Lions re-sign quarterback Kellen Moore to two-year deal

Friday March 6th, 2015

The Detroit Lions have re-signed third-string quarterback Kellen Moore to a two-year contract, the team announced on Friday.

Moore, who was a restricted free agent, has spent the past three seasons as the third-string option behind Matthew Stafford after signing as an undrafted free agent out of Boise State in 2012. He has yet to appear in a regular-season game.

At Boise State, Moore became one of the most prolific passers in NCAA history, throwing for 14,667 yards and 142 touchdowns to just 28 interceptions between 2008-2011. He was the first quarterback in FBS history to win 50 games and is the NCAA's all-time wins leader at his position with a record of 50-3 as a starter.

Earlier this week, Detroit re-signed primary backup quarterback Dan Orlovsky.
