While Owen Daniels is now a member of the Baltimore Ravens, some interesting news leaked on Monday afternoon suggesting that Daniels visited with the New England Patriots before signing with the Ravens.
"Prior to tight end Owen Daniels signing with the Baltimore Ravens last week, he took a free-agent visit to the New England Patriots.This information comes to us from ESPN.com NFL Nation Houston Texans reporter Tania Ganguli, who caught up with Daniels at a charity golf tournament Monday. Daniels, of course, was a longtime Houston Texan (2006-2013)."
The Patriots of course already have Rob Gronkowski at tight end, but the addition of Daniels would have likely been for more than just insurance purpose as the Patriots currently are void of any talent at the ‘move’ tight end position (Aaron Hernandez‘s old spot).
Daniels would have likely been an excellent addition at the move position, especially given the weapons on the Patriots offense, but it wasn’t meant to be as he ended up signing with the Baltimore Ravens instead.
In addition to the Ravens and Patriots, Daniels also visited the Green Bay Packers and Washington Redskins.
