Matthew Stafford has been one of the faces of the franchise since the Lions selected him with the first overall pick in 2009.
That almost changed this offseason when rumors surfaced that the team would select a new quarterback with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Trade rumors then surfaced and even caused his wife to fight back.
In the midst of those rumors, Stafford is now selling his Bloomfield Township home, according to the Detroit Free Press.
They are looking for $6.5 million. It has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms and sits on 1.27 acres and 441 feet along Long Lake. The house is 7,720 total square footage and has sports an indoor half-basketball court. It also boasts five fireplaces, a sauna, a wine cellar, a glass elevator with service to all three levels and the largest infinity pool in the state.

Stafford recently spoke out on those trade rumors and stated he never bought into them.
“I really don’t pay too much attention to ’em,” Stafford said of the rumors. “I pay less attention to them than my wife does. But it’s something that doesn’t bother me. I’m here. I want to be here. I love being a Detroit Lion. I love leading this team.
“So all that kind of stuff is just kind of out there to be out there. It’s a slow news month at that point, and I’m just happy to be where I am and ready to deal with this offseason the way it is and try to make the best of the season that I hope happens.”
In eight games last season prior to his season-ending back injury, Stafford threw for 2,499 yards, 19 touchdowns, and five interceptions.
