As news broke Saturday night of the blockbuster trade between the Detroit Lions and Los Angeles Rams that swapped former overall No. 1 NFL draft picks, opponents and former teammates of Matthew Stafford reacted to the trade.
The deal sends quarterback Jared Goff, a third-round pick in 2021, a first-round pick in 2022 and a first-round pick in 2023 to the Lions in exchange for Stafford. However, the deal is not official until the first day of the new league year, which is March 17.

Hmmm… 2 yrs after a @RamsNFL QB plays in the SB the team moves on… how many teams have done that before??? What does this mean for the future of both sides??? Can’t wait to watch, who’s with me???
