No shortage of experienced (and not so experienced) quarterbacks available, and plenty of teams in need.
The Lions have five quarterbacks, a position that has been in a constant state of flux for first-year coach Jim Schwartz over the last week. Beyond rookie Matthew Stafford, who will start Thursday’s preseason finale against the Bills, not much is clear right now for the Lions.
The Lions claimed QB Kevin O’Connell on waivers today and signed free agent Brooks Bollinger.
Houston Texans starting QB Matt Schaub is all but certain to be ready to go for Week 1, but Denver Broncos QB Kyle Orton faces a much more murky scenario.

New England extended an offer to the veteran, with the sides working on a deal, according to a league source.
