Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford is set to join the cast of the highly anticipated second season of Netflix’s hit docuseries, “Quarterback.”, according to Jake Ellenbogen of TurfShowTimes.
Stafford’s decision to participate in the show comes after he reportedly turned down the opportunity to be featured in the first season.
According to his wife Kelly Stafford, speaking on her podcast “The Morning After,” the quarterback was initially hesitant but remained open to the possibility depending on how the first season performed.
It seems that the success of the debut season has convinced him to take part.
In the inaugural season, “Quarterback” showcased quarterbacks such as Patrick Mahomes, Kirk Cousins, and Marcus Mariota. Mahomes.
Mahomes went on to win the regular season MVP award and the Super Bowl of the 2022 season, demonstrating that the show did not distract from his on-field performance.
“Quarterback” represents a groundbreaking partnership between the NFL and Netflix, offering unparalleled access to some of the league’s top players.
For the first time in NFL history, viewers were granted behind-the-scenes access as all three quarterbacks wore microphones during every game they played in the first season.
The show’s producer, former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning, recently said he’s had trouble finding quarterbacks to do season two: “I’d love for someone to call us back and say, ‘I want to do it.’ I had three starting quarterbacks tell me no yesterday, so I’m swallowing my pride.”
With Matthew Stafford on board for Season 2, fans are eagerly awaiting the announcement of the other two quarterbacks who will join him on the show as the docuseries offers a unique glimpse into the lives and careers of NFL quarterbacks.
