Seahawks bring back quarterback B.J. Daniels

Former 49ers quarterback B.J. Daniels insisted this offseason that the Seahawks interest in him was genuine, and not just a way to stick it to the team that hoped to sneak him through waivers and onto the practice squad.

Now he has proof.

Per the league’s transaction wire, the Seahawks signed Daniels Thursday.

He spent a month and a half with them after they claimed him off waivers from the 49ers, but was cut and added to the practice squad when they needed a roster spot to activate injured tackle Russell Okung in mid-November.

While he might not be much more than a project, the former seventh-rounder is at least familiar enough (with both team) to be of service in the offseason, to see if he develops into something more.
