Lions' Dan Orlovsky: Headed for free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions informed Orlovsky that he will not be re-signed this offseason, The Detroit Free Press reports.

Over the weekend, Orlovsky was told the team will let his contract expire at the end of the league year in order to go in a different direction at backup quarterback. The main beneficiary in this situation is Jake Rudock, the Lions' sixth-round pick in 2016 who will replace Orlovsky as the No. 2. It isn't clear what sort of market awaits the 33-year-old veteran, but Orlovsky should be able to latch on somewhere due to his serviceability as a second-string signal-caller as well as the veteran presence he can provide a locker room.

Lions' Dan Orlovsky: Not needed in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Orlovsky didn't attempt a single pass throughout the entire 2016 season.

Nearly every game the Lions played in 2016 was competitive to the very end. In fact, 12 of their 16 total games were decided by seven points or less. Consequently, Orlovsky was never called upon to play in relief of starting quarterback Matthew Stafford and will now go without having thrown a pass in two of his three seasons with Detroit. Set to hit free agency in the offseason, Orlovsky may don a different uniform in 2017.

Lions' Dan Orlovsky: Struggles in second exhibition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Orlovsky completed eight of 14 passes for 83 yards and an interception in Thursday's preseason game against the Bengals.

Orlovsky was much better in Detroit's first preseason game, and in any case, he doesn't appear to have competition for the top backup job. If the Lions do retain sixth-round rookie Jake Rudock, it will likely just be as the No. 3 quarterback, which usually comes with inactive status on gamedays.
