Number Two: Chase Daniel
Chase Daniel played quarterback for the Saints as Drew Brees’ backup from 2009 through 2012 and once again in 2017.
Daniel, 33, has always been a great mentor for young quarterbacks and he could be brought back to the Saints to fill the same role.
The Saints are currently in a transition year where they hope to re-sign Drew Brees and Taysom Hill and set up Hill as the starting quarterback going forward. Or, better yet, they could draft a bright up-and-coming QB.
Bringing back Chase Daniel on a two-year deal to help mentor Taysom for a couple years would be beneficial for all involved.
It allows Daniel to potentially win his second Super Bowl ring (he won his first with the Saints in 2009) and it provides the Saints with veteran leadership for Taysom Hill to rely on when and if he struggles as the team’s signal caller.
Daniel has completed 68.3 percent of his passes for 1,430 yards and seven touchdowns in his career.
