Where will Matthew Stafford play next season? That is one of the biggest questions heading into the NFL offseason after the star quarterback asked the Detroit Lions for a trade.
And now that there has been some time to evaluate the upcoming landscape of the league, the oddsmakers have established a clear favorite for Stafford’s next team.
Where will the star signal-caller land if the oddsmakers are correct? The San Francisco 49ers.
According to the latest odds from Bovada.lv, the San Francisco 49ers have even odds to land the Lions quarterback via trade.
Behind the 49ers is the Indianapolis Colts, who many tabbed as a potential suitor after veteran quarterback Philip Rivers announced his retirement from the NFL.

If Stafford did move to San Francisco, it would be the obvious end of the road in the Bay Area for starter Jimmy Garroppolo, who would likely be traded. Perhaps a reunion with Bill Belichick and the Patriots could be in order?
Everything remains to be seen, but what we do know is there will be plenty of movement at the quarterback position this offseason, and some star players will be suiting up for new teams in 2021.
Get your popcorn ready.
