NFL Rumors: Big plans for Owen Daniels in Baltimore

By on 1:15 PM

Ever since March 11, when tight end Owen Daniels was released from the Houston Texans. Baltimore Ravens tight ends coach Brian Pariani was persistent with management on bringing Daniels in to implement him in their offense for the 2014-15 season.

His exact reasoning comes from sharing a sideline with him for eight seasons in Houston as Daniels' first tight end coach. The relationship for Daniels between Pariani is rekindled with the signing of the 32 year-old on a one year, million dollar deal in Baltimore, according to the Carroll County Times.

Running the two tight end set in 2013, Owen Daniels is potentially a good fit for Baltimore. When healthy in Houston, Daniels managed to pull out 252 yards receiving while catching 3 touchdowns in only five games of the season.

Not only will the relationship between Daniels and Pariani be rekindled. Daniels' previous head coach in Houston, Gary Kubiak was also signed as offensive coordinator for Baltimore during the offseason. Having both Daniels' previous tight end coach and head coach with him in Baltimore will be beneficial during this transition.

“He’s going to have a lot to do with our success next year, and we’ve got a lot of big plans for him.”  Head coach John Harbaugh said shortly after the signing of Owen Daniels. 

The new tandem of Owen Daniels and Dennis Pitta could definitely be a sight to see in September. For what they both offer in receiving and blocking, Harbaugh has claimed to have found the right piece.
