Daniels, 22, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Iowa back in May of last year. He was set to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract when the Patriots cut him loose coming out of the preseason.
Daniels had a brief stint with the Chargers on their practice squad before the Redskins added him to their taxi squad and called him up soon after.
In 2017, Daniels appeared in four games and rushed for 14 yards on three carries (4.7 YPC) and no touchdowns or receptions.
During his college career at Iowa, Daniels rushed for 1,895 yards on 409 carries (4.6 YPC) to go along with 10 receptions for 81 yards receiving and 19 total touchdowns over the course of 37 games.
Judd, 25, originally signed a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of Ole Miss back in May of last year. He was waived with an injury designation at the start of the regular season and eventually cut loose with a settlement a month later.
The Jets signed Judd to their practice squad in October before calling him up towards the end of the season. They wound up waiving him in May and signed on with the Packers earlier this month.
