Texans will train B.J. Daniels as a quarterback and a wide receiver in practice this week.

Signed off the Seahawks' practice squad Monday, Daniels has been playing as primarily a wide receiver this season, but he could be asked to backup Brandon Weeden if Brian Hoyer (concussion) cannot get cleared. Hoyer would be worth streaming consideration against a Titans defense which has quit the last two weeks, but the offense will likely struggle if Weeden or especially Daniels are forced into action.

Texans signed gadget player B.J. Daniels off the Seahawks' practice squad.

A quarterback turned mostly receiver, Daniels made his first six NFL appearances for the Seahawks earlier this season. With Brian Hoyer (concussion) out indefinitely, it's possible Daniels will actually back up Brandon Weeden for Week 16. It's hard to fathom a team having a worse quarterback situation. Daniels might also be an option for Bill O'Brien's beloved Wildcat runs.

Seahawks signed WR B.J. Daniels from their practice squad.

The former college quarterback has been bouncing back and forth between the practice squad and the active roster all season. In four games, he's logged one catch for 12 yards.

Seahawks waived WR/QB B.J. Daniels and RB Rod Smith.

A gadget player who's been bouncing around the NFC West since 2013, Daniels is just about out of chances in the big leagues. The release of Smith may be a good sign for Marshawn Lynch's (hamstring, calf) Week 6 availability.

Seahawks declared WR B.J. Daniels, CB Tharold Simon, FB Will Tukuafu, LB Michael Morgan, OG Mark Glowinski, G/C Kristjan Sokoli, and DT David King inactive for Week 1 against the Rams.

Daniels brings up the rear of the Seahawks' receiver depth chart. Simon is battling a toe injury, while Morgan has a hamstring issue.

B.J. Daniels is working "primarily" as a receiver for the Seahawks.

From the second he was picked by the 49ers in 2013, it was apparent Daniels would never be an NFL quarterback. He'll try to win his long-shot bid for a spot on the Seahawks' 53-man roster as a wideout and special teamer.

Seahawks signed QB B.J. Daniels to a reserve/future contract.

Daniels was not amongst the Seahawks' initial wave of futures signings on Wednesday. The No. 217 pick of last spring's draft, Daniels does not have NFL-level passing ability. He'll compete for a spot on the 53-man roster as a gadget player/special teamer.

Seahawks waived QB B.J. Daniels.

Daniels had been serving as Seattle's No. 3 quarterback since Week 4. The move clears a spot for LT Russell Okung (foot) to return from injured reserve.

Seahawks claimed QB B.J. Daniels off waivers from the 49ers.

Daniels was waived on Tuesday after spending the first four weeks on the 49ers' active roster. He was a seventh-round pick in April and will now serve as Seattle's No. 3 quarterback. The Seahawks are likely just pulling him in for intel on the division rival Niners. Daniels won't be active on game days. The 49ers had planned to stash Daniels on the practice squad Wednesday.

49ers waived QB B.J. Daniels.

It's surprising the passing-deficient rookie made it this long on the active roster. The 49ers are reportedly signing John Skelton as their new No. 3 quarterback behind Colin Kaepernick and Colt McCoy. They will presumably try to stash Daniels on the practice squad. He was a seventh-round pick in April's draft.

Coach Jim Harbaugh announced rookie QB B.J. Daniels' practice reps will be increased this week so he's on equal footing with Colt McCoy and Scott Tolzien.

In other words, Daniels is being given a legitimate chance to win primary backup duties behind Colin Kaepernick. Although Daniels took two sacks in Friday's preseason game against the Chiefs, he completed 67 percent of his nine pass attempts and threw a 14-yard TD strike to Chuck Jacobs. Under QB mastermind Harbaugh, Daniels is now worth grabbing in all deep Dynasty leagues.

CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco believes seventh-round QB B.J. Daniels has a "legitimate chance" to open the season as the 49ers' No. 2 quarterback.

Daniels has the biggest arm of the 49ers' backups, and he's done nothing to disappoint this summer. The dual-threat quarterback didn't play in the preseason opener, but completed 6-of-9 passes for 72 yards and a touchdown in Friday night's game. He also ran for 13 yards on four rushes. Colt McCoy and Scott Tolzien have combined to throw three interceptions and no scores.
Sun, Aug 18, 2013 12:46:00 PM

CSN Bay Area believes rookie 49ers QB B.J. Daniels "might have an edge over" Scott Tolzien for No. 3 duties because of his versatility.

Daniels is not an NFL-level passer, but has proficient running ability and can contribute on special teams. A third-year undrafted free agent, Tolzien has never attempted a regular-season pass.
Tue, Jul 16, 2013 01:56:00 PM

Seventh-round QB B.J. Daniels took snaps at running back and fielded punts at 49ers rookie minicamp.

The 49ers are still listing Daniels as a quarterback, but he's well aware his passing "ability" isn't going to earn him a roster spot. "Whatever's asked of me to do, that's what I'm going to do," Daniels said. Unsigned rookie QB Collin Klein would be wise to adopt that credo. Proving he can do more than hold a clipboard at the NFL level could give Daniels a leg up on Scott Tolzien for No. 3 duties.
