The Detroit Lions will reportedly discuss a trade for quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Stafford reportedly set to be traded by Lions

Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions are reportedly set to part ways.

Stafford, 32, has spent 12 seasons with the Lions after being selected with the top pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.

But the quarterback apparently asked for a fresh start and the Lions are planning to discuss trade options for the 2014 Pro Bowler in coming weeks, according to widespread reports.

Stafford started all 16 games for the Lions this season, completing 339 of 528 passes for 4,084 yards, 26 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

Detroit were 5-11, missing the playoffs for the ninth time in 12 seasons since Stafford's arrival.

The Lions are without a playoff victory since the 1991 season, having lost in the Wild Card Round in the 2011, 2014 and 2016 campaigns.

The San Francisco 49ers, Indianapolis Colts and Washington Football Team are most strongly linked with making a deal with the Lions for Stafford.

Detroit announced on Saturday they had named Aaron Glenn as their defensive coordinator, while they are reportedly set to make Anthony Lynn their offensive coordinator.

Earlier this week, the Lions agreed terms with Dan Campbell to become their new head coach.
