Georgia quarterback and former Highland Park standout Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions reached an agreement late Friday and it is the best one to ever hit the NFL
Six-year, $78 million deal that includes an NFL-record $41.7 million guaranteed. That's right the No.1 pick has surpassed all former mumero unos.
The deal represents the largest amount of guaranteed money for any player, rookie or veteran in NFL history, exceeding the $41 million in guaranteed that DT Albert Haynesworth received from Washington at the beginning of free agency this offseason.
Stafford and Haynesworth are the only players to top the $40 million guaranteed threshold.
