The Kansas City Chiefs have re-signed unrestricted free agent CB Travis Daniels, according to Josh Looney of KCChiefs.com via Twitter.
I think this is a very good signing for the Chiefs. Daniels has been with the team since 2009 and has stepped up on multiple occasions when the Chiefs have needed him.
He was drafted by the Dolphins in the fourth round in 2005. He’s a veteran who you probably don’t want starting for you but he does pretty well in spot duty. He has 14 tackles and two interceptions for the Chiefs last year as a reserve. He also picked up an interception in 2010 in a similar reserve role.
Daniels is 29 and stands at 6’1″, so he gives the Chiefs some height at CB should they ever want to use him in machup situations.
Daniels played 299 snaps on defense for the Chiefs last season. He was graded a -2.9 by Pro Football Focus. He was used a bit as a pass rusher against the Bears (see above) and tallied a QB hit and two pressures.
Daniels isn’t a flashy player but he adds a type of veteran depth the Chiefs need for their young defense.
