Lions releasing Standeford

Wide receiver John Standeford, who caught a game-winning two-point conversion pass from Drew Stanton last week against the Colts, will be released by Detroit today, according to Mike Florio.

Standeford, who’d been bouncing around on the Colts practice squad from 2004 to 2007, finally got a crack at playing last year with the Lions. He made four starts for Detroit and caught 15 passes in nine games.

The 27-year-old Standeford went to Purdue.
