Matthew Stafford extends his contract with LA Rams
The veteran quarterback has reached a contract extension with the Super Bowl winners for another four seasons worth $160 million and $135 million are guaranteed.
Matthew Stafford had a successful first season with the LA Rams and he helped the team win their first Super Bowl since they moved back to Los Angeles. This weekend the veteran quarterback agreed to extend his stay in Los Angeles and signed a four-year contract extension that will run through the 2026 campaign.
Stafford will reportedly make $160 million in those four seasons and $135 million are guaranteed. This will allow the former Detroit Lions quarterback to finish his career in Los Angeles with the Rams and attempt to win one more Super Bowl before calling it quits.
Successful first season with the Rams
Matthew Stafford threw for a total of 4,886 yards and 41 touchdowns and he matched his career high in making his debut in the NFL in 2009 with the Detroit Lions. Stafford was traded to the Rams last season in exchange for Jared Goff, who failed to win the Super Bowl with the franchise in 2018.
In Super Bowl LVI the Rams defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 at the SoFi stadium and Stafford threw for 282 yards and three touchdowns. He was successful with the Los Angeles franchise during the postseason, throwing for 1,188 yards and nine touchdowns.
