Broncos Sign Owen Daniels

3:40pm: Daniels will get $12MM over three years, according to Mike Klis of The Denver Post (on Twitter).

3:18pm: The Broncos announced that they have signed tight end Owen Daniels to a three-year deal, according to Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun (on Twitter).

Daniels was scheduled to visit Denver on Wednesday, but it sounds like the two sides¬†slid the powwow up on their schedule. Now, Daniels will give Denver some reinforcements at tight end after Julius Thomas‘ reported agreement with the Jaguars. Last season, Daniels hauled in 48 catches for 527 yards and 4 touchdowns. That campaign was his most productive since his 2012 Pro Bowl season in which he had 62 catches for 716 yards and six scores.

Daniels, 31, was limited to just five games in 2013 due to a broken leg. In his previous seven NFL seasons, however, he averaged over 51 receptions per year to go along with 26 total touchdowns. Daniels was also named to two Pro Bowl teams, in 2008 and 2012. His deal with Baltimore last year was worth $1MM with $1MM in incentives.
