In addition to this news, the spotlight is shining brightly on “Quarterback Season” due to the imminent arrival of its second season. Therefore, in this article, we will delve into the details surrounding “Quarterback Season 2.”
Matthew Stafford Joins ‘Quarterback’ Season 2 Lineup
Matthew Stafford is confirmed as one of the featured NFL quarterbacks in the upcoming season of the immensely popular Netflix series “Quarterback,” as reported by Turf Show Times.
The show, produced by legendary quarterback Peyton Manning, has encountered challenges in securing subjects for its second season. Stafford is the first quarterback to agree to participate, contrasting with several others who openly declined the opportunity. Interestingly, Stafford had initially declined involvement in Season 1 but has now opted to join the cast for Season 2. In the previous season, notable quarterbacks featured were Patrick Mahomes, Kirk Cousins, and Marcus Mariota.
Notably, quarterbacks Trevor Lawrence, Dak Prescott, Tua Tagovailoa, Justin Fields, Geno Smith, and Jalen Hurts have all revealed that they turned down offers to be part of the upcoming season of the show.
Manning expressed his eagerness for more quarterbacks to come forward, stating, “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. I think maybe some guys are thinking that it is going to be a distraction, even though I told a couple of them, ‘I guarantee you’ll win the Super Bowl like Mahomes if you do it.'”
