If this is the hand of Martha Ford, it has come swift and terrible at Allen Park.
No one seems safe in the new order that was imposed on Thursday as the Lions fired president Tom Lewand and general manager Martin Mayhew. Even news that head coach Jim Caldwell would be safe seems fleetingly temporal in the chaos and fear swirling around the organization at present. Now, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is reporting that even the future of certain players may be in question; in this case it comes in the form of Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Stafford has no guaranteed money remaining on his contract in 2016. Pride Of Detroit had discussed the options surrounding Matthew Stafford that the organization seemingly has open to them right now in regards to the first overall pick from the 2008 NFL draft. The Lions are in the best position for the first overall draft pick in 2016; the option remains that they might choose to find a different future.
