Matthew Stafford, Sean McVay celebrated Rams trade in Mexico

That didn’t take long.

Hours after the Lions and Rams agreed to a blockbuster trade that sent Matthew Stafford to Los Angeles, the quarterback and his new coach, Sean McVay, had dinner together.

Saturday night in Los Cabos, Mexico, Stafford and his wife Kelly, and McVay and his fiancée Veronika Khomyn celebrated the new union, Sports Illustrated reported.

Kelly Stafford was the connection between the two. McVay is close to her brother, receivers coach Chad Hall. That led to a friendship between the Staffords and McVay in recent years.

In exchange for Stafford, the Lions received Rams quarterback Jared Goff, two first-round and a third-round pick.
