EDTShareTweetShareShareNotes: Detroit Lions are likely tied to Matthew Stafford for at least 2 seasonsPhoto by Jonathan Daniel/Getty ImagesAfter a subpar year in 2018, speculation was hot this offseason that the Detroit Lions may consider moving on from Matthew Stafford and draft his replacement as soon as this year.Anyone paying attention to his contract situation knew it was absurd to think Detroit may move on from their franchise quarterback this offseason. But how long are they tied to Stafford financially? When would it make sense to move on from him if the Lions weren’t convinced of his talent? ESPN posted an interesting power rankings of quarterbacks on Tuesday. This was no ordinary set of rankings, however. Instead of ranking by talent, they ranked each team by their level of commitment to their starting quarterback Calvin Johnson Jersey , based “almost entirely” on contract situations. The Detroit Lions came in as the team with the seventh-highest commitment to their quarterback. “Cutting Stafford after 2019 would cost the Lions $26 million against their salary cap (trading him would cost $20 million), while doing so after 2020 would bring only a $10 million cap hit,” ESPN’s Dan Graziano wrote. “Expect Stafford to quarterback the Lions through at least 2020, though he’s not quite as safe as the guys ahead of him in his tier.”Graziano certainly has a good point. And the fact that Stafford has no real competition gives credence to their belief in Stafford. However, while they would incur $26 million in dead cap by releasing him next year, they would save $5.5 million. If Detroit struggles in 2019 and find themselves in a top-five pick situation in 2020 Womens Zach Zenner Jersey , a discussion is probably worth having. But anything short of that, it’s probably safe to assume Stafford stays in Detroit until at least 2021. Although no Lions players made Pro Football Focus’ 25 best players under 25 list, one made their “Just missed” list. Da’Shawn Hand was the only interior defender named to their 10-man honorable mention team. The New York Jets fired their general manager and Vice Preside of Player Personnel on Tuesday. For now, head coach Adam Gase is the interim GM, but this is something to consider as the Jets begin their search:’s Gregg Rosenthal took a crack at listing the Lions’ 2019 starters, and Kenny Golladay Jersey White , admittedly, it’s hard to argue against anything there.For those of you banging the drum to bring Jamie Collins to Detroit (see: me, several times), it looks like he’s headed back to New England. They must be fine with his character... USA TODAY’s Nate Davis believes the Lions are the least-watchable team among the four teams that can’t say no to “Hard Knocks.” (He doesn’t include the 49ers, because there are reports that they will not be featured this year.)On Tuesday, retired NFL offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz praised former Lions head coach Jim Caldwell and current general manager Bob Quinn for how they treated his release back in 2016: The Lions fired their head coach after going 9-7 in 2017 and they went 6-10 in Matt Patricia’s first year on the job Womens Kenny Golladay Jersey , but there’s no sign of second thoughts from the team heading into the 2019 season.Team president Rod Wood sent a letter to season ticket holders saying that the season fell short of the team’s expectations, but added that “I wholeheartedly believe in the direction of our football team.” They wont be asking many of those season ticket holders for a bigger payout in order to see if that faith is appropriate.For all but 5,099 seats in Ford Field, the price of tickets will remain the same or decrease by a few dollars. Of the seats that are seeing an increase, 1,579 will be going up by more than $5 per game for the 2019 season.Wood’s letter also touted the hiring of offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and special teams coordinator John Bonamego as reasons to feel good about the future in Detroit. If he’s proven correct , the team might be in position to raise prices on the rest of the tickets come 2020.
