After being drafted by Detroit in the sixth round of the draft in April, Kaaya was waived three times by two different teams before ultimately joining the Lions' practice squad in late October. The Colts evidently recognized some potential in the 22-year-old, who will get a look during their final week of practice of the season. Indianapolis could view Kaaya as a potential backup candidate in 2018 with Scott Tolzien set to become an unrestricted free agent.... See More ... See Less

Lions' Brad Kaaya: Claimed by Lions
The Lions claimed Kaaya off waivers Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
The Panthers claimed Kaaya off waivers after the Lions included the Miami product as part of their final roster cuts ahead of Week 1. However, the Lions might have regretted that decision to let him loose, considering they pounced on the opportunity to bring him back after Carolina parted ways with him Tuesday. Now back with the team that drafted him this spring, Kaaya will serve as the No. 3 signal caller behind a banged-up Matthew Stafford and current backup Jake Rudock.... See More ... See Less

Kaaya was claimed by the Panthers off waivers Sunday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.

Lions' Brad Kaaya: Showing improvement
Kaaya has shown improvement in directing the Lions offense, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. "Where I am now compared to OTAs, I'd say is night and day," Kaaya said.
Though Kaaya seemingly had a hard time directing the offense at first, the rookie seems to be taking steps in the right direction. In fact, head coach Jim Caldwell recently praised Kaaya's ability to "digest and regurgitate" a "voluminous" playbook. Unfortunately, the Lions probably won't carry more than two quarterbacks into the regular season, so he still seems destined for the practice squad.... See More ... See Less
Lions' Brad Kaaya: Struggling in training camp
Kaaya has a "zero percent chance" to beat out Jake Rudock for the Lions' backup QB job, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
