Lions Interested In Re-Signing RFA QB Kellen Moore

According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, the Lions have told people around the league that they’re hoping to re-sign restricted free agent QB Kellen Moore this offseason.

However, Detroit’s plans for backup QB Dan Orlovsky are “less clear.” Birkett mentions that the Lions would like to find a young quarterback to develop this offseason and possibly pair him with Moore as their back up options to Matthew Stafford.

It seems unlikely that the Lions would tender Moore a restricted offer, seeing as it would run them around $1.3 million or so for the 2014 season.

Last year, Moore made a base salary of $570,000, so this would be quite the raise for a player who has thrown a single pass since entering the NFL.

Odds are that the Lions would either sign him to an extension in the coming weeks or wait until later on in free agency to offer him a contract.

Hope Kellen gets his chance SOMEWHERE and shoves it up all these “NFL expert’s” asses !


I agree. All I read last season was how the offence was sputtering and stalling with Stafford. When given the chance, Kellen moves the ball. And wins!

I think Kellen Moore should replace Stafford as the starting QB for the Lions……..
