  • Rapoport adds that Daniel remains someone to watch in a potential trade moving forward.
  • Jeff McLane mentions the Bears as a potential option for Daniel while Eliot Shorr-Parks wonders if the Jets could have interest in him.

Daniel, 30, originally signed on with the Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Missouri back in 2010. He spent three years in New Orleans before signing on with the Chiefs in 2013.

After another three years in Kansas City, Daniels signed a three-year, $21 million contract that included $12 million guaranteed with the Eagles last year. He stands to make base salaries of $7 million for the next two years.

According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Daniel would free up $6 million of available cap space while creating $2 million in dead money.

In 2016, Daniel appeared in one game for the Eagles and completed one pass for 16 yards.
