Chase Daniel Visiting Jets

The Jets’ quarterback search continues. Today, the Jets will meet with free agent Chase Daniel, Adam Schefter of tweets.

Daniel, 30, huddled up with the Saints on Sunday but left New Orleans without a contract. Despite the lack of game film on him, Daniel is highly respected in coaching circles and is said to be a strong quarterback in practice. Last season, Doug Pederson‘s endorsement was enough to convince the Eagles to sign him to a three-year pact with a $21MM value. Now, the Jets are seriously entertaining him as a starting option even though he’s only thrown 78 passes over the course of his seven-year NFL career.

If the season started today, Bryce Petty would be the Jets’ starting quarterback with 2016 second-round pick Christian Hackenberg as his backup. When all is said and done, Petty could still wind up as the starter, but the Jets will fully explore their options before committing to the Baylor product. Former Browns QB Josh McCown is also in the mix.

In a poll on Sunday night, 47% of PFR readers predicted that Jay Cutler would wind up as the Jets’ starting QB in 2017.

    People talk about Sam Bradford stealing money. Chase Daniel has 78 attempted passes earning over 19M for 243k per throw. Bradford has earned 96M so far – for 33k per throw.

    • Not his fault he gets signed to compete for a starting gig and then they sign Bradford and draft Wentz. Hopefully he gets a chance to prove he deserved a real shot.
