  Dolphins | Miami signs Jake Rudock    Sat Jan 12, 01:51 AM

The Miami Dolphins signed free-agent QB Jake Rudock (Lions) to a Reserve/Future contract Friday, Jan. 11.

Footballguys view: Rudock has spent most of his time in the pros with the Lions. A sixth-round pick out of Michigan in the 2016 NFL draft (Lions), Rudock is tough, plays with heart but lacks a starter's skill set. He's likely just a camp arm for the Dolphins and whatever direction they go in for 2019.

  Lions | Detroit adds several to practice squad    Sun Sep 2, 07:41 PM

The Detroit Lions signed LB Alex Barrett, CB Michael Ford, WR Chris Lacy, S Rolan Milligan, QB Jake Rudock, LB Darnell Sankey and OT Dan Skipper to the practice squad on Sunday, Sept. 2.

Footballguys view: Rudock has been around for a couple of years as a developmental quarterback. He didn't make the active roster this year as the team went with Matt Cassel as the primary backup to Matthew Stafford in 2018.

  Lions | Jake Rudock accurate in loss    Sat Aug 18, 02:16 AM

Detroit Lions QB Jake Rudock completed 23 of his 30 pass attempts for 171 yards and a touchdown in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 17 against the New York Giants. He also rushed for a score. QB Matt Cassel completed six of his nine attempts for 42 yards, no touchdowns and an interception.

Footballguys view: Rudock and Cassel are competing to be the primary backup to starting QB Matthew Stafford. A sixth-round pick in 2016 out of Michigan, Rudock has consitent accuracy at all field levels and plays with plenty of moxie. We'll see if he can continue to impress the Lions brass, and of course we're monitoring him in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Lions | Two scores for Jake Rudock    Fri Aug 17, 10:17 PM

Detroit Lions QB Jake Rudock completed 23 of his 30 passes for 171 yards and a touchdown and rushed three times for seven yards and another score in a 30-17 preseason loss to the New York Giants Friday, Aug. 17.

Footballguys view: Rudock is trying to win the backup job behind Matthew Stafford in 2018. His main competition is seasoned veteran Matt Cassel. A sixth-round pick in 2016 out of Michigan, Rudock has consitent accuracy at all field levels and plays with plenty of moxie. We'll see if he can continue to impress the Lions brass, and of course we're monitoring him in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Lions | Jake Rudock's spot in jeopardy?    Fri Jul 20, 11:27 PM

Detroit Lions QB Jake Rudock is unlikely to beat out QB Matt Cassel for the backup quarterback job, according to Kyle Meinke of MLive.com, and Meinke doesn't expect the Lions to keep three quarterbacks on the roster.

Footballguys view: A sixth-round pick out of Michigan back in 2016, Rudock has been developing for the last two seasons behind Matthew Stafford. He doesn't have a rocket arm but Rudock is tough and can make accurate short-to-intermediate throws. We'll see if he can hold off Cassel for the backup job to Stafford in 2018.

  Lions | Lions hosting backup QB competition    Wed Jun 6, 06:29 PM

Detroit Lions QB Jake Rudock received most of the second-team reps Wednesday, June 6, after QB Matt Cassel took most of them on Tuesday, June 5. The club appears to be giving both signal-callers an equal opportunity to win the backup job behind QB Matthew Stafford.

Footballguys view: Neither one is interesting as dynasty prospects. Cassel is well known by the NFL community from his days as a starter. Rudock is much more unknown, but from his college days at Michigan he's a player with a ton of moxie and toughness in the pocket. We're not expecting much from him if he ever gets the chance to start.
