Ravens Have “Big Plans” for Owen Daniels

OWINGS MILLS — Baltimore Ravens tight ends coach Brian Pariani was apparently excited enough that the Ravens had come to terms with Owen Daniels that he let out a mild roar when he first heard Baltimore had agreed to terms with Daniels Thursday afternoon.

That’s at least how it was described to Daniels Friday by different members of the Ravens’ organization.

Pariani had been pushing for Daniels to sign with Baltimore ever since Daniels was released by the Houston Texans March 11.

Pariani was Daniels’ tight ends coach during his eight seasons with the Texans. New offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak was the head coach. And now, the Ravens expect Daniels to be a similar type of weapon for them that he was under Pariani and Kubiak in Houston.

Daniels passed a physical Friday and signed his one-year contract with Baltimore.

“Just couldn’t be more happy, more excited. … I guarantee his role will be plenty big,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “He’s going to have a lot to do with our success next year, and we’ve got a lot of big plans for him.”

Daniels reportedly also visited the Green Bay Packers and Washington Redskins, but he felt like Baltimore was the best fit for him.

Kubiak’s offense with the Texans featured a lot of two-tight end sets. With Daniels now in the mix to go along with Dennis Pitta, Daniels said to “look for more of that in the future.”

“We’ve got the guys here to do it, and that makes things tough for defenses,” Daniels said.

Daniels is 32 and missed 11 games last season because of a leg injury, but he was productive when healthy.

He had 24 catches for 252 yards and three touchdowns in five games.

In 2012, he was selected to the Pro Bowl after catching 62 passes for 716 yards and six touchdowns.

Daniels, a fourth-round pick of Houston in 2006, has had 677 yards or more during each of the four seasons he has played in at least 15 games.

“I’m excited to get back out there, get back to work and remind people of what I did [in 2012] and the first five games last year,” Daniels said.
