Dan Orlovsky was born August 18, 1983, in Shelton,Connecticut and is a quarterback for the Houston Texans of the NationalFootball League. The Detroit Lions drafted Orlovsky in the fifth round (145thoverall) of the 2005 NFL Draft. He played college football at the University ofConnecticut.
When Jeff Garcia went down with an injury in the '05 preseason, Orlovskyemerged as the Lions' primary backup. He played in two regular season contestsin 2005, including the nationally-televised Thanksgiving Day game against theAtlanta Falcons. In the two contests combined, Orlovsky completed 7-of-17passes for 63 yards, with no touchdowns or interceptions.
Prior to the 2006 season the Lions traded Joey Harringtonand released Jeff Garcia, while signing Jon Kitna and Josh McCown. Orlovskyspent the 2006 season as the third-string QB. Orlovsky was projected to be thesecond-string quarterback in 2007 because Drew Stanton, who was picked in thesecond round of the 2007 NFL Draft, was placed on injured reserve; however, theLions acquired J. T. O'Sullivan, who bumped Orlovsky back to third on the depthchart. Orlovsky did not take a regular season snap in either 2006 or 2007; in2008, O'Sullivan went to the San Francisco 49ers and emerged as the starting QBthere.
On September 15 against the Green Bay Packers, he finishedthe game, completing two of four attempts for six yards.
Orlovsky made his first career NFL start on October 12,2008, in a 12-10 Lions loss against the Minnesota Vikings. He completed 12 of21 passes for 150 yards, with one touchdown and no turnovers. However, heinadvertently ran out of the back of his own end zone for a safety early in thefirst quarter, in what turned out to be the margin of victory. When theystarted blowing the whistle, I was like, 'Did we false start, or were theyoffsides or something?' Orlovsky said. And I looked, and I was justlike, 'You're an idiot.'
Orlovsky also started the final game of the 2008 season, but was unableto lead his team to their first victory of the season; the Lions finished 0-16.Orlovsky announced his intention to explore the free agent market at the end ofthe 2008 season rather than accept a contract as a backup quarterback inDetroit.
He signed with the Houston Texans for a 3 year, 9 million dollar deal on March1, 2009. He was beaten out by Rex Grossman for the backup quarterback positionduring the preseason, and served as the Texans number three quarterback. Afterthe 2009 season, Grossman signed a one-year contract with the WashingtonRedskins, making Orlovsky the backup quarterback for the Texans.
