Matthew Stafford will suit up for a new team for the first time in his NFL career once the 2021 regular season get underway. After 12 years in Detroit with the Lions, the former No. 1 overall pick will be a part of the Los Angeles Rams next fall.
Playing for one team for over a decade could certainly get monotonous, especially given the Lions lack of success over the years. Since Stafford took over in 2009, Detroit had made the postseason just three times and has never had a playoff win.
That lack of success and change explains why Stafford recently said he felt “reenergized” after being traded to the Rams.
