Matthew Stafford has been mentioned as a possible trade candidate this offseason, but he would prefer to remain with the Detroit Lions.
"I think there's something special about a guy getting a chance to play his entire career in one place," Stafford said ahead of Sunday's season finale at Green Bay. "Not many guys get to do that these days. I would love to be one of those guys."
The Lions signed Stafford to a five-year, $135 million contract extension with $92 million guaranteed prior to the 2017 season, with the first year of the extension coming in 2018.
Detroit would incur a $30 million cap hit if they trade him.
Stafford said he hasn't been asked for input about the future of the organization. Stafford would like that to change.
"Obviously I've been with this team for a long time, seen a lot of people come in and out," Stafford said. "Probably have some unique perspective on some things but at the same time, you know, those guys' jobs are solely to do those kind of things and my job is to score touchdowns and get our offense in the end zone.
"So that's what I'll focus on."
