The Washington Redskins probably won’t officially release a list of undrafted free agents until Monday, but according to his Twitter site (@ChaseDaniel) and according to Missouri’s official journalism program newspaper, former Tigers quarterback Chase Daniel is on his way to Ashburn.
A Redskins spokesman wouldn’t confirm the signing. [UPDATE: A team official just confirmed the signing]
Daniel passed for 12,515 yards and 101 touchdowns in a brilliant career at Missouri; he was a Heisman Trophy candidate in each of the last two seasons. But he didn’t have the height (the school generously lists him at 6-0 and 225 pounds) and arm strength so coveted in the NFL. (link to ESPN.com feature from last season).
More on Daniel and the other free agents who land with the Redskins on Monday.
