Default Owen Daniels agrees with Ravens

Didn't see this coming huh?

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/10...ltimore-ravens

Quote:
The Baltimore Ravens reached a one-year agreement with tight end Owen Daniels on Thursday, the team confirmed.

Daniels, who was released by the Houston Texans on March 11, will take a physical in Baltimore on Friday to complete the deal. This reunites Daniels with former Texans coach Gary Kubiak, who is now the Ravens' offensive coordinator.

A two-time Pro Bowler, Daniels is expected to back up Dennis Pitta and play a significant role in the Ravens' two tight end packages. Daniels, 31, represents a major upgrade over Ed Dickson, the Ravens' No. 2 tight end, who was not re-signed.

Durability is the biggest concern with Daniels. He has been limited to 11 games or fewer in three of the past five seasons. Last season, Daniels played only five games because of a fractured fibula.

In his seven-year career, Daniels has caught over 50 passes four times and has scored a total of 29 touchdowns.

I guess they are definately Houston B, now that the Denver connection is pretty much done in town.

Had to fill their ex-Tex quota after they cut Vonta.

Lol what, can't take a joke? We used to call ourselves Denver South for the longest time thanks to Kubiak's system.

The Baltimore Ravens' signing of tight end Owen Daniels capped off one of the most impressive free agency periods for an offense in rebuilding mode.

It also gained Steve Smith's approval.

"I truly believe you can never have too many horses in the stable," Smith said Thursday, via The Baltimore Sun. "You can never have too many fast cars in your garage."
Ravens #2 Most Improved Offense

Amazing what a passed by predictable offense the league has figured out can do for you.

Signed for 1/3rd what he was making here, a bit butthurt...

Owen Daniels on Houston: "I think we’re playing down there this year, so what Steve Smith said about playing in Carolina." #BloodAndGuts

Owen Daniels on Texans: "I let go of where I was the last eight years whenever they let me go. I wasn’t good enough for them anymore."
OD was a great teammate/Texan, but what did he expect with a new coaching staff that can't have contact with the players?

How bout the QB. The coach wasn't the guy who was throwing pick 6's. That offense is the same one that started the previous season 11-1 winning back to back division titles before the QB's compounded injuries sapped him of what little physical ability he did have.

This was the coaches handpicked 2-14 team from the GM to the waterboy.

He failed and lost his job because of it. I hope Gary/OD etc... do well in Baltimore.

You say that as if you believe Gary was in charge of player acquisition ... roster building was / is Rick Smith's job. The coaches job is to coach the talent the GM acquires. The talent that Rick gave Gary to work with was obviously sub-par ... Proof of that is the purging of many of those players from the current roster.

If ya ask me , the wrong guy got fired.

This kind of thing just shows you how much weight a HC has on signings and roster decisions. I loved OD but this wasn't a bad move by us, given his injury history. Can't wait to see what we do with these 11 picks.

But they're all getting picked up pretty quick. He can't have done too bad.

I remember a time when you were out of the NFL if you were cut by the Texans (well, maybe Detroit or Buffalo would give you a shot), now our back ups are getting picked up.

When Schaub looks as bad in Oakland as he did here .... people will understand the flaw was under center , not the system or the coaches.

He's had another year to recover , I predict he starts out fairly well and falls apart towards the middle and is a complete disaster by the end of the season.
