Daniel spent 2009-12 in New Orleans, primarily acting as Drew Brees‘ backup.
Daniel reportedly asked for his release from the Eagles this offseason, just one year into a deal that saw him become one of the highest-paid backups in the league.
The 30-year-old’s familiarity with the Saints’ offense means he could step back into his role as Brees’ substitute rather seamlessly. However, it would mean Daniel wouldn’t get to compete for a starting job, which was believed to be his motivation for joining the Eagles before they drafted Carson Wentz.
