Owen Daniels TE BAL 15 Hrs

Daniels (leg) will be ready for the start of the regular season, the Ravens' official website reports.

Daniels missed about one week of practice due to swelling and fatigue in his legs, but he returned on a limited basis Monday, and should be fine for next Sunday's opener against the Bengals. Though the Ravens are expected to use plenty of two-TE sets, Daniels may find targets hard to come by as the clear-cut No. 2 tight end behind Dennis Pitta.

Daniels (leg) returned to practice on a limited basis Monday, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Daniels, who missed the Ravens' past two preseason games with leg soreness, remains in the team's plans, per coach John Harbaugh, but at this stage the veteran TE does not seem like a major threat to Dennis Pitta's targets/fantasy prospects.

Daniels (leg) isn't expected to play in Saturday's preseason game, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Daniels has missed the past few days with leg soreness and may need more rest over the weekend. By most accounts, the veteran tight end has been underwhelming this preseason and missing Saturday's game could add to that sentiment. Should he miss out, Kyle Juszczyk could fill a larger role in Baltimore's tight end friendly offense.

Daniels has missed the last three practices to rest his fatigued legs, The Ravens' official website reports.

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said Daniels isn't dealing with any specific injury, adding that the tight end will likely return to practice before the end of the week. While this doesn't seem to endanger Daniels' status for Week 1, it's a bit concerning for the veteran tight end in light of a previous report which indicated that he's looked slow throughout training camp. Not only does Daniels not seem like a threat to Dennis Pitta's targets, but the 31-year-old may need to fend off second-year fullback Kyle Juszczyk for playing time. Though he's technically listed as the starting fullback, Juszczyk largely played tight end in college, as he's more in the mold of an H-back than a traditional lead blocker.

Owen Daniels visited the Patriots before signing with the Ravens.

We knew Daniels visited the Packers and Redskins before signing with Baltimore, but word of a New England jaunt never leaked. The Pats have a rehabbing Rob Gronkowski (knee) at tight end, but a vacancy at the "move" spot Aaron Hernandez used to play. The Pats could address tight end in the draft.

Owen Daniels' one-year contract with Baltimore includes zero guaranteed money, and has a base value of just $1 million.

The max value is $2 million, with the other $1 million available via incentives. It's another savvy signing by Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome. Daniels is 31 and has become increasingly injury prone in recent seasons, but made a Pro Bowl as recently as 2012, and in 2013 was on pace for a 77-807-10 stat line before going down last season. Daniels' addition will allow the Ravens to make heavy use of "12 personnel," creating mismatches alongside Dennis Pitta.

Ravens agreed to terms with TE Owen Daniels, formerly of the Texans, on a one-year contract.

Daniels is reuniting with Ravens OC Gary Kubiak, who was his head coach his entire Texans career. Going on 32, Daniels has been in slow decline, but should be an excellent complement to Dennis Pitta in the middle of the field. Kubiak loves two-tight end sets, and Daniels has caught at least 54 passes in each of his past five healthy seasons. A broken leg limited him to just five games and 24 grabs in 2013, but he's now 100 percent. Daniels' days as a fantasy TE1 are long gone, but he'll be a reliable pair of hands for a team that lacked them last season. In theory, Daniels' history with Kubiak is a concern for Pitta, but Pitta will unquestionably open the year as the Ravens' starter.

Coach John Harbaugh said the Ravens remain interested in free agent Owen Daniels.

Daniels hasn't seen any action in nearly two weeks. He was released by the Texans before quickly visiting the Ravens, Packers, and Redskins. Baltimore wants to add another tight end to pair with Dennis Pitta. Daniels and Ed Dickson appear to be the frontrunners, while the draft is also an option.

Free agent Owen Daniels will visit the Redskins.

Daniels was in Green Bay visiting the Packers on Wednesday, but Green Bay re-signed Andrew Quarless on Thursday. Daniels could be a reliable middle-of-the-field target for Robert Griffin III, allowing Jordan Reed to stretch the seams.
