DT - CIN
Week 7 Outlook
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Lions and former Packers DL Mike Daniels have agreed to a one-year deal worth $9.1 million and $7.8 million in guaranteed money.
Daniels, who was released earlier in the week, did not have to wait very long to find a new suitor. In fact, he will remain in the NFC North and help bolster an already strong Lions defensive front seven. While Detroit's offense will be a question mark entering 2019, their defense will likely be the strength of the team and must carry them in games to remain competitive, especially if Matthew Stafford's struggles linger into the new season.
Former Packers defensive lineman Mike Daniels visited the Browns on Thursday.
Daniels was released by Green Bay earlier this week, and his first visit was with Cleveland. The 2017 Pro-Bowler started in 71 of 72 appearances over the last five seasons and could make an already formidable Browns defensive front even more dangerous if he signs.
Mike Daniels recorded two total tackles (one solo) and a sack in the Packers' loss to the Patriots on Sunday Night Football.
While Daniels has done slightly better lately after going three consecutive outings with only one tackle, he still doesn't hold enough fantasy value to warrant a waiver pickup.
Mike Daniels finished Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns with five solo tackles, four of which were solo.
Daniels has been on a roller coaster of production this season. He should be considered a DL3 option for IDP leagues.
Mike Daniels finished Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with seven total tackles, five of which were solo, plus a sack.
