According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Lions and Matthew Stafford have agreed to a five-year contract which is set to make him the highest-paid player in National Football League history. That gives the deal a new-money average of $27 million per year. After an injury-plagued first two years in Detroit, Stafford has started every game at quarterback for the Lions since the start of the 2011 season.
Stafford, 29, is entering his 9th season in Detroit.
Matthew Stafford is now the NFL's highest-paid player.
In April, Stafford made it clear he wanted to remain with Detroit. According to the numbers reported by Ian Rapoport, doing so means sacrificing some in terms of annual average salary in exchange for the security of getting a deal done now. And letting Stafford play out his contract would have sent the Lions down the risky road of escalating salaries, bruised egos and ultimately perhaps starting anew with a rookie quarterback or patchwork veteran. He's completed 61.5 percent of his pass attempts and thrown 108 interceptions. The zero playoff wins is bad - really, really bad - but this is worse: Matthew Stafford is 5-43 against teams who have finished the season above.500. The new contract, if he plays it out, will bring Stafford's total compensation to $262.2 million by the time he is 35.
On December 13, 2015, Stafford reached 25,000 passing yards in his 90th career game, becoming the fastest quarterback to reach this milestone, surpassing the previous record held by Dan Marino of 92 games.
Stafford, the first overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, has thrown for 30,303 yards and 187 touchdowns with an 86.8 passer rating in 109 career games.
