Add another chapter to the tradition of “What’s your deal?”
In a move that you could see coming down the tracks, the Seahawks have claimed quarterback B.J. Daniels off waivers from the 49ers, snatching a player their division rivals had hoped to put on their practice squad if he had cleared.
The two teams seem to love tweaking each other and signing each other’s castoffs, and this just adds another verse. Signing guys at other positions is part of the gamesmanship, but quarterbacks have a different level of responsibility, so they become more valuable.
The Seahawks were only carrying two quarterbacks (Russell Wilson and Tarvaris Jackson), so there’s plenty of room to stash him at the bottom of the 53, and wait for the 49ers to sign whomever they happen to cut.
UPDATE 10:53 p.m. ET: The Seahawks placed lineabcker John Lotulelei on waivers to make room for Daniels on their roster.
