Daniels was handed a four-game suspension by the NFL on Monday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports. The exact details surrounding Daniels' suspension are currently unknown, but the running back hasn't been on an NFL roster since he was waived with an injury settlement by the Buccaneers in mid-August.
Daniels (groin) was waived with an injury settlement Tuesday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Daniels is nursing a groin injury that prevented him from playing in the Falcons' preseason opener last Thursday. He's now free to sign with another team.
Daniels (groin) will not play against Miami on Thursday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Daniels only played in eight games last season for both Houston and Seattle, and his sample size is small: two receptions on two targets for 18 yards and zero touchdowns. Thursday was supposed to be a time to show he can make it as a depth receiver and specialist, but that will have to wait for now.
Daniels signed a reserve/future contract with the Falcons on Tuesday, Kelsey Conway of the team's official site reports. Daniels has bounced around the league since being selected in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft, spending time with the 49ers, Seahawks, Texans, Giants, and now Falcons. Originally a quarterback, Daniels has been transitioning to wide receiver/return specialist over the past few seasons. His diverse skill set could help him obtain a spot on Atlanta's 53-man roster next season.
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.
