The Detroit Lions apparently have zero interest in trading star Matthew Stafford.

There have been some reports of trade interest, and there’s been a ton of speculation the Lions will draft Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

However, the team wants people to know it’s nonsense. General manager Bob Quinn told the Detroit Free Press that the rumors are “100% false.”

If the Lions trade Stafford, then I’m just done with this joke of a franchise. I’ve been a Lions fan since birth. I’ve been there since day one.

If Stafford gets traded, I’m just done. I don’t have the spirit to do this anymore. The Lions have broken my soul time and time again.

The only thing I have left is watching Stafford air it out. The only thing that gives me joy is watching him cock back and letting fly.

If the Lions dump him, then I’m out. I’m just out. I just don’t have the spirit for this nonsense anymore. I just don’t.

He’s the best player on the team, and he is the only bright spot on our team. If the Lions dump him, then screw it. I’m out!
