Lions' Matthew Stafford: Throws pick in preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford completed two of three passes for 36 yards and an interception in Sunday's preseason win over the Colts.

Stafford's lone drive of the game started off nicely with completions to Ameer Abdullah and TJ Jones before ending in an unlucky pick. Such small sample sizes mean little at this point in the season. What's more important to Stafford fans is the impressive initial outings of rookie targets Kenny Golladay and Michael Roberts. The depth and diversity of Detroit's receiving corps provided Stafford with a number of one-on-one opportunities last year. With two more in the arsenal, Stafford should be all the more dangerous in a contract year.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Works with private coach in offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford worked with a private QB coach for the first time in his professional career this offseason, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. "I just think I want what's best for this team, I want what's best for me as a player," Stafford said. "If I play well our team's going to play well. It just goes into preparation and doing everything you possibly can."

Stafford reportedly worked with Tom House's 3DQB in Southern California, a group Birkett said focuses on finetuning the mechanics of quarterback play. House's other clients include Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Matt Ryan. It isn't clear why Stafford abstained from seeking this kind of counsel in the past, but one would think it could only benefit him in the long run.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Finger feeling fine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford said his finger, which was injured late last season, is now fine, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports. Stafford said of the situation, "It just needed rest. No surgery, no procedure, anything like that. It feels good, threw with it today. It feels fine. Been throwing with it for a month, month and a half, now. It just took some rest."

Stafford dislocated the middle finger in his throwing hand during Week 14's win over the Bears. He played the remainder of the season, including a Wild Card loss to the Seahawks, but looked significantly affected by the injury, throwing twice as many interceptions to touchdowns during the span. After taking some time off, the quarterback, who is entering the last year of his contract, should be ready for the beginning of OTAs.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Starts contract talks with Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stafford (finger) is in the early stages of negotiating a contract extension with the Lions,'s Kevin Patra reports.

Stafford is entering the last season of the five-year, $76.5 million extension he signed back in 2013, so the Lions hope to lock him in on another long-term deal before preparations for the upcoming campaign intensify. Although it reportedly could be a few months before Stafford inks his contract, the fact that his representatives and the Lions have engaged recently signals the start of that process. With Jim Bob Cooter serving as his offensive coordinator for most of the past two seasons, Stafford has put together his two best campaigns in terms of completion percentage as well as two of his three best touchdown-to-interception ratios.

Lions' Matthew Stafford: Skips Pro Bowl due to injured finger
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Stafford (finger) skipped the 2017 Pro Bowl in order to rest his injured middle finger, reports.

Stafford dislocated his right middle finger (on his throwing hand) in Week 14 against the Bears. While he finished out the regular season and also suited up for the Lions' lone playoff game in Seattle, Stafford missed the Pro Bowl because he opted for rest over surgery as a means to recover. However, it isn't clear how much rest his finger may require, or if his treatment plan will delay the start of his offseason preparation.
