Lions' Matthew Stafford says contract has no effect on play
In a recent interview, Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford said that his new contract doesn't have any effect on his on-field play.
Prior to the start of the 2017 season, Stafford signed a five-year extension worth a record $135 million. But, speaking with ESPN's Scott Van Pelt, he said that he would be playing the same way regardless of what he's making or what his contract situation is.
After notching 292 yards and 4 touchdowns in his first game of the season, Stafford is projected for 276.8 pass yards, 1.71 touchdowns and 17.7 FanDuel points in Week 2. He'll cost $7,900 in a matchup with a tough New York Giants defense.
