In what can be described as somewhat surprising news, the Houston Texans have decided to part ways with tight end Owen Daniels, according to the Houston Chronicle's John McClain.
This should open up some eyes in the Baltimore area, considering the success Daniels had under Gary Kubiak when the two were in Houston. Daniels did fracture his fibula in 2013, which forced him to miss the season. But he was a staple in Kubiak's two-tight end offense, recording over 500 receiving yards in five of his eight seasons with the Texans.
It looks like Daniels is a cap casualty, considering he was slated to carry a $6.25 million cap figure in 2014. Given the track record with Kubiak, it wouldn't be out of the question for the Ravens to look into the possibility of bringing him on board to work with Dennis Pitta.
In the hypothetical scenario of Daniels becoming a right player/right price type of guy, then the Ravens wouldn't have to highly consider taking one of the top tier tight ends in the upcoming draft.
