Detroit Lions deal QB Thaddeus Lewis to Bills for LB Chris White

It’s been clear throughout training camp that Kellen Moore will be the third quarterback for the second straight season.

That was confirmed on Sunday when the Lions traded Thaddeus Lewis, who they had picked up on waivers, to the Bills for linebacker Chris White.

Lewis completed six of eight pass attempts in preseason action for 60 yards.

In Thursday’s win over the New England Patriots, Moore was nine of 12 for 150 yards, two touchdowns and a 156.2 quarterback rating. (158.2 is perfect.)

Moore was an undrafted free agent in 2012 out of Boise State. He does not have the arm strength to match Matthew Stafford — few do — but he knows the offense and his limitations. 

With Montell Owens out at least briefly with an injured knee, White can provide help for the Lions on special teams.

White had been a third-string middle linebacker who made the 2012 roster because of special teams per Joe Buscaglia of in Buffalo.

The Bills have confirmed the trade while the Lions have not.
