Kellen Moore wasn't the tallest quarterback prospect in the 2012 NFL Draft class or the one with the biggest arm. He wasn't even drafted.
Former New England
was just one of Friday's many releases. Who else was cut?
Unlike a lot of players with higher "draft grades" than Moore, he will make an NFL roster.
Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com reported Friday that Moore survived the team's cut to 53 men. He will be the Lions' No. 3 quarterback behind Matthew Stafford and Shaun Hill.
Defensive tackle Andre Fluellen, wide receiver Maurice Stovall, cornerback Anthony Smith and defensive end Everette Brown were among the players the Lions released. Running back Joique Bell also still is on the roster.
