At moment, Lions have one QB on roster

Drew Stanton's expected departure at least temporarily leaves the Detroit Lions with one quarterback on their roster.

Stanton, who spent his Lions career as the No. 3 quarterback, confirmed via Twitter that he had agreed to terms with the New York Jets. Their No. 2 quarterback of the past two years, Shaun Hill, is a free agent who reportedly visited the St. Louis Rams earlier this week.

The assumption has been that Hill would return to back up Matthew Stafford, and that's why Stanton considered it a better career move to sign with the Jets. That scenario could still play out, but to this point the Lions have no agreement with Hill. Stay tuned.
