Reports: Eagles to sign QB Chase Daniel to multi-year contract

Wednesday March 9th, 2016

Backup Chiefs quarterback Chase Daniel will sign a multi-year contract with the Eagles, according to multiple reports. ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Adam Caplan were first to report the deal.

The deal reunites Daniel with Doug Pederson, his offensive coordinator with the Chiefs and now the Eagles’ head coach. Last month, Pederson told the Kansas City Star that he believed Daniel could be a starting NFL quarterback. 

Daniel, 29, was signed by the Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2009 and played four seasons in New Orleans before signing with the Chiefs in 2013. He started two games over the last three seasons. 

Incumbent starter Sam Bradford signed a two-year deal with the Eagles last week.
