The quarterback position is a very important one in the NFL, and that has been the main topic of discussion since the New England Patriots season ended at the hands of the Tennessee Titans during the Wild Card round.
Former NFL linebacker Bart Scott thinks he has a solution to that problem that doesn’t involve bringing an aging Brady back to the team.
On Tuesday’s edition of ‘Get Up,’ — Scott laid out why this makes sense for both sides as he doesn’t think the Lions will be contenders in 2020 and he believes they will ultimately drat Tua in the NFL Draft.
“I think Matt Patricia can really do his former boss who got him started in coaching and groomed him up in Bill Belichick (a favor) and send Matthew Stafford to the Patriots in return for a first-round draft pick,” Scott said H/T to NESN for transcribing the video from ESPN.
“It allows Matt Patricia to buy some time. Listen, Matthew Stafford is an elite quarterback. He’s a Pro Bowl-caliber quarterback, but what have you won with him? He’s the only asset you have. This team is not going to win or contend in that division next year, the year after. You get Tua (Tagovailoa), Tua can sit for a year and now Patricia has his quarterback of the future that can retool and rebuild this offense and rebuild this team in Detroit.”
During the 2019 season, Stafford threw for 2,499 yards and 19 touchdowns with five interceptions, while recording career highs in yards per attempt (8.6), yards per completion (13.4) and passer rating (106.0)
