He was released earlier in free agency in a salary cap move and apperently received plenty of interest on the free agent market, but ultimately decided to return to Washington. It was also believed that the interested teams wanted to wait until after the draft.
Daniels' re-signing with Washing represents a significant paycut as he was scheduled to make $2.15 million in 2008 under his old contract.
Daniels, 36, has been with the Redskins since 2004. Previously, the former University of Georgia standout played with Seattle (1996-1999) and Chicago (2000-2003). He has appeared in 159 games with 141 starts, and started 15 games for Washington in 2007. He had 37 tackles and 2½ sacks that season but missed the 2008 season with a knee injury.
For his career, Daniels has 456 tackles, 59 sacks, 15 forced fumbles, 12 fumble recoveries, one interception, and 36 passes defensed.
