Redskins visit up next for Owen Daniels

Tight end Owen Daniels visited with the Packers this week, but his chances of landing in Green Bay took a hit when the team re-signed Andrew Quarless.

Daniels is moving on to a meeting with the Redskins, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN.com. It’s the second reported visit for Daniels since he was dropped by the Texans after eight seasons in Houston.

The Redskins have Jordan Reed set for the starting tight end spot, but Fred Davis is gone and Daniels’ arrival would allow the team the option of going with two tight ends with good receiving skills at the same time. Those skills don’t really overlap as Reed’s more athletic than Daniels, but Daniels would be a reliable target on third downs for Robert Griffin III.

Washington has added wide receiver Andre Roberts to the offense and they re-signed Santana Moss as they hope to move the offense back in the direction it was heading in 2012. We’ll likely find out soon if Daniels is part of that effort.

    Sorry, Packer fans. Your vision of Daniels/Quarless being the next Gronk/Hernandez sans murder charges will not come to fruition.

    Hate to be that guy… But he never played in Oakland… On a side note. I still think he can help a team out. He has just a good of chance as playing at GB then at Wash. If not a better chance even.

    No wonder the Texans aren’t popular…they are apparently based in Oakland.

    The Greenbay Redskins would love to have Owen Manning

    Has he actually left Green Bay yet? Pretty sure he was visiting today. I get that the Redskins are next on his dance card, but let’s not say he’s moved on just yet. No report of that.

    Baltimore is just a short ride up the B/W Parkway Owen, the Ravens are the best landing spot for you!! You can reunite with Gary Kubiak & the explosive offense he is installing in Bmore!

    He’s making a quick stop to the Redskins to take note of what a horrible franchise looks like. Then he’s going to come up to Baltimore to see what 1st Class looks like and settle for veteran minimum.

    Hail to the Failskins! #HTTF

    Funny when people TRY to be a smartass and fail. Eagles? Are like 7 UP not just in color but in catch phrase “never had it never will”. Love to keep eagles in nfc east, always good to have a failchise in your division. One of original teams of nfl, amd still never won SB. Dont get me started on baltimore raisins. Or baltimore browns…whatever they are called. Still though, way better then eagles. Raven fans are pretty cool. I been to stadium,.nice.
