The Baltimore Ravens have added another weapon on offense.
NFL Media's Aditi Kinkhabwala reported Thursday that tight end Owen Daniels and the Ravens have agreed to terms on a deal, according to a source apprised of the negotiations. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported the agreement is for one year, and the team later confirmed the news.
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.
