ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure has B.J. Daniels penciled in as the No. 3 running back.
In his initial 53-man roster projection, McClure leaves Terron Ward and rookie Brian Hill off the team in favor of Daniels. That would be a stunning turn of events to rely solely on Daniels, a converted quarterback, as the lone backup to the two-headed duo of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, especially considering Coleman's injury history. Atlanta would certainly keep one back on the taxi squad. Jul 21 - 12:25 PM

Date:

Falcons QB/WR B.J. Daniels is now practicing at running back.

Daniels has bounced around teams since being drafted in 2013 by the 49ers. Daniels has been mostly used as a gadget player in wildcat formations, but coach Dan Quinn described Daniels as a running back. Daniels is a longshot for a roster spot on a loaded Falcons RB depth chart.
Jun 15 - 1:17 PM

Bears waived QB/WR B.J. Daniels.

Daniels' world tour continues. Already this offseason he's been cut by the Texans, Giants and now the Bears. The quarterback/receiver hybrid will probably end up on someone's practice squad.

Giants signed QB B.J. Daniels.

Daniels was cut by the Texans last month. He's bounced between quarterback and receiver with the Seahawks, 49ers, and Texans in recent seasons. Daniels will very likely be nothing more than a camp body for the G-Men.

Texans waived QB B.J. Daniels.

The gadget player/wildcatter was signed off the practice squad last December. Daniels has played only a handful of regular season snaps since being the No. 237 overall pick of the 2013 draft.

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.
Tue, Nov 24, 2015 06:28:00 PM

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.
Tue, Oct 13, 2015 05:10:00 PM

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.
Tue, Jun 2, 2015 05:22:00 PM

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.
Thu, Feb 6, 2014 05:08:00 PM

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.
Sat, Nov 16, 2013 05:00:00 PM

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.
Wed, Oct 2, 2013 04:34:00 PM

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.
