Looks like the highest paid player in NFL history will be sticking with Detroit. The Lions just extended Matthew Stafford's contract to $135 million and five more years. 

Stafford will now be staying with the Lions through 2022. He was at the end of his previous 3-year contract for $53 million. Stafford was drafted #1 in 2009 and has led the Lions to three playoffs in the last six seasons.
