Chiefs sign QB Chase Daniel

Former Missouri Tigers QB returns to familiar territory


Chase Daniel played collegiately for the Missouri Tigers; he'll play the same position for the Kansas City Chiefs, signing a free agent deal, the team announced today.

Despite entering the league as an undrafted free agent with the Washington Redskins in 2009, he was later signed by the New Orleans Saints.

Daniel has taken snaps in five games, during his four NFL seasons with the Saints (2009-12).

With New Orleans, he served as a backup, learning from future Hall of Fame QB Drew Brees.

Daniel's career numbers include seven completions on nine attempts (77.8%) for 55 yards. His preseason numbers include 105 completions on 165 attempts (63.6%.) for 1,354 yards, with 11 TDs and six INTs. Daniel split time between the club's practice squad and active roster, during his first two seasons.

Playing his college ball 120 miles away from One Arrowhead Drive, at One Champions Drive in Columbia, MO, Daniel led the Missouri Tigers to a 30-11 record, over three years as a starter, including the first two Big 12 North Division titles in school history. He completed 1,094 of 1,609 passes (68.0%) for 12,515 yards, 101 TDs and 41 INTs, with a 149.0 passer rating.

He prepped at Southlake Carroll High School, located in Southlake, Texas.
