Matt Stafford inked a contract extension with the Detroit Lions that will see him earn $76.5 million over the next five years, including $41.5 million in guaranteed new money.

Donovan McNabb, for one, doesn’t feel Stafford is worth that much. On NFL Total Access Tuesday night, McNabb argued that Stafford has done nothing for the Lions in his career, and that contracts should come down to wins and losses.
