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.

Updating a previous report, Daniel is expected to assume a backup role to begin the season if rookie Carson Wentz is healthy enough to play, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Vikings trade for Sam Bradford originally appeared to clear the way for Daniel to take over starting duties in Week 1, as he was Bradford's backup on the depth chart. However, the Eagles appear to be skipping the middle man and handing the keys to the offense over to their first-round draft pick right away. Daniel could still see the field if Wentz struggles early on or if he suffers some sort of setback from the rib injury he's currently dealing with.

Daniel is the favorite to start at quarterback in Week 1 following the trade of starting quarterback Sam Bradford to the Vikings, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 29-year-old will now be entering his seventh season in the league as a starting quarterback for the first time. Carson Wentz is still the quarterback of the future for the team, but Daniel will likely have the opportunity to run the show from under center right away. Wentz's timeline could be moved up even sooner if Daniel struggles early on. Daniel was just 37-for-60 with one touchdown and two interception in four preseason games.

Daniel threw for 82 yards on 10 of 16 passing in Thursday's win over the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Daniel played a majority of the second half for the eagles, leading the team to one score in his time on the field. He managed to avoid major mistakes but didn't do anything to separate himself. He looks to have a solid hold on the second string QB slot in Philadelphia, despite the team spending the second overall pick on Carson Wentz.

Daniel is slated to join the Eagles, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. His deal with the team is reportedly for three years.

EDGE Analysis

While the Eagles have already elected to pay up in order to retain the services of starting QB Sam Bradford, Daniel now joins the team's backup mix, with the deal reuniting him with new Philadelphia coach Doug Pederson, who worked with Daniel while the two were both with the Chiefs. Daniel thus appears to be an injury away from a shot to helm the Eagles offense, but given Bradford's injury history, it's understandable that Pederson was interested in securing some trusted QB insurance.

Daniel will likely test the free agent market this offseason in hopes of competing for a starting role for another team, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports. "We've had [Daniel] here for three years and I think Chase is a very competitive player. I think we're very lucky to have him as our No. 2 quarterback...At the right price I would try to retain him... I'm also a realist to know that at the certain point if he's getting starter's money I'm not going to be able to retain him," said general manager John Dorsey on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Daniel, who has served as the Chiefs' backup for the past two seasons, recently received some praise from his former offensive coordinator and current Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, who said that the Missouri product could be a starter. He has been a career backup with the Saints and Chiefs, but after seven seasons in the league it appears he wants his shot to be a starter at this level. He figures to garner interest during the free agent period from teams with unsettled quarterback situations.
