Dan Orlovsky doesn't want to rehash the past


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Lions quarterback Dan Orlovsky, who's back with the team after his 2005-08 stint, doesn't like to relive the 0-16 season in 2008. Orlovsky punctuated that debacle by running out the back of his own end zone for a safety.

“There’s not much I can say to unmask the things that happened or erase those things,” Orlovsky told the Detroit Free Press. “My personal aspect of it is I knew I played well. We were just not a good football team. Did I have a part of that? Sure. I wish I played better in certain spaces, but I knew I played well, and I kind of look at it like this: It’s hard to play in this league for four years. It’s really, really hard to play in it for 10 years.

“I get the fears maybe with obviously fans and whatnot, but the organization knows what they’re doing, and I know I’m a good player, and I certainly hope to just be part of changing some of that past, whether it’s directly or indirectly.”

Orlovsky replaced Shaun Hill as Matthew Stafford's backup.


Lions sign Dan Orlovsky to one-year deal


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) The Lions signed quarterback Dan Orlovsky to a one-year deal. He'll replace Shaun Hill as the backup to Matthew Stafford.

Lions continue search for backup quarterback


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) Lions coach Jim Caldwell said "all options are open" when it comes to finding a backup quarterback. Shaun Hill signed with the Rams, leaving only Kellen Moore behind Matthew Stafford.

Moore has not appeared in a regular-season game, and it's unclear if he has a legitimate shot at the No. 2 job.

“We keep looking and we could certainly address it a number of different ways, and all options are open at this time,” Caldwell said, per the Detroit Free Press.

Signing Dan Orlovsky is one possibility. He started seven games for the Lions from 2005-08.


Lions expected to focus on Dan Orlovsky


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Having lost backup quarterback Shaun Hill to the Rams, the Lions are expected to "turn their sights" to free agent Dan Orlovsky, reports the Detroit Free Press. Orlovsky played for Detroit from 2005-08 and spent the last two years with the Buccaneers.

In 2011 Orlovsky played for the Colts under coach Jim Caldwell, now the head man in Detroit. Orlovsky played reasonably well that season, completing 63.2 percent of his throws for 1,201 yards in eight games. He threw six touchdows and four interceptions while losing three fumbles.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2013) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have listed the following two players as healthy inactives for Week 3 at New England: QB Dan Orlovsky (3rd QB) and DE Steven Means.

In addition, cornerback Michael Adams (knee), tight end Tom Crabtree (ankle), cornerback Rashaan Melvin (hamstring) and fullback Erik Long (calf) did not dress for Sunday's game because of injuries. Quarterback Dan Orlovsky, defensive end William Gholston, defensive end Steven Means, running back Peyton Hillis and defensive tackle Chris Jones were healthy inactives.

Mike Glennon to start Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2013) Buccaneers rookie quarterback Mike Glennon will start Thursday's game against the Redskins and play a significant amount, coach Greg Schiano said. He'll be followed by third-stringer Dan Orlovsky.

In three preseason games, Glennon is 26 of 54 passing for 334 yards and three touchdowns, with two interceptions.
