New Orleans Saints: 3 reasons Chase Daniel is the perfect option at backup
3 of 4
Chase Daniel played well last year.
Chase Daniel was called on to start in one game last year for the Chicago Bears due to injury with starter Mitchell Trubisky. He also appeared in two other games last season. He definitely used his time wisely when he got to play.
In those games like Bridgewater, Chase Daniel proved that he could handle the reigns of the team. In those three games, Daniel completed 45 of 64 passes for 453 yards and three touchdowns. He also threw two interceptions along with those stats as well.
Compared to the games that Bridgewater came in and started for the Saints, he totaled 133 completions for 1,384 yards and nine touchdowns. Bridgewater definitely is better than your average backup, but Daniel can also hold his own.
