David Blough was a quarterback at Purdue from 2015-18. During his senior season, Blough completed 66 percent of his passes for 3,705 yards, 25 TD and 10 INT.

He went undrafted in the 2019 NFL Draft. He signed with the Cleveland Browns but then was traded to the Detroit Lions involving seventh round picks.

Blough finished 22-of-38 for 280 yards, 2 TD and one INT. The Lions lost 24-20.

It doesn’t seem as though this is the last we’ll see of Blough. Even if Lions starting QB Matthew Stafford comes back from injury next week and Blough doesn’t start, he impressed. Some team — if not the Lions — will give him a chance in the future.

We learned that much this Thanksgiving.
