Lions to keep Stanton behind Stafford

Given Matthew Stafford‘s injury history, depth at quarterback might be more important to the Lions than most teams.

They kept stability at the position Wednesday, agreeing to terms on a one-year deal with Drew Stanton, according to a league source.

Stanton, 27, appeared in six games for the Lions last season, making three starts. He threw for 780 yards and four touchdowns with three interceptions. He was the third-string QB, behind Stafford and Shaun Hill.
