The Detroit Lions made a historic move on Monday night, agreeing to a record-breaking deal with franchise quarterback Matthew Stafford. On Tuesday, the two sides will officially sign the deal and announce it to the world.
You can watch history happen as the Lions told fans via Twitter that general manager Bob Quinn will hold a press conference at 2 p.m. ET along with the newly-signed Stafford.
The Lions will live-stream the press conference, and we will be sure to link the conference once it goes live. Chances are good they’ll be streaming it from the official Lions Facebook page, and if so, we’ll be sure to throw the embedded video in this post, so you don’t have to leave Pride of Detroit to watch.
