Report: Martin Mayhew Not Confident With Kellen Moore As Back-Up

726px-Lions_backup_quarterback_Kellen_Moore_hands_the_ball_offAs the Detroit Lions approach the 2014 season they have some serious personnel decisions to make, according to Detroitjockcity.com.

With a Ndamukong Suh contract extension looming and veteran players like Nate Burleson getting cut, one might figure that the Lions would try to save even more money by moving QB Kellen Moore up on the depth chart.

Considering current #2 Shaun Hill figures to be in demand on the free agent market this offseason. such a minor move would be a no-brainer right?

However, according to a tweet, Detroit Lions GM Martin Mayhew who made this comment to Josh Katzenstein of the Detroit News:

But Moore ended his college career “with an amazing 50-3 record as a starting quarterback, shattering the NCAA all-time wins record for a quarterback, previously held by Colt McCoy of Texas with 45 wins,” according to the Boise State website.  “Moore exited Boise State with nearly every single season or career passing record, including total offense, yards, completions, completion percentage, touchdowns, pass efficiency and lowest interception ratio.”

Thus, the rookie quarterback still has a lot of upside and can easily be traded and do well at another franchise.
