Detroit Lions bring back QB Dan Orlovsky


Quarterback Dan Orlovsky, who didn’t play a snap in 2014, will return as a backup quarterback. The team announced on Monday that he had been signed to a one-year deal.

Orlovsky, 31, played in Indianapolis in 2011 for coach Jim Caldwell which gives them a good comfort level. 

Orlovsky, who is comfortable as the backup to Matthew Stafford, also played for the Lions in 2005-2008. He’s also been with the Houston Texans and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Orlovsky (@DanOrlovsky7) had a perfect tweet for the day: "Even though I was furious they chose not to Franchise Tag me, I'm stoked to re-sign with the Lions for another season! #onepride

Quarterback Kellen Moore, a restricted free agent, will not be tendered but general manager Martin Mayhew said on Feb. 20 that he wants to sign Moore again. Moore shined in preseason games in 2014.

Also on Monday, the Lions did not use the franchise tag on Ndamukong Suh.

Defensive end Darryl Tapp was signed to a one-year deal.

I guess good for the Lions organization, but it's not going to move the Lions one step closer to winning in the playoffs.
