Daniels was waived by the Giants on Friday, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports. Daniels signed on with the Giants in early May, hoping to secure a third-string spot behind Eli Manning and Ryan Nassib on the depth chart. With training camp approaching, the Giants decided to instead sign 24-year-old Logan Thomas, leaving Daniels as the odd man out.
Daniels has signed with the Giants, NJ.com reports. Daniels' signing with New York comes after he recently completed a tryout for the team. The Giants carried only starter Eli Manning and backup Ryan Nassib at quarterback last season, and with Nassib entering the final year of his rookie deal, Daniels will provide further competition at the position this term.
The Texans have released Daniels, the Houston Chronicle reports. Following the team's release of Brian Hoyer, the Texans now currently roster Brock Osweiler, Tom Savage and Brandon Weeden at the QB position.
Daniels completed 1-of-2 passes for seven yards and rushed six times for six yards in Sunday's win over the Titans. Daniels was signed last week and had a crash course in the offense. He mostly ran zone-read stuff and the Titans were prepared for it, but he could be utilized similarly in Week 17 against the Jaguars.
Daniels participated in his first practice with the Texans on Wednesday, the Houston Chronicle reports. Daniels, who was converted to a slot receiver and return man during his time with Seattle, is training at both wide receiver and quarterback with Houston but his main focus is at QB. If Brian Hoyer is not cleared from the NFL's concussion protocol this week, Daniels will be the top backup to Brandon Weeden in Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans.
