The football world raised their collective eyebrows when Matthew Stafford signed his $135 million contract extension with the Detroit Lions that made him the highest paid player in NFL history.
He's not worth that much money. He's a sub-.500 quarterback. He's never won a playoff game.
If that's your perception of Stafford, you haven't been paying attention. Under the tutelage of offensive coordinator, Stafford has quietly developed into an elite-level quarterback - and he's only getting better.
Clay Travis says there's no doubt in his mind that Stafford is a Super Bowl-caliber quarterback, and he wouldn't be surprised to see the Lions signal-caller bring a Lombardi Trophy to Detroit before his career is up.
