Lions notes: How accurate of a deep ball passer is Matthew Stafford?

He’s got a big arm, but how accurate is it? It’s common knowledge that Matthew Stafford has one of the strongest arms in the league, but is it accurate? Jonathan Kinsley of Brick Wall Blitz did a very intensive study of NFL quarterbacks and their deep ball accuracy.

Matthew Stafford looking for big-time payday from Lions

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford plans to wait for Oakland Raiders Derek Carr to reset the quarterback market before finalizing a new deal, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. What It Means: Stafford and Carr are both targeting top-tier money (Andrew Luck's average annual value is $24.5 million).
