Daniels officially back

← return to Redskins 360

Just got off the phone with defensive end Phillip Daniels, whose five weeks off the roster officially ended when he signed a 1-year, veteran minimum salary deal this morning.

“I’m happy to get it out of the way,” said Daniels, 36, who had his $2.154 million contract voided last month after missing 2008 following knee surgery. “Nothing’s changed. I’ve still got my locker. I’ve always had a good feeling about the Redskins. Kedric [Golston], Clinton [Portis] and the guys were all happy to see me. They said they were glad I was back, but I told them that’s because I do all the [IPod] music for you guys.”

Daniels also ran into Jason Campbell and said the quarterback isn’t flustered by the trade rumors swirling around him.

“We didn’t talk about that,” Daniels said. “Jason is focused on working out, getting better and being the quarterback of this team. I love Jason. He’ll be fine whether he’s here or somewhere else.”
