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.
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.
