Kansas City Chiefs Training Camp Profile: Chase Daniel
Chase Daniel was a great college player at the University of Missouri with a fairly strong team that ran one of the many variations of the spread offense. With college career totals of 12,515 yards and 101 touchdowns, Daniel figured to be a surefire draft pick and eventual starting quarterback for an NFL team in need of a franchise quarterback.
Since entering into the league as an undrafted player in 2009 with the Washington Redskins, Daniel has spent his time in the league either as a practice squad member or so low on a team’s depth chart that he’s been essentially a coach in pads. With current career total of 55 yards passing and a QB Rating of 92.1, Daniel doesn’t have enough on his resume to sway one’s opinion to of his potential as a starting quarterback.
True, he does have a Super Bowl ring as a member of the New Orleans Saints, but the most significant time that he spent on the field was as a place holder for field goals and extra points.
Now, as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs, Daniel once again goes into training camp in a backup role. With the Chiefs franchise dealing for Alex Smith in the off-season and the hiring of Andy Reid, Daniel will enter the team’s 2013 training camp vying for a roster spot at worst and second team reps at best.
With the organization investing a draft pick on University of Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray and third-year pro Ricky Stanzi also on the roster, it’s going to be a long uphill battle for Daniel to make the 2013 Chiefs roster.
