Reports: Lions bring back Stanton, Wendling
The Lions made two key signings Wednesday — QB Drew Stanton and S John Wendling — according to various reports.
Stanton, a restricted free agent who played at Michigan State, has signed a one-year deal.
Stanton had a break-though season last year due to injuries to Matthew Stafford and Shaun Hill.
Stanton played in six games, starting three, and threw four touchdowns and ran for another.
It was Stanton who led the Lions as they snapped their road losing streak with an overtime win in Tampa.
Wendling, who played in all 16 games last season, was key for special teams play and was recognized for it as a Pro Bowl special teams alternate.
