Undrafted Free Agents 2012: Kellen Moore To Sign With Lions, According To Report

Seven rounds went and six Boise St. Broncos players were drafted, but quarterback Kellen Moore was not one of those lucky six. However, being undrafted does provide Moore with a slight benefit than his six teammates, who helped lead the team to a 50-3 record over the last four seasons: Moore is able to sign with any team he wants to now. And that he did, signing with the Detroit Lions, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

This move does make sense for both sides. The Lions have only two quarterbacks on the roster currently following the departure of Drew Stanton. Incumbent start Matthew Stafford isn't going anywhere any time soon, but Shaun Hill, the backup, might eventually want to move on. This way, Moore lands in a place that does need a third quarterback. Plus, Stafford is always a potential risk for injury, which certainly could land Moore as a backup at some point.
