Here’s Your Paycheck Mr. Stafford…

*From the Associated Press*
DETROIT — Quarterback Matthew Stafford agreed to a six-year deal with the Detroit Lions, who will make him the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft today, his agents told The Associated Press last night.

Tom Condon and Ben Dogra, who both represent the Georgia star, said the Lions will pay Stafford $41.7 million guaranteed and up to $78 million altogether.nfl_draft_065121

Quarterback Matt Ryan, the No. 3 pick last year by Atlanta, got a six-year, $72 million deal with $34.75 million guaranteed.

Stafford’s guaranteed money tops the record of $41 million the Washington Redskins gave free-agent defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth two months ago.

Detroit desperately needs a quarterback to help turn around the NFL’s first 0-16 team, which has had the worst eight-year stretch in the league since World War II. Stafford was a three-year starter at Georgia.

  1. Affliac should be his first endorsement…If you’re hurt because you have no O-line protection and miss work, it won’t hurt to miss work.
