Daniels, Wynn talk deals
Phillip Daniels and Renaldo Wynn together again with the Washington Redskins? It could happen.
Daniels said Sunday that Washington's starting defensive ends in 2004 and 2005 might reunite this season.
When healthy the past five seasons, Daniels was a starting end for Washington before having his contract voided at the start of free agency last month. After five years with the Redskins - the first four as a starter - Wynn spent the past two seasons as a backup for New Orleans and the New York Giants.
Daniels, who has started negotiations with the Redskins, said the team has talked to Wynn about coming back, too.
"Renaldo and I have talked about how great it would be if we get this worked out," Daniels said after a workout in his offseason home in Chicago. "We're both getting older, so the Redskins said they could see having both of us at left end for a year or two."
Washington is in dire straits at left end because Jason Taylor and Demetric Evans, the players who manned the position last season when Daniels was out after major knee surgery, are gone. Taylor was cut March 2 after refusing the club's demand that he attend 25 offseason conditioning sessions at Redskin Park. Evans, whom the Redskins didn't try hard to sign before he became a free agent, joined San Francisco on March 4.
Daniels, who turned 36 on March 4, also has received feelers from Tennessee and Denver, so the Redskins might have to spend some of their $6.7 million in salary cap room soon if they want to bring him back.
"We're getting closer to getting something done with the Redskins since Demetric left," Daniels said. "They know I don't want to switch teams, but I will."
Wynn, 34, has started just two games the past three seasons, but he recorded one of his two sacks in 2008 against the Redskins. After adding end Chris Canty and tackle Rocky Bernard in free agency and with end Osi Umenyiora coming back from knee surgery, the Giants had no room for Wynn. He couldn't be reached for comment Sunday.
Daniels said his left knee is ahead of schedule. He had surgery in July after suffering a season-ending injury on the first day of training camp.
"I feel good," he said. "I'm already squatting 500 pounds. I think I could play until I'm 40. The Redskins know that I'm one tough dude and that I'll be in shape for camp."
