Eagles pluck Steven Daniels off waivers

Linebacker Steven Daniels spent his rookie season on injured reserve and he’ll have to impress a new team if he’s going to make it on the field in his second season.

Daniels was waived by the Redskins earlier this week and will be staying in the NFC East after being claimed by the Eagles on Wednesday.

Daniels was a seventh-round pick last year and saw his season come to an end when he suffered a torn labrum in August. He had 82 tackles, 16 tackles for loss, six sacks and an interception during his final year at Boston College.

Mychal Kendricks, Jordan Hicks and Nigel Bradham are on track to start at linebacker for the Eagles, which would leave Daniels to compete for a backup job along with Kamu Grugier-Hill, Najee Goode, Joe Walker and fifth-round pick Nathan Gerry.

    Possibly a good “low risk..high reward ” pickup

    Think Kendricks is getting cut, always nicked up with little injuries. When he is on the field, his play is inconsistent at best. Def. not worth the contract he got.

    Dang that’s good LB depth. Maybe Kendricks will be getting pushed out.

    Sounds like a camp body to me, with an outside chance to push some guys (Kendircis).
