According to Lions GM Bob Quinn, franchise QB Matthew Stafford is “cleared medically” and would be a full-participant in any offseason workouts they would have right now. (ProFootballTalk on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Before Stafford had to be sidelined for the last eight games in 2019 due to a back injury, he was lighting the league on fire. He threw for almost 2,500 yards, 19 TDs and only five interceptions. He was on pace to have a career-year, similar to 2011 when he threw for over 5,000 yards and 41 TDs. The Lions seem comfortable with Stafford moving forward, and currently own the 3rd overall pick in the NFL Draft. With three QBs set to go in the top-10 (Joe Burrow, Justin Herbert, Tua Tagovailoa), Quinn has confirmed Detroit is talking to teams about a trade for the 3rd overall pick. He’s likely comfortable doing so knowing he’s got a healthy Stafford running his offense moving forward.
