$27M/year sounds about right given the contract that Carr just signed. With the way the salary cap is going this shouldn't hurt the team too bad and won't seem that expensive in a year or two.

Plus, next year, all of Suh's money, and all of Megatron's money will be off the books.

Rumor is the deal saves the Lions an extra 5M this year. That gets them to 12M in cap space and cuts are going to be happening soon. Should be primed to make a move for a big contract if Quinn is so inclined. I wouldn't mind shipping off Rudock to the Jets for Richardson, lol.

1 other point that comes to mind as a result of this contract:

We now can use the franchise tag on Ansah because we will not need it for Stafford.
With Ansah using Suh as a FA consultant, I almost want to trade him. But, if he wants more than any non QB, we can just tag him now.

Currently I don't think Ansah is even worth the tag. Given his age and his recent lingering injuries, I really don't want to see him signed long term. If he does have a good season this year then I only want to see them tag him. If he has another stinker then just let him walk.

Staff was playing out of his mind last season before the hand injury. Very comfortable with this. Congrats to Staff for really improving his game--in the Lombardi years, this was not a foregone conclusion.

This is the second time Stafford has been the highest paid player in NFL history - his rookie deal was the biggest also.
It's only going to last until Kirk Cousins, Matt Ryan, Aaron Rodgers, and Russell Wilson sign new deals. Stafford went from #1 to not even in the top ten during his previous contracts.

got in the league at a young age one year before the rookie wage scale went into effect. Stafford's timing was perfect and I expect when he does retire he will have more career earnings than any player in NFL history.

I agree with Rao. Why does anyone think ziggy is worth more than $12M/yr? Much less $20+
