    Lions Kellen Moore looking to improve status on depth chart

    After signing a two-year deal to remain with the Lions, quarterback Kellen Moore is looking to improve his status on the depth chart, reports the team's official website. "It's a good place, a good situation," Moore said in a telephone interview from Boise, where he is spending the offseason with his wife, Julie, and their young child. "Ideally, the hope was to be able to go back, as long as there was a little plan in place. I feel like it's a good situation to go back to. I didn't have to deal with all the variables." Head coach Jim Caldwell likes what he sees in Moore. "They all have a chance," Caldwell said at the recent NFL Annual Meeting. "He's got some qualities that you really like." "It's nice that they see some value in you," Moore said. "As a backup quarterback, you're not seen on the field, other than a few August games. But hopefully, you still have an impact on the team – with the other players, helping in the film room. "We enjoy Detroit – stuff that's not football related. Obviously, in the football side of it we have a good room. Matthew's obviously a tremendous quarterback. Dan's been awesome. It's awesome that we're all set to come back." Although Moore would like to see the playing field, he recognizes that the team has its starter in Matthew Stafford. "Obviously, at the end of the day all of us love playing the game of football. Only so many guys get to play. We've got good guys, and we've got a great starter in Matthew. "You have to take advantage of opportunities, whether it's preseason games or whatever." Moore has yet to throw a pass during a regular season game after being drafted by the team in 2012.
