Five lessons the Bears can learn from the Matthew Stafford trade

The Lions started the Week of the Quarterback one day early.

As the NFL was set to turn to a Super Bowl matchup pitting the best young quarterback of his generation, Patrick Mahomes, and the most accomplished passer of all-time, Tom Brady, the Lions agreed to trade their own signal-caller late Saturday night.

They sent Matthew Stafford, who’d asked for a trade, to the Rams for first-round picks in 2022 and 2023, a third-round pick this year and quarterback Jared Goff. The inclusion of Goff, who fell out of favor with the Rams, got the Lions more in return.
