Matthew Stafford Judges Slam Dunk Contest In Florida

Matthew Stafford recently had shoulder surgery in Pensacola, Florida to repair his injured AC joint. The surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews and it has been said he will need three-to-four months to recover. From what I've been able to gather, Stafford is doing the brunt of his rehab there in Florida before getting back to the Lions (although recent revelations will prevent him from rehabbing at the team's facility when he returns). In addition to rehab, he's been able to occupy his down time with some fun:

On Friday, Stafford served as one of the four judges in the slam dunk competition at the inaugural Subway High School All-Star Basketball Game at Pensacola State College between All-Stars from the East and West of the state.

The East's Robert Willis won the competition when he scored a perfect 40 from Stafford and the other judges with a "one-handed, windmill jam that he caught off the bounce in mid-air." That's obviously not the dunk that resulted in the picture below, but, hey, it's good to see he was throwing up judgment with his right arm!
