Lions' Dan Orlovsky: Re-signs with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dan Orlovsky re-signed with the Detroit Lions on Friday, James Jahnke of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The terms of the contract are not disclosed, but Orlovsky will remain in Detroit for at least another season. The 32-year-old has cemented himself as Matthew Stafford's backup, appearing in two games last season.

Lions QB Dan Orlovsky throws for 191 yards in second half Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dan Orlovsky completed 21-of-38 passes for 191 yards, with one touchdown and an interception, in Sunday's 42-17 loss to Arizona.

Orlovsky entered the game midway through the third quarter for an ineffective Matthew Stafford, who tossed three interceptions. The backup QB was able to move the ball a bit in the second half, but he did not lead the Detroit Lions to a touchdown until the 1:36 mark of the fourth quarter, when he hit Lance Moore on a 13-yard score. Stafford is Detroit's franchise QB, for better or worse, so don't expect Orlovsky to start anytime soon.

Fine game puts Lions QB Dan Orlovsky in lead for backup job
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Dan Orlovsky inched ahead of Kellen Moore in the battle for the backup quarterback job with the Lions on Thursday with a strong effort in the second preseason game against Washington, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Orlovsky completed 13 of 17 passes for 118 yards. He engineered two touchdown marches in just two quarters of action.

"He's had very good performances," Jim Caldwell said. "Dan is, obviously, a guy that has real good understanding of systems, does a good job in terms of the leadership and he's effective. So he's doing a good job. (But) this is Game 2, so we've got a little ways to go."
