According to the Wall Street Journal, Stafford and his wife, Kelly, have purchased two adjacent, Los Angeles homes from hip-hop star Drake. The couple reportedly spent a total of $11 million on the properties, which was well over the $7.4 million asking price for the 3.6-acre parcels in the San Fernando Valley Region.
The Staffords already bought a 15,000-square-foot home in the same area for $19.6 million last summer, after Matthew was traded from the Lions to the Rams. The couple reportedly spent $5 million and $6 million, respectively, on Drake’s former properties.
After the Super Bowl win vs. the Bengals, Rams and Matthew Stafford have agreed on a four-year contract extension. The new deal is worth $160 million of which $135 million is guaranteed. Stafford is heading into the final year of his current contract, which will pay him a total of $23 million. The base salary for Stafford's current deal is $12.5 million, and he has a roster bonus of $10 million, plus a workout bonus of $500,000.
