Dan Orlovsky Declines to Address Future with Lions

When asked about whether or not he will re-sign with the Lions in the offseason, Dan Orlovsky had this to say:

"That'll take care of itself when the time comes," Orlovsky said Monday when asked if he wants to re-sign with the Lions. "I'm just going to continue to focus this week on New Orleans."

After watching Orlovsky play this season, I do think the Lions should bring him back.  Granted, that may not be an option, as Orlovsky will probably run as fast as he can to a new team.  I guess it depends on both the money and the opportunity to play.  If he were to return to the Lions, he may have to deal with Jon Kitna, Drew Stanton, Drew Henson, and Daunte Culpepper, all of whom are under contract for next season.

Out of those four QBs listed, only Stanton and Culpepper will likely be on the active roster come next season.  Kitna will probably be released or traded in the offseason, and Henson is probably destined for the practice squad.  Orlovsky has shown that he is better than Stanton and Culpepper, in my opinion, so if no other QBs were drafted or signed, I would say Orlovsky should start.

All of this speculation probably is pointless since a new general manager and a new coach would likely have a completely different plan.  All of the current quarterbacks on the roster could end up somewhere else under new management, which honestly wouldn't be all that bad.  I guess we'll just have to wait until we know who the GM and coach will be for next season before we continue to speculate about the roster, but it certainly is interesting to start thinking about the Lions' QB situation for next year.
