Daniels was released by the Seahawks on Tuesday. Daniels suited up for four games this season, but he registered just one reception, and was deemed expendable in order to open up a roster spot for running back Bryce Brown. Daniels will be a candidate for the Seahawks' practice squad if he clears waivers.
The Seahawks officially list B.J. Daniels as a quarterback. But coach Pete Carroll thinks Daniels is dynamic enough to be used all over the field, including wide receiver and returner, reports The Seattle Times. "We are really looking forward to B.J. taking a shot and competing at that, and also catching some footballs for us," Carroll said. "He's a very multitalented guy who could help us at quarterback, as well. He is a kid we are excited about. He's really tough and strong — weighs 220 pounds — and has great quicks and all of that. So he's preparing to do that all season." Daniels was signed near the end of the regular season by Seattle in 2014 and did not see any action at quarterback.
The Seahawks have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's Super Bowl: B.J. Daniels, Marcus Burley, Patrick Lewis, Keavon Milton, David King, Garry Gilliam and Kevin Norwood, the team announced. Gilliam caught a fake field goal touchdown during the NFC Championship Game for Seattle. The game is currently pick'em between Seattle and New England.
The Seahawks announced the following players as inactive for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Packers: quarterback B.J. Daniels, safety Jeron Johnson, cornerback Marcus Burley, tight end Keavon Milton, tackle Justin Britt, defensive lineman David King and tight end Cooper Helfet. Johnson was the only inactive player listed on Seattle's injury report heading into the game. Seattle is an 8-point favorite.
The Seahawks have added quarterback B.J. Daniels to the active roster from the practice squad to replace the injured Paul Richardson for the NFC Championship game against the Packers. Coach Pete Carroll said Daniels could be used on special teams, as a running back or as a wide receiver. He has yet to play a down at quarterback in his professional career.
