Report: Baltimore Ravens interested in Owen Daniels

ProFootballTalk.com reported on Tuesday that Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said former Houston Texans tight end Owen Daniels is “under consideration” to be signed by the franchise.

The article by PFT says:

“Head coach John Harbaugh indicated Tuesday that former Texans tight end Owen Daniels is under consideration, the club’s Twitter feed reported.”

Currently Dennis Pitta is the No. 1 tight end on the Ravens’ roster, plus they are still in talks of re-signing Ed Dickson.

This offseason the Ravens signed former Texans head coach Gary Kubiak as their offensive coordinator, so he’s very familiar with Daniels.

Daniels missed 11 games this past season and was placed on the IR. This offseason the Texans cut the tight end after eight seasons with the team.

In 2013 (five games) Daniels caught 24 passes for 252 yards (10.5 yards per reception) and three touchdowns.

I think Daniels would be a good fit for the Ravens since he’s already more than familiar with the offense of Kubiak.

The Ravens could use some depth at the position, but the question is do they want their top two tight ends to be coming off abbreviated seasons in 2013? Pitta played in just four games this past season where he had 20 receptions for 169 yards and one touchdown.
