Matthew Stafford was drafted by the Detroit Lions No. 1 overall back in 2009 and has been their starting quarterback ever since. However, his time in Detroit may be coming to an end as he is reported available for teams to trade for in the upcoming offseason.
If the Lions part ways with the 32-year-old signal caller, there are multiple teams expected to be interested.
Matthew Stafford Most Likely Trade Destination Odds
The opening odds on FanDuel Sportsbook (the bet is only available for users in Colorado so far) feature the Indianapolis Colts as the front runner with odds set at +210. They may be on the search for a new quarterback as their starter from last season, Philip Rivers, recently retired.
Teams following the Colts include the New England Patriots (+350), the San Francisco 49ers (+350), the Miami Dolphins (+400), the Carolina Panthers (+900), and the Washington Football Team (+1100). The odds for Stafford to stay in Detroit and continue starting for the team next season are set at +500.
Obviously, the teams with the highest odds all have question marks regarding the quarterback position. Teams looking to make a splash in the offseason could trade for veteran player like Stafford and truly see what his possibly game changing potential would be playing for a team other than the Lions.
For now, it is all speculations and rumors as to where Stafford will be suiting up next season. However, there is no doubt that this will remain a juicy storyline for the entirety of the offseason.
