The Detroit Lions traded away QB Matthew Stafford to the LA Rams, in exchange for their QB Jared Goff, plus a 2021 3rd round pick AND a 1st round pick in 2022 and 2023.
That's amazing, and it clearly says the Rams lost faith in Goff a long long time ago and think Stafford is leagues better.
I think this is actually great for both teams. The Rams are Super Bowl contenders defensive wise already. And I do think that Stafford is a significant improvement over Goff, who is just average. All the pressure will be on Stafford though to deliver now.
And for the Lions who seem to always be in rebuild mode, they get a competent QB and the ability to draft key playmakers around Goff for the next 3 years. OR ya know, draft a better QB in that time.
Think Stafford will make the most of his new team? What are the chances he gets to the Super Bowl in let's say the next 5 years?
