Quarterback Chase Daniel will reunite with Doug Pederson in Philadelphia after agreeing to a 3-year, $21 million deal that features $12 million guaranteed, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Adam Caplan. With incentives, the deal could be worth up to $36 million, according to sources.
The Eagles announced the agreement on the three-year deal on Thursday.
Pederson, the Eagles' new head coach, had been Daniel's offensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Chiefs thought enough of Daniel in 2013 to sign him to a pricey three-year, $10 million contract to be their primary backup to Alex Smith. Daniel, 29, made two starts for the Chiefs, the only ones of his NFL career. The Chiefs went 1-1 in those games, the loss coming in overtime. The Chiefs would have won that game had they not missed a field goal late in the fourth quarter. He was 43-of-68 for 409 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
Before joining the Chiefs, Daniel was Drew Brees' backup for three seasons with the Saints. In New Orleans, he threw just nine passes.
