Daniel, 30, served as the primary backup to Brees from 2010-12 before joining the Kansas City Chiefs as a backup for Alex Smith from 2013-15.

Daniel signed a three-year, $21 million contract -- with $12 million guaranteed -- with the Philadelphia Eagles last season. The Eagles released Daniel at his own request on March 13 in a move that freed up $6 million of available cap space. He played in just one game in 2016, completing his only pass for 16 yards.

For his career, Daniel has completed 51 of his 78 career pass attempts for 480 yards with one touchdown and an interception.
