocked and then I’d be pissed.

The Stafford trade may be worked out by the Super Bowl. Hell it could even get worked out at the Senior Bowl. Reminds me when Alex Smith got traded to Washington on January 30 in 2018. 

The sluts up north will trade for him

Depends on whether or not he still has the love for the game, you see what playing for the Lions did for Calvin Johnson and Barry Sanders

Jets trade #2 pick and a 3rd rounder for the #7 pick and matt stafford.

Jets take Davonta smith at 7, Najae harris at 23 and the best olineman on the board in round 2.

Just rebuilt the entire offense.  Thats tempting honestly.

Sign    This     Beast .... perfect mentor for Wilson. (Brett Favre / Aaron Rogers situation)

lol.  So you're against trading for Watson because it would cost too much.  But you're cool with giving up a 1st rounder or so for a "mentor".  

Awesome.

I agree.  I think we should take wilson at 2 and rebuild from the ground up.

But, if Douglas likes stafford, Give the lions the 2nd pick in the draft and take their 7th pick and throw in a 3rd.

Giving the 2nd overall pick for stafford would be a crime against humanity 

edit: didn’t realize you meant a pick swap

Stafford + #7 for our #2.

I'd give that a thought. Getting a starting QB while keeping a top 10 pick is not a bad proposition. I'm sure someone will tell me why this would be an awful deal. 

 

Barring Watson being available, this would indeed be an excellent deal for the Jets.

Which is exactly why the Lions probably wouldn't do this unless they're head over heels for Fields/Wilson, and don't think they can wait until 7 to get one of them.  My guess is they'd look for more in a deal like that.

Agreed. Detroit owes him a $10 million roster bonus on the 5th day of the new league year that I'm sure they don't want to pay. Maybe he gets traded for a lower round pick or cut before the bonus is due.

Zero interest in Stafford. Wouldn't give a 2nd for him.

This is great news!  There are 4 to 5 teams in the top 10 potentially looking to move up and we hold all the cards.  The Lions loading up for a trade puts us in such a great spot..  Let the bidding commence.

This is shaping up to be a complete transformation of his team.  Sam will have 1 more chance to turn it around  and when he does we'll have assets galore the next 2 drafts.

What I’ve heard:

#Lions will move Stafford and use the pick(s) acquired so that if they need to move up from No. 7 overall for a QB, they can. 
 

FWIW

Exactly what I was saying before. 

The Stafford trade is going to wait until the Deshaun Watson situation resolves itself. It will not be worked out yet. 

Why? 

Because if the Lions goal is to draft a QB this year there gonna want to be talking to the teams drafting 2/3. Which just so happen to both want Watson.

Pats could be interesting. 

I'm going to guess that the agreement to part ways would include a provision that would allow stafford to nix a trade to a team with zero offensive talent like the Patriots.

This probably hurts the trade sam option since he’d be a better win now option for a good team. 

That was never the market for Darnold in the first place. No win-now team is looking to trade a day 2 pick for Darnold to be its unquestioned starter. 

His value in trade is youth and supposedly untapped upside. Different market than there is for Stafford, whose value is about being an established known quantity, not free but not crazy expensive, but is a decade older than Darnold or a drafted QB, and if he’s still at a high level he’ll need another contract in 2 years that’ll be plenty high.

List the teams that need a QB this offseason...

 

Jets

Colts

Saints

Texans

Lions

Jaguars

Falcons?

Who else?

 

Is Belichick really going to ride out his remaining years counting a guys like Stidham and a washed up Cam Newton?

The Pats seem like a team perfectly fine to take the 4th or 5th QB in this Draft.  They might be a Trey Lance or Mac Jones destination.

Cam was truly awful and Stidham couldn't beat him out for the QB1 spot, imagine how bad he is.

I think Belichick finds a way to get a vet starter.

You'd have to think the teams in a Superbowl window - Colts & Saints - are gonna be first in line to sign Stafford. 

Contrary to popular perception, he doesn't have long left. His back is fcked. But he could do a job on a short term deal. Colts, for example, have all the pieces around him; he just needs to be marginally better than Rivers.
