The Saints have a potential need for another franchise quarterback and Lions’ Matthew Stafford is looking for a team ready to win a Super Bowl.
Drew Brees has still not informed the New Orleans Saints on his plans to retire or return. Without knowing, the speculation is still that he is going to retire and take the NBC broadcasting job leaving the Saints in need of another franchise quarterback.
Recently, it was reported that the Detroit Lions and franchise quarterback Matthew Stafford have agreed to mutually part ways during this offseason. Now, because Stafford is not a free agent that means they will either have to trade him or release him.
Obviously, the former is going to be the likely scenario. That means that for the Saints to get him, they are going to have to put together a package that the Lions would like. That shouldn’t be hard though with the capital they have to offer.
With that being said, is Stafford the right fit for New Orleans? With players like Taysom Hill and Jameis Winston on the roster and others a possibility in free agency and the NFL Draft, are they really in need of Matthew Stafford? The answers are yes, and here is why.
