Daniel has been in the NFL since 2009, spending time in Washington, Kansas City, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Chicago and Detroit. He was a member of the New Orleans Saints Super Bowl XLIV Championship team.

Daniel’s biggest moment came on Thanksgiving Day in Week 12 of the 2018 season when he was named the starter for a matchup against the Detroit Lions. He completed 27-of-37 pass attempts for 230 yards passing and two passing touchdowns in a 23-16 victory.

Daniel got his start in the NFL when Washington signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2009, after an illustrious career at the University of Missouri.

Daniel was born and raised in Texas, attending Carroll High School in Southlake, Texas. He was initially a wide receiver but excelled as a quarterback in his junior and senior years throwing for 8,298 yards and 91 touchdowns.

Daniel and his wife have three children.
