Lions signed Western Michigan QB Alex Carder.

Carder (6-foot-1 7/8, 216) showed some athleticism with a 4.92 forty, 33-inch vertical, and 9-foot-5 broad jump at Western Michigan's March 12 Pro Day. Not an NFL-caliber pocket passer, Carder completed only 58.5 percent of his senior-year throws with a 6.66 YPA and 13:10 TD-to-INT ratio. He also missed six games with a fractured right (throwing) hand. He'll try to beat out Kellen Moore for No. 3 duties in Detroit.
