Former Heisman Trophy finalist Chase Daniel of Missouri and ex-Maryland offensive linemen Scott Burley and Edwin Williams head a group of 13 undrafted rookies who agreed to terms with the Washington Redskins on Monday.

The players are expected to participate in this weekend’s minicamp at Redskin Park in Ashburn, Va.

Daniel, who passed for 101 touchdowns and 41 interceptions in three years as the Tigers’ starter, will compete with 37-year-old Todd Collins and 2008 sixth-round draft choice Colt Brennan for one of the two backup jobs behind starting quarterback Jason Campbell.

The 6-foot-3, 315-pound Williams, an All-ACC center, could be a surprise since the Redskins don’t have a true backup to Casey Rabach. The DeMatha High School graduate was a three-year starter for the Terps. The 6-5, 335-pound Burley succeeded Washington’s Stephon Heyer as Maryland’s left tackle in 2007 and split time between right and left tackle last season.

Defensive end Derek Walker was a four-year starter at Illinois and is tied for seventh in school history with 15 sacks.

The other players who agreed to terms with the team were Miami defensive tackle Antonio Dixon, UCLA defensive tackle Brigham Harwell, Oregon wide receiver Jaison Williams, Concordia wide receiver John Halman, Delaware tight end Robbie Agnone, Washington State tight end Devin Frischknecht, Arizona linebacker Ronnie Palmer, Michigan cornerback Doug Dutch and Oklahoma safety Lendy Holmes.

The team also will hold a tryout camp for undrafted rookies before minicamp starts.
