Hopefully he is able to find another team to sign with this year. But in reality, it is probably too late.

He would be a solid pickup as a backup for any team. Has starting experience, not a locker room disruption. I would not be surprised to see a team scoop him up to be the # 3 this year.

Painter has been with Indy for several years and they weren't going to cut K. Collins so soon after signing him. Tough break for Dan O.

Tough break? It's been understood that Orvlosky has been awful, and thats why they signed a retired drunk to play instead of him.

With the new NFL rules, you will see less teams with 3 QBs, which is really going to hurt Orlovsky.

Sometimes your better off saying nothing, you do realize that.

I hope Dan Orvlosky can catch on somewhere but that might not happen unless someone gets injured

What new rules?
Teams only have to designate 2 QB's now and not 3. So a team can put in a 3rd QB during the game at anytime without losing the use of the other 2 QBs (before, if you put your 3rd string guy in before the 4th quarter, you couldn't use the other 2 QBs in the game anymore). This will help the athletic running QBs get into the game without having to use a RB to run the wildcat. Dan O doesn't fit this profile.

Oh wow, I wasn't aware of that. Interesting.
