LOS ANGELES – Fresh off his first Super Bowl victory, Matthew Stafford has been awarded a four-year, $160 million extension from the Los Angeles Rams, according to reports.

“That should allow the veteran quarterback to finish his career in Los Angeles, sources tell ESPN,” Schefter tweeted.
Stafford was nearing the end of a five-year, $135 million contract extension the Detroit Lions gave him in August 2017. He turned 34 years old last month.
Stafford led the Rams to a 12-5 record, an NFC West title and a Super Bowl ring in his first season since being traded from the Lions. He spent the first 12 years of his professional career in Detroit, passing for over 45,000 yards and 282 touchdowns in the Honolulu Blue.
