Broncos released TE Owen Daniels.
The move saves the Broncos $2.5 million against the cap. This was a no-brainer move. Daniels just wrapped up his age-33 season and has looked close to the end of the line much of the past couple seasons. It's an especially bad sign for Daniels' NFL future that the only head coach he's ever known -- Gary Kubiak -- has now released him. After winning the Super Bowl, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Daniels hang 'em up and call it a career. Tue, Mar 8, 2016 01:34:00 PM

Broncos TE Owen Daniels is considering retirement.

"Of course. That's definitely an option," he said. "But I'm a man of my word, I signed a three-year deal, so I'd like to keep playing." 33-year-old Daniels went 46-517-3 on 77 targets in his age-33 season. He's owed $3.5 million for the 2016 campaign, including a $500,000 roster bonus that's due in March.

Owen Daniels caught 1-of-2 targets for 18 yards in the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 win over the Panthers.

Daniels' catch occurred on the game's first snap from scrimmage, sprinting across the seam for a gain of 18. Although Daniels still has reliable hands, his playmaking ability has understandably evaporated late in his career. The Broncos will have to decide whether 33-year-old Daniels is worth his $3.5 million scheduled in salary and bonuses. He'll turn 34 next November.
Sun, Feb 7, 2016 10:38:00 PM

Owen Daniels caught 2-of-3 targets for 33 yards and two touchdowns in the Broncos' AFC Championship Game win over the Patriots.

Daniels' scores were the Broncos' only touchdowns, and both came within the game's first 17 minutes. Daniels was left all alone on TD No. 1, but whipped Jamie Collins on score No. 2. Daniels is a bit of a security blanket for Peyton Manning, but could easily go catchless in Super Bowl 50.
Sun, Jan 24, 2016 07:59:00 PM

Owen Daniels (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Patriots.

Daniels was a full participant at practice this week and should be fine for Sunday. He caught 5-of-6 passes for 48 yards against New England in Week 12.
Fri, Jan 22, 2016 03:45:00 PM

Owen Daniels caught 2-of-3 targets for ten yards in the Broncos' Divisional Round win over the Steelers.

Daniels played ahead of Virgil Green and Vernon Davis again, but wasn't a big part of the Broncos' passing offense. Daniels has failed to clear 20 receiving yards in back-to-back games.
Sun, Jan 17, 2016 08:05:00 PM

Owen Daniels caught his only target for 15 yards in the Broncos' Week 17 win over the Chargers.

He was still targeted more times than Vernon Davis, who seems to have been banished from the offense. Daniels and Virgil Green have handled tight end duties the past two weeks and should continue to do so in the playoffs unless Davis is able to learn the playbook over the next two weeks.
Mon, Jan 4, 2016 01:50:00 AM

Owen Daniels caught 5-of-7 targets for 70 yards in the Broncos' Week 16 win over the Bengals on Monday night.

After Vernon Davis had a drop-filled Week 15, Daniels reemerged as the Broncos' clear-cut No. 1 tight end this week. He played 43-of-67 snaps. Virgil Green was in on 23 plays, and Davis played just five snaps. Daniels did nothing before halftime, but he came out of the locker room and made some tough, gutsy catches over the middle. His seven targets were second only to Demaryius Thomas' 12. Daniels took a booming hit from FS Reggie Nelson in the fourth quarter while attempting to reel in a ball near the goal line. He again sits atop the depth chart.
Tue, Dec 29, 2015 12:26:00 AM

Owen Daniels caught 2-of-5 targets for 14 yards in the Broncos' Week 15 loss to the Steelers.

Vernon Davis isn't playing well, but has eroded what little upside Daniels once had. He'll be off the radar for Weeks 16 and 17.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 08:42:00 PM

Owen Daniels caught 3-of-4 targets for 43 yards in the Broncos' Week 14 loss to the Raiders.

Daniels' big play occurred in the second half on a wide-open seam ball that gained 32 yards. Otherwise, Daniels was quiet in a game where Vernon Davis (7-74) reemerged as the Broncos' primary tight end. Even against a Steelers defense that struggles to stop tight ends, Daniels will be a weak TE2 option in Week 15.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 07:41:00 PM

Owen Daniels (knee) remained limited on Thursday.

Daniels will be fine for Sunday's game. The question is Vernon Davis' (concussion) health. Davis resumed practicing on Thursday. Daniels would be a legit TE2 against the Raiders' soft defense were Davis to sit.
Thu, Dec 10, 2015 05:57:00 PM

Owen Daniels secured 2-of-3 targets for 13 yards in the Broncos' Week 13 win over the Chargers.

Daniels was quiet on a day where Brock Osweiler needed only 16 completions to hold off the non-competitive Chargers. This was despite Vernon Davis (concussion) leaving early and not returning. In Week 14, Daniels will take on a Raiders defense against which he goose egged on five targets earlier this year.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 07:28:00 PM

Owen Daniels (knee) is probable for Week 13 against the Chargers.

There was some concern over Daniels’s status after he missed Thursday’s practice. He returned in full on Friday and will be fine for his normal snaps. Daniels is more involved under Brock Osweiler, but has only one touchdown since Week 5.
Sat, Dec 5, 2015 04:08:00 PM

Owen Daniels (knee) missed Thursday's practice.

It's a mild concern, as Daniels was limited on Wednesday. The Broncos are still likely just managing their veteran tight end's reps. We expect him to suit up against the Chargers.
Thu, Dec 3, 2015 06:06:00 PM

Owen Daniels caught 5-of-6 targets for 58 yards in Week 12.

Daniels saw more targets than Vernon Davis despite playing fewer snaps. He's been held out of the end-zone in three straight games. Daniels will remain a low-upside TE2 in Week 13 against the Chargers.
