Lions Matthew Stafford jersey trade-in postponed

If you're one of the thousands and thousands of Lions fans with an old Matthew Stafford jersey hanging in the back of your closet, a Detroit realtor wanted to change that: bring it to him and he'll give you an active player's jersey.

Unfortunately, he has to postpone the event.

Jeff Glover, owner of Glover Agency Realtors, wanted to give away 1,000 new Lions jerseys in exchange for your used Stafford jersey. He would then donate the Stafford jerseys to shelters in Los Angeles.

However, Glover told FOX 2 on Thursday, the day before the planned giveaway, Glover said he needed to postpone the event due to outside circumstances.

But people who show up won't be empty-handed. Glover said fans will get $25 to Twin Peaks. 

"While I can appreciate what Stafford has done for our city, as a fan myself, it drives me crazy to see so many Stafford jerseys still being worn by fans at our own games. Imagine how you’d feel if you were our quarterback, looking out into
the seats of Ford Field and seeing another QB’s jersey on hundreds, if not thousands of fans, especially one who’s still in the league and now competing against us," Glover said on Wednesday.

Glover planned to give away Jared Goff, Amon-Ra St. Brown, and Aidan Hutchinson jerseys.

That will have to wait, for now.
