Former Eagles backup Chase Daniel will be in town on Monday to meet with members of the organization, sources confirmed to Newsday. He spent the 2010-2012 seasons with the Saints, attempting nine total passes as a backup to Drew Brees, and since then Daniel has been a very highly-paid, still very little-used backup with the Kansas City Chiefs (2013-2015) and the Eagles (2016). On the flip side, the Jets have a wide open competition for their starting role with unproven players like Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty on the roster.
At age 30, Daniel is still looking for his first opportunity as an National Football League starter.
Drake's More Life Offers Insights Into His Life
The Toronto rapper makes a reference to his former rumored love on the opening track of his long-awaited More Life , "Free Smoke". Of course, he finally did release it as promised, and stans are already treating every word of " More Life " like it's gospel.
Relying on him as a starter would be a risk. With two career regular season starts (both with the Chiefs) and 78 career pass attempts (65.4 percent completion rate), it's hard to judge what Daniel can do one way or another with any confidence. He's regarded as an average quarterback in just about every way, from size to arm strength and accuracy.
The upside is that he has a background in the West Coast offense, which the Jets likely will run under new coordinator John Morton. Even though the meeting went well, McCown remains a free agent and nothing seems imminent. The Jets have also reportedly shown some level of interest in current free agents Jay Cutler and Robert Griffin III. The Jets could also pick a quarterback - perhaps Mitchell Trubisky or Deshaun Watson, in next month's draft.
