Stafford: 'Cousins option' wasn't on table with new deal

Stafford: 'Cousins option' wasn't on table with new deal

Multiple media outlets are reporting that the Detroit Lions and Quarterback Matthew Stafford have agreed on a contract extension.

The Lions on Monday night announced they had agreed to the five-year deal with Stafford without disclosing specifics.

Also, the Stafford deal surpasses Derek Carr's new contract of five years worth $25 million per season.

The Lions earned the number 1 pick after going 0-16 in 2008. Stafford has another factor in his history that helped make his new long term deal attractive to ownership: the quarterback hasn't missed a game since 2011. It's still a record-breaking deal, putting Stafford at an annual average of $27 million. In his first eight seasons with the Lions, he's made over $110.7 million. Since signing with the team, he's started 109 games and compiled a 51-58 record.

Critics often note that Stafford is winless in three playoff games with the Lions, to which supporters note that he's not exclusively responsible for defeats. Over his career, he has 30,303 passing yards with 187 touchdowns and 108 interceptions. But he's the benefactor of great timing as the quarterback market is in the process of resetting. He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2014 and has led Detroit to two playoff berths. Stafford led the National Football League in pass attempts in both 2011 and 2012, throwing for 5,038 yards and 41 touchdowns in 2011 with 4,967 yards and just 20 touchdowns a year later.
