  • Matthew Stafford stopped by the University of Georgia to watch his former college team practice. During a brief media stint, Stafford talked about a lot of random topics. Here are the highlights:
    • Stafford and Matt Ryan, who became friends at the Pro Bowl, teamed up to win their church basketball league.

    • Regarding Calvin Johnson: "No one player is going to replace that guy."

    • When asked if he was shocked about Calvin's retirement, Stafford said, "No. Not to say that I expected it, but I wasn't shocked." Later adding, "I knew the NFL was wearing on him."

    • He joked, "I wore my hat forwards today, so people like me."
