Owen Daniels would look good in the green and white

The Texans released seven year veteran Owen Daniels today. One of the more underrated tight ends in the NFL, Daniels amassed 385 career receptions and 4617 yards in his tenure with Houston. While the Jets have just re-signed Jeff Cumberland, wouldn’t an experienced pass catcher like Daniels serve the offense well in Marty Mornhinweg’s attack? There are some good options in the upcoming draft (Eric Ebron/Jace Amaro), but Daniels prowess would be an instant impact for a team desperate for reliable options in the passing game.

Daniels was simply a salary cap casualty for Houston as they look to re-sign the younger Garrett Graham or hand the job to second year TE Ryan Griffin. The talent is still there, and despite having his season cut short last year with a tibial plateau fracture, Daniels has been quoted as saying "It's like it never happened,…I feel good in that respect. I'm looking forward to coming in fresh and healthy."

He may not be a sexy name to many fans, but Daniels should still have a few good seasons left. He was due to make $6.5 million this year for the Texans. Now, 31 years old and coming off an injury, John Idzik might be able to sign him on a cap friendly deal while still being able to promise him significant playing time. What do you think Jets fans?
