No, Mike Tannenbaum, the Rams wouldn't trade Stafford to the Jets.

An eventful week one is in the rearview mirror, and we move forward to week two. The LA Rams (1-0) have their home opener this coming Sunday against their NFC West Division foes, the San Francisco 49ers (1-0). The Rams had an impressive 30-13 win over the Seattle Seahawks, and one of their bright spots was Rams starting quaterback Matthew Stafford, who went 24 of 38 with 334 yards, 0 interceptions, and a QBR of 88.9.

However, Matthew Stafford's name was recently brought up on ESPN's "Get Up," not because of his recent performance or the Rams win over the Seahawks but because an ESPN personality thinks he could be a target for another NFL team.

Current ESPN NFL Insider Mike Tannenbaum believes the New York Jets should make a trade offer for Rams QB Matthew Stafford

The biggest headline around the league in Week 1 was future Hall of Famer and newly acquired New York Jets QB Aaron Rodgers, who suffered an Achilles Tendon injury on the fourth offensive play in the 2023 NFL season debut of Monday Night Football against the Buffalo Bills. The injury was the worst-case scenario for the Jets and Jets fans everywhere, as Rodgers tore his Achilles and will be out the rest of the year.

This led to free speculation over what the Jets will now do at the quarterback position. Will they go out and trade for a quarterback in the hopes of salvaging their season? Or will they stick with current quarterback Zach Wilson? Well, ESPN NFL Insider, Mike Tannenbaum, suggested something, off the top of his head, that LA Rams fans will shake their head over.

On a recent episode of "Get Up," Tannenbaum said the New York Jets should trade for Matthew Stafford. While that would be a suitable replacement for Rodgers and make the Jets better, that strategy opens the door for a tsunami of questions for Mike Tannenbaum. Such as, why in the world would the Rams trade their starting quarterback, especially coming off a Week 1 win over the Seattle Seahawks? The LA Rams believe they will be much better than people thought, and that week one win could be a sampler of that.

Stafford is the leader of this team

Tannenbaum asserted in his speculative fiction that the Rams aren't going anywhere this season, despite the Week 1 evidence to the contrary. He further compounded his dubious reasoning by asserting that this could be a chance for the Rams to get draft valuable draft picks in return. That reasoning is flawed on so many levels.

It's hard to suggest that the LA Rams want to part ways with one of the best-throwing arms in the NFL today. I certainly don't believe that the Rams are shopping Stafford, and if you heard Rams head coach Sean McVay's postgame speech, you likely agree. Stafford's postgame comments prove that he leads the Rams' locker room, inspiring young players to believe in themselves. The LA Rams in no way, shape, or form would they even think about trading Stafford. No reasonable NFL team would even consider doing so.
