Chase Daniel to join Philadelphia Eagles as backup to Sam Bradford


There’s been no shortage of headlines today when it comes to the Philadelphia Eagles, and they continue to emerge. According to Ian Rapoport, the Eagles have signed Chase Daniel from the Kansas City Chiefs.

Obviously it’s been widely known for a while that Doug Pederson has been hot on the 27-year old backup since first being announced as Head Coach for the Philadelphia Eagles so the move should really come as no surprise. Daniel is reported to have signed a three year deal with the birds and left a heartfelt note to the Chiefs on his twitter.

In his three years with the Chiefs, Daniel started just two games and ended with 43/68 passes complete for one touchdown and one interception. After spurts with the Redskins and the Saints before playing under Andy Reid, Daniel will now follow his old Offensive Coordinator to Philadelphia.

This also means that the likelihood of the Eagles cutting Mark Sanchez has sky rocketed considering the Eagles would currently have four Quarterbacks on the roster.

Per, Pederson had this to say about the long term backup:

“I think Chase, given an opportunity, yes, I think he can be (a starting quarterback),” Pederson told reporters on Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine. “People that have worked with him for the last three years know that he has an opportunity there and hopefully he gets his chance.”


Details of the deal will be published as soon as they emerge.
