Randy Moss gives reason why Matthew Stafford wouldn't make sense for Patriots


Ever since it was reported Saturday night that the Lions will look to trade Matthew Stafford this offseason, many have thrown out teams that could make sense.

Given their need at the position, the Patriots have come up a lot, but on ESPN's NFL Countdown Sunday, Randy Moss brought up a good reason why it would not make sense.

Moss noted Stafford has played all 12 of his NFL seasons in Detroit playing in a dome, so perhaps outdoor teams in the QB market like the Bears and Patriots wouldn't make much sense. The former Patriots wide receiver added the Colts would given they are a dome team. Indianapolis has a talented roster and is in a position to win now.

ESPN's Adam Schefter said earlier in the segment the Lions believe they can get at least a first-round pick for the soon to be 33-year-old QB.

Stafford is signed through 2022 and has cap hits of $20 million in 2021 and $23 million in 2022.
