The Detroit Lions released quarterback Scott Dreisbach on Wednesday.

Dreisbach was signed by the Lions on December 4 of last season to be the team's third-string quarterback and was allocated to the Scottish Claymores for the 2002 NFL Europe season.

The 26-year-old Dreisbach joined the Oakland Raiders in 1999 as an undrafted rookie free agent.

He played in two pre-season games before breaking his leg and missing the entire season.

He was placed on injured reserve in 2000 with a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder and was released by the Raiders in April of 2001.

He was then signed to the Buffalo Bills practice squad on November 14.

As a four-year letterman at Michigan, Dreisbach passed for 2,920 yards and 15 touchdowns in 28 games -- 11 starts.
