QB approached Detroit staff about potential trade
Sources: The #Lions and Matthew Stafford have mutually agreed to part ways this offseason and the team will begin exploring trade options in the coming weeks for their star QB. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Stafford reportedly approached the Lions about a trade at the end of the season. New GM Brad Holmes and HC Dan Campbell were aware that Stafford could be traded this off-season before their hiring. There are a number of teams who will be looking for QB help this offseason (SF, WAS, IND, NYJ, DEN) so it seems likely this move will happen at some point. The Lions currently have the 7th pick in this year’s draft.
