The 26-year-old Daniels (6-3, 248) returns to Philadelphia after originally entering the NFL as a rookie free agent with the Eagles in 2006. He spent the first 10 weeks of his rookie season on Philadelphia’s practice squad before joining the 53-man roster prior to their game at Indianapolis on 11/26/07. Daniels went on to record nine special teams tackles in the team’s final six contests. In 2007, Daniels was a member of the Giants Super Bowl Championship team, playing in four regular season games and all four postseason contests. In the playoffs, Daniels posted three special teams tackles and a forced fumble of a kickoff return by Michael Spurlock in a Wild Card game win at Tampa Bay.
A native of Clarendon, Ark., Daniels became the first player from Division II Harding University to play in the NFL. In fact, his jersey number (#3) was retired by the school this past season.
