Lions Release QB R.J. Archer
The Detroit Lions have parted ways with quarterback R.J. Archer to make room for the newly-signed Kassim Osgood. It came out on Wednesday night that Osgood was joining the Lions, and the team announced on Thursday morning that Archer was released.
Archer originally signed with the Lions back in June. He took part in the team's rookie minicamp in May and was then signed a month later in order to give Kellen Moore some competition at the quarterback position. Considering Archer didn't see any real action in the preseason, it's clear that Moore won the competition for the No. 3 quarterback job.
