Seahawks Claim QB Daniels Off 49ers’ Waivers
In a move that you could see coming down the tracks, the Seahawks have claimed quarterback B.J. Daniels off waivers from the 49ers, snatching a player their division rivals had hoped to put on their practice squad if he had cleared.
The move was first reported by Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, though it was predicted by pretty much anyone who’s been paying attention.
The two teams seem to love tweaking each other and signing each other’s castoffs, and this just adds another verse. Signing guys at other positions is part of the gamesmanship, but quarterbacks have a different level of responsibility, so they become more valuable.
The Seahawks were only carrying two quarterbacks (Russell Wilson and Tarvaris Jackson), so there’s plenty of room to stash him at the bottom of the 53, and wait for the 49ers to sign whomever they happen to cut.
