B.J. Daniels has spent this season bouncing between the Seahawks practice squad and their active roster, but it looks like he won’t be ending the year with the organization.

According to multiple reports, the Texans have signed Daniels off of Seattle’s practice squad as they try to shore up the quarterback position in the wake of T.J. Yates tearing his ACL in Sunday’s victory over the Colts. Per Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans contacted Daniels on Sunday night and the Seahawks were unhappy about losing him.

Daniels has spent time as both a quarterback and wide receiver since entering the NFL, but was strictly a quarterback in college at South Florida. He’ll slot in behind Brandon Weeden, who replaced Yates on Sunday, as long as Brian Hoyer remains in the concussion protocol and out of the lineup.

Daniels has seen action in six games this season, catching two passes for 18 yards and returning one punt for seven yards.

  1. Practice squad QB’s tend to be fan favorites. It’s nice to see them play in actual games and everyone knows who they are with offseason public practices. It’s great to see Daniels get this opportunity, I wish him the best, sad to see him go though. Best of luck B.J!

  2. Good for him. He’s smart, he’s versatile and he works his butt off. Good luck B.J. I hope you do well!

  3. Good for him. Hopefully he gets a chance to actually play as QB in a real game this year and show what he can do. Have to give him a lot of credit for willing to play WR when asked and hanging in there. T-Jack may not hang around much longer as the backup but once the Hawks moved Daniels to WR his odds of really having a role with the team went down pretty quickly.

  4. What Bill O’ and the Texans need to do IMMEDIATELY is to hire a computer training company to create a self-paced Texans Offensive training on-line program that will train new QB’s in as few as 24 hours to the WHOLE COMPLICATED MESS of offensive plays that the team runs !
    This way, we can have 5 0r ten back-up QB’s at any time READY and WAITING on OUR Practice Squad at ALL times !
    Give extra salary to players already on the roster, but seldom used if THEY VOLUNTARILY take the course (and “pass” it) !
    How cool it would be to see a 320 lb. otherwise linebacker serving as quarterback for the Texans.
    Isn’t that what Rothlisberger weighs in at ?
