REPORT: Lions to sign QB Chase Daniel

According to Adam Schefter, the Detroit Lions have agreed to a contract with former Chicago Bears free agent quarterback Chase Daniel.

The deal is reportedly a three-year, $13.05 million contract that includes a voidable clause.

The 33 year old signal-caller is a solid veteran who has widely been considered one of the better backup quarterbacks in the NFL. He only has five career starts with three coming in the last two years — one in a victory against the Lions on Thanksgiving day.

As an undrafted free agent in 2009 out of Missouri, Daniel has been somewhat of a journeyman.

  • Washington Redskins (2009)*
  • New Orleans Saints (2009–2012)
  • Kansas City Chiefs (2013–2015)
  • Philadelphia Eagles (2016)
  • New Orleans Saints (2017)
  • Chicago Bears (2018–2019)

In his career, he has a 68.3 passing percentage for 1,430 yards, a 87.5 passer rating, and a 7/5 TD to interception ratio. Given the recent injury history with starter Matthew Stafford, Daniel provides a decent fallback option.
