Texans TE Owen Daniels, whose production has nosedived since suffering an ACL injury in 2009, reached a contract agreement with Houston today, according to the Houston Chronicle’s John McClain.
Assuming Daniels is healthy now, he’s still a big part of Houston’s offense, even though the Texans have a glut of TEs on the roster now.
After producing a 70-catch, 862-yard season in 2008, Daniels tore his ACL midway through the 2009 season, and though he returned last year – perhaps before he was completely 100 percent healthy – the knee obviously still bothered him (he had 38 catches for 471 yards in 11 games).
NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora reports that the deal is worth four years and $22 million.
