Scramble'11: Lions get rolling
By Kevin Seifert
While we await word on the Detroit Lions' pursuit of linebacker Stephen Tulloch, let's pass along several moves the Lions have completed.
Safety John Wendling has agreed to terms on a three-year contract and quarterback Drew Stanton has re-upped on a one-year deal, according to ESPN's John Clayton. Wendling was a Pro Bowl alternate last season after making 30 special teams tackles. Stanton will resume his role as the No. 3 quarterback for at least one more season.
The Lions have now brought back three of their unrestricted free agents: Wendling, Stanton and place-kicker Dave Rayner.
