Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is selling his home in the suburbs of Detroit (it can be yours for only $6.5 million), but it has nothing to do with him leaving the Lions. His wife, Kelly, quickly got in front of any theories involving a possible departure from Detroit.”No speculation is needed,” Kelly Stafford said in an Instagram story. “We’re about to have our fourth child and I personally do not want to live on a lake or have a pool with four children under the age of a little over 3. So that is the reason that it’s on the market.”Matthew Stafford is selling his house out in Bloomfield for $6.5 million.

Rumors have been rampant this offseason about the Lions moving on from Stafford or drafting a quarterback to replace him with the No. 3 overall pick in April’s draft. The Lions swiftly shut down any rumors that Stafford would be traded, which ruined any smokescreen that the team had an interest in taking a QB with their first pick.MORE: Why the Lions won’t trade Matthew StaffordStafford stayed a Lion and the team drafted cornerback Jeff Okudah at No. 3, essentially confirming that the rumors were intended to drive up the trade market for the No. 3 pick. Lions GM Bob Quinn said after the draft that no official offers came in from a team trying to trade up. We’ve heard this story before: A star quarterback — in an offseason that swirled with rumors about him playing elsewhere — puts his house up for sale. This time, though, the story won’t end with the quarterback moving south to play in Tampa. “I want to be here,” Stafford said Thursday in his first public comments of the spring. “I love being a Detroit Lion. I love leading this team. All that kind of stuff is just 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 that it is and try to make the best of the season that I hope happens.”His 2019 season was limited to eight games because of a back injury that he said he’s fully recovered from. In those eight games, Stafford threw for 2,499 yards, 19 touchdowns and five interceptions. Projected over 16 games, those stats would have given him the most TD passes and second-most passing yards in the NFL last season.The Lions went winless in the eight games without Stafford.
