Browns sign former Lions 2nd-round pick Drew Stanton

Drew Stanton passes against the Seahawks during a 2017 game in Seattle

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Drew Stanton passes against the Seattle Seahawks in the first half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Dec. 31, 2017, in Seattle.

The following are true facts about Drew Stanton: He's the second-most successful quarterback the Lions have drafted since Joey Harrington, he's had the longest National Football League career of any quarterback taken in the 2007 draft and he's the newest quarterback of the Cleveland Browns. He played for the Detroit Lions from 2008 to 2010, appearing in 12 games.

A career backup, Stanton, 33, started 13 games in five seasons with the Arizona Cardinals while filling in for an injured Carson Palmer.

Stanton becomes the second quarterback the Browns added to their roster this offseason, joining Tyrod Taylor, who was acquired in a trade with the Buffalo Bills. He is 11-6 in his career as a starter while completing 52.4 percent of his passes for 4,509 yards (6.2 per attempt) with 20 TD passes, 24 interceptions and a QB rating of 66.3. He went 2-2 as a starter over three years.

All told, he only completed 51.1 percent of his passes with the Cardinals, a number that causes even former Browns quarterback DeShone Kizer to shake his head.

The Browns are also expected to draft a quarterback in next month's National Football League draft, possibly with the No. 1 overall pick.

It is a unusual signing that came out of nowhere, as the only reported contact the Browns had with Stanton was a chance meeting last week when general manager John Dorsey, head coach Hue Jackson and the rest of the gang were in California for Sam Darnold's Pro Day at USC. Stanton adds another veteran to the Browns quarterback group; if healthy, he would figure to back up Taylor.
