Win a Super Bowl and get paid. That seems reasonable. That's what Matthew Stafford just did. The Super Bowl winning quarterback is staying in Los Angeles for a little bit longer.
After defeating the Bengals in the Super Bowl he agreed to a three-year, $129 million extension with the Rams on Saturday.
According to Ian Rapoport, he took less than he could have to help add to a Super Bowl caliber team.
More specifics on Matthew Stafford’s extension: It’s effectively a 3-year extension worth $129M — $43M a year. There are added years for cap purposes. But $43M over the next 3 of the deal. And Stafford took less than he could’ve to help build on a Super Bowl-caliber team. https://t.co/ZTI3EWtgF0

$43 million a year isn't bad for taking less. Doing so to stay in Los Angeles a little longer isn't bad either. You have to leave a little for McVay and company to spend, they don't believe in draft picks.
