The new league year in the NFL began earlier this week, which means Matthew Stafford’s time in Detroit has officially come to an end.

But, before embarking on his new adventure in Los Angeles with the Rams, Stafford had one final message for the city of Detroit and it’s emotional, to say the least:

Thank you, Matthew. Good luck in Los Angeles. We look forward to raising the #9 into the rafters.
