The Saints have discussed publicly the desire to find long-term help at quarterback with the 38-year-old Brees on the back end of his career. Daniel spent 2016 as a backup with the Philadelphia Eagles behind rookie pick Carson Wentz. He left to join the Kansas City Chiefs, where he spent three years and started two games.

New Orleans now has veteran Luke McCown and third year pro Garrett Grayson as backup QBs to Drew Brees. Originally Daniel was signed by the Redskins but cut in training camp and the Saints added him to the roster. If the Saints were to sign him to a $1 million deal, for example, Philadelphia would owe him $4 million. As a starter, Daniel's record is 1-1 and his stats are 37-for-57 with 357 yards passing and one touchdown, along with 73 yards rushing.

Luke McCown is likely a candidate to be released at this point, given that he's fallen to the No. 3 slot for the Saints.
