Daniel (ankle) was a full practice participant Friday, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

EDGE Analysis

Daniel's quick return to full participation suggests he should be fine to back up Drew Brees on Monday. The Saints recently signed undrafted rookie Taysom Hill to serve as their No. 3 quarterback.

Daniel was limited in Thursday's practice with an ankle injury.

EDGE Analysis

This is the first report of Daniel dealing with an ankle injury, so the severity is currently unknown. The quarterback is slated to start the season as Drew Brees' primary backup, but if this injury keeps him out of the team's season opener against the Vikings, newly-signed rookie Taysom Hill would be the only other healthy option at quarterback on the active roster.

Daniel completed seven of 12 passes for 80 yards in Sunday's preseason win against the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Daniel looked steady, delivering some short passes that gave his receivers some opportunities to turn up field for big gains. The veteran, entering his ninth season, has yet to get any extended looks during his career, but finds himself in a familiar scheme in New Orleans. Drew Brees has been durable during his time in New Orleans, but any time a quarterback gets up there in age, it doesn't hurt to keep tabs on his backup.

Daniel will likely start Thursday's preseason game at Cleveland, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

There's an expectation Drew Brees sits out the Saints' exhibition opener, thereby handing the keys to the offense to Daniel. With just 78 career passes under his belt, Daniel has still completed 65.4 percent of them for 480 yards, one touchdown and one interception, which equates to an 81.1 quarterback rating.

Daniel signed a contract with the Saints on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Daniel was cut by the Eagles two weeks ago, just one year into a three-year, $21 million contract with the team. His deal with New Orleans is believed to be for just one season. He'll compete with Luke McCown and Garrett Grayson for the top-backup position behind starting quarterback Drew Brees.

Daniel will visit the Jets on Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Eagles signed Daniel to a three-year, $21 million contract (including $12 million guaranteed) last offseason, only to release him after an uneventful 2016 campaign in which he attempted just one pass. The 30-year-old career backup won't be paid so handsomely this time around, but the Jets likely would give him a shot to fight for the starting job. The Eagles signed Nick Foles to serve as a more affordable backup to Carson Wentz.

The Eagles released Daniel on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

After reuniting with former starting QB Nick Foles, the Eagles received a request from Daniel for his release, which has been approved. Daniel will thus seek out a situation in which he can compete for a top job, though another stint donning a headset and holding a clipboard may be in the cards.

Daniel has requested to be released by the Eagles, Kimberley A. Martin of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Daniel's decision comes after the Eagles brought back quarterback Nick Foles on a two-year contract Monday. With Carson Wentz clearly Philadelphia's long-term answer at the position, Foles' presence further blocks Daniel's path to playing time, which he's now seeking elsewhere. While Daniel's future reportedly has been subject to speculation "for weeks", his career 78 passing attempts across seven seasons still leaves question over his value.

Daniel is reportedly drawing trade interest, CSN Philadelphia reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old Daniel has just two NFL regular season starts to his credit and attempted just one pass in 2016. On the plus side, he proved to be a solid mentor and backup to Philadelphia's franchise QB, Carson Wentz. Of course, potentially dealing Daniel is complicated by the fact that he is due to earn $7 million in 2017, with an $8 million salary cap hit. Those numbers might prompt the cap-challenged Eagles to consider moving the QB, but it remains to be seen if a team like the Jets, who might be in the market for a signal-caller per NJ.com, will make a strong push to acquire Daniel.

Daniel will be the backup quarterback Week 1 against the Browns after Wentz was officially named the starting quarterback on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

It looks like an injury to Wentz, who has recovered from a rib injury, is the most likely way Daniel sees the field this season, as head coach Doug Pederson appears to be all in on developing Wentz this season as the franchise quarterback. Neither option, however, looks to be a quality starter for this coming season.
