PROFILE:

FIFL Experience: Drafted 44th overall (3rd round) by Springfield. He was the 2nd QB taken overall behind Chris Leak (2nd round, 34th pick by Fort Wayne). Made his debut week 3 of the 2019 season, going 8 of 11 for 83 yards. Took over as starter after QB David Dinkins went out of game week 10 of 2019 season. Lead Springfield to a Gold Cup in 2020. Ran for a 2pt conversion in 2020.

Professional Experience: Daniel was not selected in the 2009 NFL Draft, but was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Washington Redskins.[14] The Redskins waived Daniel when making their final cutdowns on September 5, 2009. Daniel was signed to the New Orleans Saints practice squad on September 6, 2009. He was promoted to the active roster on September 26, and named the emergency third quarterback for the September 27 game against the Buffalo Bills. The Saints waived Daniel on October 12, 2009 after placekicker Garrett Hartley (coincidentally, a teammate of Daniel's at Southlake Carroll High School) came back from a four-game suspension, then re-signed him on October 16.[16][17] On November 17, 2009, ESPN reported that Daniel had been cut once again, to allow the Saints to sign cornerback Chris McAlister.[18] He was signed to the team's practice squad once again on November 20, 2009. Daniel was released from the practice squad on December 9, 2009,[19] only to be re-signed to the practice squad two days later on December 11, 2009.[20] Daniel was promoted to the active roster prior to regular season finale on January 1, 2010.[21] Chase Daniel was a member of the 2009-2010 New Orleans Saints Super Bowl Championship team,[22] although he did not take the field that season.[23] Going into the 2010 season, Daniel was expected to battle with veteran Patrick Ramsey for the backup quarterback position behind Drew Brees. Daniel and Ramsey put up similar numbers during the preseason, but on September 3, it was reported that Daniel had been chosen for the spot while Ramsey had been waived.

College: In 2006, Daniel started all 13 games as Missouri earned a berth in the Brut Sun Bowl. He threw for 3,527 yards with a 63.5% completion rate and 28 touchdowns. Daniel also set a school record for passing touchdowns in a game, racking up five scores in the season opener against Murray State. This was good enough for a Second Team All-Big 12 selection while he also was named to the First Team All-Academic Big 12 Team. Daniel is also one of the 35 quarterbacks placed on the 2007 Manning Award watch list.[2]. In 2007, Daniel improved even more stunningly, throwing for 4,306 yards with a 68.2% completion rate and 33 touchdowns, with only 11 interceptions in 14 games. He also rushed for a net 253 yards and four touchdowns for a total offense of 37 touchdowns and 4,559 yards, almost 326 yards per game. On Jan. 1, 2008, Missouri wrapped up a school-best 12-2 season with a 38-7 win over Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl. A week later, the Tigers were ranked No. 4 in the Associated Press' final poll - the highest final ranking in school history - and No. 5 in the ESPN/USA Today coaches' poll. Daniel also announced he was returning for his senior season after putting his name in with the NFL College Advisory Committee to receive feedback for the NFL Draft. On November 27, 2007, the Big 12 Conference named Daniel the Offensive Player of the Year. He is the first Missouri player to be named to that honor.[3] On Dec. 5, 2007, Chase was invited by the Heisman Trophy Trust to go to New York City as one of four finalists. He eventually finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting with 425 points. He garnered 25 first-place votes, 84 second-place votes, and 182 third-place votes. He became only the third Tiger to ever finish in the top-10. His fourth-place showing marks the second-highest finish in Heisman voting by a Tiger player, with Paul Christman the only one to finish higher (third in 1939). In the 2008 preseason, Daniel was named one of 26 candidates for the 2008 Unitas Award, given to the nation's best senior college football quarterback.[4] Daniel continued to break virtually all Mizzou passing records, and in a two-game span against Southeast Missouri State and Nevada, he actually threw more touchdowns (seven) than he did incomplete passes (six). Daniel appeared on the front of ESPN the Magazine with fellow teammate Chase Patton. Daniel donned #25 in honor of fallen teammate Aaron O'Neal. O'Neal died before beginning his freshman year during practice in July 2005, and would have been a senior this year. The number rotated among the senior class that season. He became the Missouri career total offense yardage leader on December 6, with 13,256. He moved ahead of Brad Smith (13,088).[5] Missouri finished with 10 wins and a #19 ranking in AP Polls.

Personal: Daniel prepped under head coach Todd Dodge at Carroll High School in Southlake, Texas, where the team won a 5A Division II state title in 2004 and runner up in 2003. After playing his sophomore year at wide receiver, Daniel was a two-year starter at QB, leading his team to a 31-1 record in those years. Daniel completed 65.2% of his passes for 8,298 yards and 91 touchdowns and added 2,954 rushing yards and 39 scores. Southlake earned a No. 1 national ranking in 2004 after winning the 5A state championship, while Daniel won the 5A state Player of the Year. He was also named the EA Sports National Player of the Year. Despite his high numbers, he was not recruited heavily by his preferred school, Texas. This presented an opportunity for Missouri to recruit him, and give him a chance to be part of a resurgent program. Ironically, it was only after he had committed to Mizzou that Longhorn coach Mack Brown began to seriously look at Daniel but Daniel stuck to his verbal commitment with Missouri. During high school, Daniel was a member of National Honor Society, and a member of his school's student council for three years. Born October 7, 1986.
