Free Agent TE Owen Daniels Visiting Packers

Jeff Gross

Former-Texans tight end Owen Daniels will visit the Packers as part of his free agency tour.

One of the focal points of the Packers' offseason is the tight end position. Both of the team's top two tight ends from 2013, Jermichael Finley and Andrew Quarless, could depart for bigger money elsewhere. Green Bay had previously been connected with multiple tight ends, including Vikings' John Carlson and the Texans' Garrett Graham. However, it appears a different Houston tight end interests the Packers.

According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal, free agent Owen Daniels has a sit down with Packers brass in the near future.

Should the Packers sign Daniels, it would mark a return to the state where his rise to national prominence began. Daniels was recruited to Wisconsin by then head coach Barry Alvarez as a quarterback. After redshirting his freshman year, Daniels moved into the starting lineup as a receiver, eventually transitioning to tight end his final two seasons. The Texans selected Daniels 98th overall in the 2006 NFL Draft, developing him into one of the league's better receiving tight ends.

Injuries derailed Daniels last season, limiting him to only five games. With limited cap space and several big extensions on the horizon, the Texans released Daniels earlier this month.
