DETROIT (AP) -- Dan Orlovsky says he's pretty confident free agency will be better for him than accepting an offer to be a backup quarterback for the Detroit Lions.
Orlovsky said Monday in a telephone interview with the Associated Press he plans to test the market because he wants to compete for a job instead of being relegated to reserve status behind Daunte Culpepper.
The Lions drafted Orlovsky in the fifth round of the 2005 draft and he played in two games as a rookie. After sitting behind Jon Kitna for two seasons, he started seven games and played in 10 for the NFL's first 0-16 team.
Orlovsky completed 56 percent of his passes last year for 1,616 yards with eight touchdowns and eight interceptions.
