If you were going to fire the GM and the President, then you probably should have inquired about suitors for Calvin Johnson and Matthew Stafford as well.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the Lions aren’t committing to Stafford as their quarterback beyond this year.
The future beyond 2015 for #Lions QB Matthew Stafford is very much in doubt, as I understand it.

Could a contending team, only a quarterback away take a shot at the former No. 1 overall pick?
The 27-year-old signal-caller has two years remaining on his current contract and would be an $11 million cap hit in dead money if the Lions release him in 2016, per Spotrac.
Blessed with so much talent and potential — Stafford has led Detroit to the playoffs only twice, losing in the NFC Wild Card Round each time.
