Along with adding to Chase Daniel’s storied legacy of getting paid, this also makes perfect sense football-wise.
Daniel spent several years in the Saints’ offense and should be a really useful resource in the room for Justin Herbert as he learns the nuances. https://t.co/lAleqskfzH
The Chargers drafted Easton Stick to be as a developmental quarterback who could potentially turn into a long term backup. They have two years to figure out if Stick can still be that, and the signing of Chase Daniel doesn’t really change that tbh.

It’s all good when Chase Daniel do it, but let David Girard, Charlie Batch, Tyrod Taylor, Mike Vick, Rodney Pete or I could go on & on! It would be criminal for those guys to do it! Great job Chase! GTFOH! Just saying! 👀😳😂
I know I don’t see Twitter accounts hyping up a signing of *checks notes* Chase Daniel
Has anybody thought about the real reason why the #Chargers signed Chase Daniel?
It's to mentor Stick on how to be the consummate backup, year in and year out.
Chase Daniel is the most successful Mizzou alum. Like not just in the NFL, in general. Just an absolute legend of securing the bag. https://t.co/b5YzzBZ6QQ

Chase Daniel. I kinda recognize the name. When and where did he play? Was he ever a starter? https://t.co/cfL3NagqEv
Chase Daniel is coming to Los Angeles to backup Justin Herbert. Solid veteran and future coach! This move reminds of when the Chargers added Kellen Clemens to their roster years backup, another veteran mind to the quarterback room. #Chargers #NFL
Chase Daniel keeps getting bags.
