Lions' QB Matthew Stafford To Open Restaurant In Atlanta

I missed this when Oakland Press' Paula Pasche first blogged about it nearly a month ago, but Lions' QB Matthew Stafford is apparently looking to open a restaurant in the Atlanta area with his girlfriend's brother Chad Hall, who is a wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles.

That's what Hall said this morning during his spot on ESPN's First Take with Lions fan and one-time Andover Baron Dana Jacobson. Hall implied that the restaurant, to be called The Fifth Quarter, is a passion project of his and, should the NFL season not start on time, will help him make ends meet. Stafford, Hall's Dad, and others will be involved in the restaurant, which will specialize in wings, subs, pizza, and clogged arteries (my favorites). Hall said it should be ready to open around mid-August.

Stafford was brought up quite a bit in the segment, actually. Hall says he's been training with him, as he did last off-season, and that Stafford is pretty much 100-percent and will be ready to go when, or if, the season starts.

It's worth a viewing:
