Lions’ Matthew Stafford’s wife reveals why Detroit home is for sale
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has dealt with his fair share of trade speculation this offseason. Of course, the rumors have gained steam once again after it was revealed that he is set to sell his $6.5 million home in Detroit.
The move has raised plenty of speculation regarding Stafford’s supposed uncertain future with the Lions. Fortunately, his wife has since managed to clear the air on what went into their decision, via Pride of Detroit:
“No speculation is needed. We’re about to have our fourth child and I personally do not want to live on a lake or have a pool with 4 children under the age under a little over 3.”
The explanation from Stafford’s wife is an easy solution to a potential problem they were facing at home. Regardless, this will likely not do much to prevent the rumors from continuing to swirl going into the 2020 NFL season.
Stafford had reportedly been on the trading block at the start of the offseason that was then followed up by his rumored request for a trade. There had been plenty of speculation regarding the Lions’ interest in Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa leading up to the 2020 NFL Draft. After all, the veteran is coming off consecutive seasons where he dealt with back injuries and is now entering his 12th year in the league.
Aside from signing backup quarterback Chase Daniel, Detroit has since done little to secure a potential contingency plan in the event that they part ways with Stafford. For now, he and his wife are simply focused on finding a new home to raise their young children.
