Pass Catching Weapon Daniels Inks Tender

The Houston Texans continue their freewheeling ways, agreeing to terms on a 1-year tender with perpetual receiving threat tight end Owen Daniels, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Per Schefter, Daniels agreed to a $3.168 million tender Friday, a team source told him. Daniels appeared well on his way to his first 1000+ yard season until a Week 8 tear of his right ACL shut down his 2009. Daniels' agreeing to the deal indicates he should be ready to participate come training camp and, health permitting, hopefully a return to form. Just one week prior to injury, Daniels recorded a 7-catch, 123 yard 1 TD game in the Texans' victory over San Francisco.

While the early incarnations of the Texans never offered much besides nostalgia (wither Billy Miller) at the tight end position, Daniels has provided a potential Pro Bowl caliber contributor at the slot in addition to veteran leadership to the seemingly surplus of young accessories the team now garners. And while there may be no bigger fans of Rice product  James Casey than us here at SBNHouston, you'd be hard pressed to find a voice of dissent in the thinking that the return of Daniels makes for addition by addition.
