Several Lions Players Texted Matthew Stafford About Joining The Rams

Minnesota Vikings v Detroit Lions

The NFL season hasn't even technically ended yet, but this offseason could be historic.

Los Angeles Rams pending trade for Matthew Stafford could have a ripple effect in Southern California throughout the offseason. With the veteran quarterback set to join Sean McVay in Los Angeles, players could be interested in following him there, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Shortly after the Rams and Detroit Lions agreed to a trade that would send Matthew Stafford out west, the quarterback began receiving texts from players that wanted to come join him in Los Angeles, per sources.
One of those players expected to be interested in joining Stafford in Los Angeles is Lions wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr, per sources. Jones is scheduled to be a free agent this winter; he grew up in Fontana, California, and later attended Cal. The Rams and Jones seem like a natural fit even before free agency begins March 17.

As soon as this deal goes down for the Los Angeles Rams officially, the automatically become one of the favorites for next year to play in the Super Bowl which happens to be in Los Angeles.
