Being a backup quarterback in the NFL requires more than modeling a baseball cap while holding a clipboard. Much more.
Drew Stanton knows the drill.
He’s started four times in his six-year career. He’s come off the bench in eight games, all with the Detroit Lions, who selected him in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft.
Now Stanton’s an Indianapolis Colt, backup to a rocket-armed rookie who through five starts has lived up to, if not exceeded, the buildup surrounding him when selected No. 1 in April’s draft.
