Peter King: Stafford is a lock to be a Lion

Matthew StaffordAccording to’s Peter King, quarterback prospect Matthew Stafford is a lock to become a Detroit Lion.

Busy night. Very busy night, as the Lions and agents for Matthew Stafford moved closer to a deal to make the Georgia quarterback the first pick in Saturday’s NFL’s draft.

I think the financial parameters of a deal will be done in principal by late this afternoon, though it may not be signed for a while because of its complexity. But you can take it to the bank: Stafford’s going to be a Detroit Lion.

Although I wouldn’t rule Aaron Curry out until Roger Goodell reads Stafford’s name for the Lions’ pick Saturday afternoon, Peter King is usually spot on. He has a great relationship with NFL players and front office personnel and I trust his judgment.

Sorry Lions fans.


Congratulations Lions fans – you (possibly) have your quarterback!
