From the article you linked:
That Daniel signed with the Saints as a PS player? Yeah - I am.
From the Sept. 7th New Orleans Times Picayune.
CT, I read it as the Saints worked out a deal with Chase Daniel before he actually cleared waiver.
It is quite possible that his agent already informed other team that he preferred the Saints, so they didn't bother to create an unwanted situation.
As I understand it, the Redskins also wanted to resign him to the PS.
But after Daniel chose to go with the Saints, he basically severed the tie to them.
This is a risk that a team takes.
For example, the Texans cut KW.
He went on to sign with another team for the vet minimum.
What I'm saying is that there is a risk, no matter how slight it is, when you cut a guy.
