The Detroit Lions have filled their backup quarterback vacancy by signing veteran Dan Orlovsky.
Yes, that Dan Orlovsky.
The Lions originally selected the quarterback out of Connecticut in the fifth round of the 2005 draft. He spent four years here, and started seven games, all of which came during the club's winless 2008 season.
He went on to play for Houston (2009-10), Indianapolis (2011) and Tampa Bay (2012-13). He started five games for the Colts - then coached by Jim Caldwell - but has attempted just seven passes since, and none in the past two years.
