Kelly Stafford: I thought it was a relatable topic to speak on

"I spoke on a topic that I think, it’s relatable, to the fact that it’s hard to relate to someone who is ten years younger than you.

And I do think that’s entirely true. But I’m not in an NFL locker room. I’m not spending every day with these teammates," Kelly added. Stafford, 35, arrived in the NFL in 2009 when he was the first overall pick of the Detroit Lions.

Stafford has been in the NFL for a long time and he finds it strange that nowadays players would rather spend time on their phone instead of with teammates. "It's kind of crazy. So, Matthew's been in the league a long time. He's like, 'The difference in the locker room has changed so significantly.'

They have a lot of rookies on their team, they're very young. But he's like, 'I feel like I can't connect,'" Kelly said on "The Morning After With Kelly Stafford" podcast. When Rams head coach Sean McVay was asked about Kelly Stafford's comments, he took those comments as "a joke."
