- IN: Matthew Stafford, Dan Orlovsky, Jake Rudock
- OUT: N/A
OUTLOOK: The real question mark here is if the Lions go with two or three quarterbacks. Rudock played well against the vanilla, backup quality NFL defenses but will most likely not take over the No. 2 QB job quite yet. He actually could probably be stored on the practice squad, but the Lions will not want to subject him to the risk of being snaked by another team. Due to experience alone, Orlovsky will continue to take up a valuable roster spot.
