Bob Quinn won’t consider trading Matthew Stafford, period

When it comes to chatter regarding the possibility of trading a quarterback, there are two ways to handle it. There’s the equivocal, never-say-never 49ers approach, which on the surface creates the impression that the player isn’t on the block but which sends a deeper message that he’s definitely available.
