Seahawks Claim Former 49ers Backup QB B.J Daniels

49ers_Daniels_2013RENTON, Wash. — The Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers are even this fall when it comes to claiming each other’s draft choices.

The 49ers had planned to stash quarterback B.J. Daniels on their practice squad, but the Seahawks had other plans, grabbing him off waivers.

Seattle now has a third quarterback, having claimed rookie B.J. Daniels, the 49ers’ seventh-round draft pick out of South Florida, off waivers Wednesday. To make room, the Seahawks released rookie linebacker John Lotulelei.

San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh had made it clear the 49ers valued Daniels and had every intention of signing him to their practice squad. The team cut him in favor of John Skelton, believing the veteran quarterback’s experience would benefit the 53-man roster more at this point.
