Detroit Lions Tender Drew Stanton, Re-Sign Nathan Vasher

The Detroit Lions tendered a contract offer to quarterback Drew Stanton. The tender is at the original-round level, which is a second-round pick for Stanton. He was drafted in the second round back in 2007 and is set to become a restricted free agent under the rules of the current collective bargaining agreement. It's possible he will be an unrestricted free agent in the new CBA, but that remains to be seen.

In other Lions roster news, Detroit re-signed cornerback Nathan Vasher. He joined the Lions after the first week of the 2010 season as extra depth in the secondary. As the season progressed and injuries began piling up, Vasher got more playing time. Toward the end of the season, he was in the regular rotation at cornerback and played well, prompting the Lions to give him a one-year deal.

Cornerback Tye Hill, who joined the Lions in December, will likely not be back next season. He was not tendered an offer, meaning he is free to sign anywhere he wants.
