NFL Huddle: Matthew Stafford's new contract is a good deal, another Broncos exec busted for DUI

Matthew Stafford agreed to a multi-year extension with the Lions on Tuesday which prompted reactions from SB Nation's NFL blogs.


Pride of Detroit: Signing Matthew Stafford to his new contract was a good deal. Included is this note: in the five years prior to Stafford's arrival in 2009, the Lions started quarterbacks like Joey Harrington, Jeff Garcia, Jon Kitna, Dan Orlovsky and Daunte Culpepper. Some perspective from Pride of Detroit on the Stafford deal.

More reaction to Stafford's new deal:

For the second time this week, news breaks that a Broncos executive is facing DUI charges. Earlier it was Matt Russell, the director of player personnel, who was arrested for DUI, among other charges. It came to light later in the week that Tom Heckert, the Broncos director of pro personnel, was popped with a DUI in June.

Tyler Wilson is having a good offseason for the Raiders. Could he start? Probably not right away, but it's possible. "[Raiders head coach Dennis] Allen has expressed his faith openly that Matt Flynn is the starter until he sees something otherwise to change his mind," Silver and Black Pride writes. "Wilson is chipping away at that "something otherwise" bit by bit though so Flynn needs to show up big when the preseason starts in just 30 days."
