The NFL world was ecstatic as the Los Angeles Rams defeated the Cincinnati Bengals and won Super Bowl LVI. The Rams took a huge risk when they decided to mortgage their future to acquire Matthew Stafford, QB for the Detriot Lions, a team that hadn’t played more than 4 playoff games in over a decade.
After just a year in Los Angeles, Stafford won the Super Bowl, proving his worth as a great QB and that he wasn’t the problem in Detroit. Now the Rams have renewed the World Series-winning QB to a 4-year, $160 million contract.
“He’s worth more than $40 million” – Colin Cowherd praises Matthew Stafford for deciding to cut his salary
On the radio show The Herd with Colin Cowherd, the host welcomed Stafford’s decision to take a pay cut when he returns to LA “Matt Stafford took less than he could have gotten. This is a rare, very smart move that costs less money. He’s worth more than $40 million.” said cowherd.
The former No.1 draft pick already has a national commercial with AT&T. “And Stafford is also smart enough to realize he’s had a really good year, but he’s trying to leave a legacy here and that’s really important.” Added cowherd. Stafford’s cap hit is just 6.7%, which is a bit low for a QB who just won a Super Bowl.
Aaron Rodgers signed a massive contract with the Packers that made him the league’s highest-paid QB. If we compare Rodgers and Stafford’s playoff stats, the Rams QB leads in all categories. This shows that Matthew Stafford makes more than dollars. He’s building a legacy.
The same can’t be said for Rodgers, who is considered selfish by almost everyone in the league. Due to his incessant need to be spoiled, star WR Davante Adams was forced to leave Green Bay as the organization couldn’t afford the 29-year-old recipient. Matthew Stafford is doing exactly the same as Tom Brady. The 7-time Super Bowl champion has been known to increase his own salary to allow the team to onboard new weapons.
“Matt Stafford four or five good years to finish his career, I think you’re going to see him and Aaron Rodgers very differently.” Cowherd closed. The 2022 season will be an exciting season with high-octane games and great QBs battling each other to win the Lombardi Trophy.
