The Baltimore Ravens have added another weapon on offense.

The move reunites Daniels with Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, who coached Daniels with the Houston Texans.

Daniels, 31, spent his first eight seasons with the Texans before being released last month. He acted as a dependable safety blanket for Matt Schaub in Houston, doing the bulk of his damage in the middle of the field. Daniels missed 11 games last season due to a broken leg, but had 385 catches and 29 touchdowns during his productive run in Houston.

The move gives Joe Flacco a nice one-two punch at tight end with Daniels joining Dennis Pitta. Daniels is a substantial upgrade over Ed Dickson that gives Kubiak plenty of options in two-tight end sets.

With Steve Smith also in the fold, it's clear the Ravens have made a commitment to improving the supporting cast around their Super Bowl MVP quarterback.
