“Nothing really surprises me anymore to tell you the truth,” Stafford, acquired in an offseason trade from Detroit, said Thursday. “I know that this is an enticing city to play in. This is an enticing an organization to come play for. We have a bunch of other great players on this team — AD, Jalen, Cooper, all those guys. Great players. So it’s exciting for other people to come in and play with those guys. So, I’m just happy to be a part of it.”
The question is how Beckham fits in with an offense that runs through Kupp, who is among the league leaders in receptions, yards and touchdowns.
“I’ve played with a bunch of good (receivers) in my career, and he’s up there,” Stafford said of Beckham. “He’s a talented guy. It’s one of those things where everybody on our team carves out their role. They do a great job of figuring out what that role is going to be and going out there and proving it — both on the practice field and in games — and then getting those opportunities. I know he’ll do the same. There’s a lot of time between now and that. We’ve just got to make sure that we’re on the same page, go out there and play ball.”
