According to a report from the NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, Chase Daniel is “drawing interest on the trade market.”
The Eagles signed Daniel last offseason to a three-year deal worth $21 million, with $12 million guaranteed. About a week before the regular season, the Eagles traded Sam Bradford and named rookie quarterback Carson Wentz as their starter.
The Eagles have about $12 million in cap space as it stands right now, which is third least in the league, to go along with eight draft picks in the 2017 draft.
Daniel has a cap hit of $8 million for each of the next two seasons.
The 30-year-old quarterback, who went undrafted in 2009, has started just two career games.
The Eagles are reportedly interested in Saints receiver Brandin Cooks.
