Detroit Lions Agree To Deal With R.J. Archer

The Detroit Lions have made things a bit more interesting at quarterback. According to Tim Twentyman, the team agreed to a deal today with R.J. Archer, the AFL quarterback who participated in the Lions' rookie minicamp as a tryout.

Before this signing, the thinking was that Kellen Moore was competing with only himself for the third quarterback job. What I mean by that is that either Moore would perform well enough to make the 53-man roster or the Lions would opt to go into the season with only two quarterbacks.

Now, with Archer signing, the Lions have two guys set to compete for the third QB job. The Lions could still opt to go with only two quarterbacks, which would mean that the better of Archer and Moore would likely end up on the practice squad if they both clear waivers. Either way, there will now be an actual battle at quarterback to watch during training camp.
