The Houston Texans have signed quarterback/wide receiver B.J. Daniels off the Seattle Seahawks practice squad. Daniels has been a developmental player since he was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in 2013 out of South Florida.
Daniels was claimed by the Seahawks in 2013 and has been with them up until the Texans signed him off the practice squad. Daniels was part of the Super Bowl team in in 2013 and has played in 6 games in 2015 with the Seahawks where he had two receptions for 18 yards.
Daniels this preseason for the Seahawks worked at quarterback, wide receiver, kick returner and punt returner.
He takes the roster spot of T.J. Yates who was placed on the injured reserve and possibly be a back up plan for Cecil Shorts III who has a groin injury. Daniels fills the void at backup quarterback and wide receiver if needed for the remainder of the season.
