According to Quinn, Stafford would be ready to fully participate in the offseason program if it started next week.

He also said that Stafford calls at least once a week to check in.

"I know he's working out, feeling good," Quinn said.

Stafford suffered broken bones in his back last season and played just the first eight games for Detroit. Those were his first missed starts in 136 games.

He threw for 2,499 yards, 19 touchdowns and five interceptions in those eight games.

The team placed him on injured reserve in December which ended his season.
