Chase Daniel is slated to join the Philadelphia Eagles , NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. His deal with the team is reportedly for three years.
While the Eagles have already elected to pay up in order to retain the services of starting QB Sam Bradford, Daniel now joins the team's backup mix, with the deal reuniting him with new Philadelphia coach Doug Pederson, who worked with Daniel while the two were both with the Chiefs. Daniel thus appears to be an injury away from a shot to helm the Eagles offense, but given Bradford's injury history, it's understandable that Pederson was interested in securing some trusted QB insurance.
Chase Daniel will likely test the free agent market this offseason in hopes of competing for a starting role for another team, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports. "We've had [Daniel] here for three years and I think Chase is a very competitive player. I think we're very lucky to have him as our No. 2 quarterback...At the right price I would try to retain him... I'm also a realist to know that at the certain point if he's getting starter's money I'm not going to be able to retain him," said general manager John Dorsey on Thursday.
Daniel, who has served as the Kansas City Chiefs ' backup for the past two seasons, recently received some praise from his former offensive coordinator and current Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, who said that the Missouri product could be a starter. He has been a career backup with the Saints and Chiefs, but after seven seasons in the league it appears he wants his shot to be a starter at this level. He figures to garner interest during the free agent period from teams with unsettled quarterback situations.
