The might be the off-season of $100 million contracts.  Joe Flacco and Tony Romo are finished.  Aaron Rodgers is close to finishing his deal and we can add one name to that list.

The Detroit Free Press is reporting that the Lions and star quarterback Matthew Stafford on working on a long term deal will probably put him up there with Romo and Flacco.

The Lions, who have spent the past four seasons trying to construct their team around Stafford’s considerable skills, feel the same way.

That’s why it’s just a matter of time before the sides agree on a long-term deal that will keep Stafford in Detroit for years to come at a price that probably tops $100 million.

Both sides want it to happen, both sides need it to happen, and it makes sense for both sides to get something done before the start of the season.

Stafford is entering the final two seasons of his rookie deal, and his cap number will balloon to $20 plus million.  Giving Stafford a new deal will free up cap space, and ensure he and Calvin Johnson are together for years.
