It was reported early this morning by Detroit Local 4′s Bernie Smilovitz that the Detroit Lions were engaged in trade talks for quarterback Matthew Stafford.
The Lions hold the No. 3 overall pick in this year’s draft so they do have an opportunity to select a high-level quarterback not named Joe Burrow because he’ll likely go No. 1 overall.

Or it’s bait. There are teams that would love to swap picks with the Lions to get the second-best quarterback in the draft. Many believe that’s Tua Tagovailoa from Alabama.
The trade rumors aren’t true, according to Detroit’s general manager Bob Quinn.
