Broncos Sign Veteran TE Owen Daniels

A move that many saw coming from miles away, the minute Gary Kubiak was hired in Denver it became the front-runner to sign TE Owen Daniels, who has never not been under the tutelage of Kubiak.

Daniels is entering his 10th NFL season, and has had his share of injury issues, but he’s a crafty receiver and as a former quarterback, knows how to find soft spots in coverage and make himself available. He will be a fantastic fit in the Broncos’ offense for obvious reasons, and he’ll quickly become one of Peyton Manning’s best friends after spending years as his rival in Houston.

Daniels isn’t Julius Thomas athletically, but the Broncos got him for a fraction of the price and he is going to be able to help the transition to the new offense. Pencil him in as the starting tight end along with Virgil Green, and if healthy, Daniels could put up big numbers with the Broncos as a number three or four option in the offense.
