Got a text from the Texans stating he is replacing Antonio Gates and it will be posted on the main website shortly.

One more Texan we get to see ball again this year. Congrats OD!

The NFL announced today that Texans tight end Owen Daniels will make his first-career Pro Bowl appearance after San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates pulled out of the game due to injury.

“It’s really exciting,” Daniels said. “I can’t wipe the smile off my face right now, honestly. It’s going to be cool to go out there and play with all the best players in the league.”

Daniels ranked second in the AFC among tight ends in receptions (70) and receiving yards (862) this season, trailing only the Kansas City Chiefs’ Tony Gonzalez in both categories.

Houston Texans tight end Owen Daniels did his part, catching 70 passes for 862 yards before becoming a restricted free agent this offseason. But given the economy, an unsettled labor situation and the possibility of an uncapped year in 2010, it will be interesting to see how NFL teams spend money across the next few months.

Daniels, the former Naperville Central quarterback, tells HoustonTexans.com that he would like to remain in Texas.

"I'd love to be here for a long time," Daniels said. "That's not completely up to me, but I'd definitely love to stay in Houston. I really like our team, I like our coaches, I like the guys and I think we're going in the right direction."

PLEASE let Slaton get in.

Still the only team to have 3 players from the 06 draft class on the PB roster.

Not bad.

Slatons best chance right now is Chris Johnsons high ankle sprain.

Good Deal !
I heard OD on 1560 a few weeks ago saying he regretted that he won't get a chance to enjoy the PB experience, the whole culture of it being in Hawaii since this was going to be the last year it would be held in there. He said everything would be different if the PB-week was stateside (which it will be in the furture). So it's great that he'll get to make that one last, final trip to
Hawaii with the rest of the NFL PBowlers.

Not all parts of the state are having such a good weather day. We got about a third of an inch of sleet/ice last night. It made for a wonderful commute here in the DFW, and the temp just recently cracked 32.

Added benefit of going to PB is that our young guys get to meet and learn from the best of the best.

Being the youngest team in the NFL we need to aquire this knownledge somehow. PB, experienced coaches and bringing guys in are the only ways.

The Texans said they now rank as the only team in the league with three players from the 2006 draft class -- their first with Gary Kubiak as coach -- heading to the Pro Bowl.

Very nice, lets repeat in 09. Congrats OD you deserve it!

So i understand that Charley Asserly made the mario pick...but what about the rest of that draft? Smithiak?

Kubiak has given credit to Casserly for the Owen Daniels pick before. He said after the 1st day was over Charley stayed in their ear and kept raving about a TE out of Wisconsin. 1st pick of Day 2, Texans select Owen Daniels and the rest is history.

I choose to believe that all of the picks for that draft were told to Kubiak by Jesus himself, because Jesus is all about helping out the little guy. Also, screw Casserly and waiting until he was already out to finally have a half-assed draft.

There are a few good opinions there. And Clark got hurt by when the vote was held. He got really hot right after the vote ended while Daniels dropped in the receiving categories.

Still, Owen Daniels is pretty much good for a first down any time you use him.

Cool, I was afraid he wouldn't make it after he cooled off the 2nd half of the season. A guess more than a couple Lions players voted for him.

BTW, does anyone else see Tim Tebow as the next Owen Daniels?

As soon as I saw him cry during the draft, I knew he was going to be a joke. The guy you know needs his head examined. :)

As far as the nickname is concerned, I'll stick with just OD.
