Rod Wood comfortable making Matthew Stafford highest-paid player

Lions General Manager Bob Quinn said last weekend that heís confident that the Lions will be able to reach agreement on a contract extension with quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Given the going rate for quarterbacks, thereís a chance that the deal will make Stafford the highest-paid player in the league and heíll certainly be somewhere right near the top if thatís not the case. Lions president Rod Wood was asked Tuesday if heís comfortable with that.

ďIím comfortable in getting a deal done with him, and weíll see where that ends up,Ē Wood said, via Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com. ďItís going to be whatever it takes, I think, to make it happen from both sides and whether he becomes the highest-paid or not, itíll be a short-lived designation because, as Bob said, and I think itís true, if youíre in the top whatever of quarterbacks, when your time comes up, your time comes up and then somebody elseís time comes up, and they become the highest-[paid player]. Itís a premium position, and you need to have a very, very good player at that position to be credible and be competitive, and I think we do have that, and weíre working on getting a deal done.Ē
