(ALLEN PARK) – Matthew Stafford still has "no timetable" on when he might sign a new contract extension with the Detroit Lions, but the quarterback said Wednesday that he isn't concerned about what happens with Oakland quarterback Derek Carr and Washington's Kirk Cousins. Stafford wouldn't answer whether he would actually sign a deal before Carr or Cousins, saying he had no timetable for a deal when asked whether he would get one done before them. One of the three quarterbacks, depending on who signs when, could end up signing the richest per-year deal in NFL history. The 29 year old Stafford, according to rumors, could end up with an average salary of more than $25 million per year, which would be a first for an NFL quarterback. He said Wednesday that it's not something he thinks about. In April, Stafford said he "would love to" stay in Detroit and get a long-term deal done with the Lions, who drafted him No. 1 overall in 2009. Since then, he's set almost every franchise passing record, including career passing yards (30,303) and touchdown passes (187). Lions general manager Bob Quinn has said multiple times he would like Stafford to be the franchise's quarterback in the long term.
