The Saints actually brought Daniel in a for visit a few weeks ago and later met with the Jets, but left New York without an agreement.
Daniel returns to where his NFL career began and will give New Orleans a much better backup option next season.
It will be interesting to see if the Saints also target a quarterback in this year’s draft, which the team has made clear is a strong possibility.
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. However, the Eagles released Daniel a few weeks ago in a move that freed up $6 million of available cap space.
In 2016, Daniel appeared in one game for the Eagles and completed one pass for 16 yards.
