With the Raiders and Derek Carr closing in on a possible $25 million a year deal according to Adam Schefter, this puts Matthew Stafford in position to become the league's highest-paid player whenever he agrees to a contract extension. On Tuesday, when I asked Rod Wood if he'd be comfortable making Stafford the league's highest-paid player, he told me he's "comfortable getting a deal done" with him. He added that whether Stafford is the highest-paid or not, he'll likely only be that until the next high-level QB is up for an extension.
