News: Orlovsky completed 4-of-7 passes for 51 yards during the 2014 season.
Impact: Orlovsky saw a bit of action in a blowout loss to the Saints in December, but he otherwise spent the season watching Matthew Stafford from the sidelines. Next season, Orlovsky may not be back with the Lions, as he can become an unrestricted free agent in March, and Detroit always has a tight cap situation. Kellen Moore, the team's No. 3 quarterback in 2014, will be a restricted free agent.
