PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Eagles announced the release of backup quarterback Chase Daniel on Monday evening.
Earlier on Monday, the Eagles signed quarterback Nick Foles to a two-year deal reportedly worth $11 million and $7 million guaranteed. Foles, 28, was a third-round pick of the Eagles in 2012 and was traded to the Rams in 2015 before signing with the Chiefs last season.
Daniel, 30, signed a three-year deal worth $21 million with the Eagles last offseason. Daniel was guaranteed $5 million this season with a dead cap hit of $7 million, but that is subject to be offset depending on how much his next team pays him.
