Seattle now has a third quarterback, having claimed rookie B.J. Daniels, the 49ers’ seventh-round draft pick out of South Florida, off of waivers Wednesday. To make room, the Seahawks released rookie linebacker John Lotulelei.
San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh made it clear the 49ers valued Daniels and his future with the team, and had every intention of signing him to their practice squad. The team cut him in favor of quarterback John Skelton because they think veteran’s experience can help the 53-man roster more at this point.
