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.
