Detroit announced it has agreed to a five-year contract extension with Stafford that keeps him with the team through the 2022 season. The deal eclipses the $25 million average annual salary Derek Carr received this offseason in his new contract with the Oakland Raiders.
Though the deal is a financial record breaker, Stafford has already broken other records, having pocketed more National Football League money through age 28 than any other player in National Football League history: $110.5 million.
Detroit reached the play-offs last season with a 9-7 record to finish second in the NFC North, the third time in six years they have reached the post-season. The Lions earned the number 1 pick after going 0-16 in 2008.
It may have caused some consternation and surprise when the start of training camp hit without an extension being done but Stafford's agent, Tom Condon, has a history of getting similar deals done on a similar timeline to what we saw play out here. Lions President Rod Wood told Crain's before the 2016 season that initial talks were underway on a new contract, and speculation about an extension heated up in recent months.
