Pro Bowler Mike Daniels hopes to sign with contender after shocking Packers release
Veteran defensive tackle Mike Daniels received some very surprising news when he was released by the Green Bay Packers at the start of training camp on Wednesday, and he may take a while before deciding where he wants to play next.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Daniels, who made the Pro Bowl two seasons ago, would prefer to sign with a Super Bowl contender.

Daniels, 30, had been with the Packers since they drafted him in the fourth round back in 2012. He’s been one of the most reliable interior defensive linemen in football since, and he came into the season looking for redemption after he landed on injured reserve with a foot injury last November. Daniels was due to make $7.6 million this season in the final year of his contract.
There should be plenty of interest in Daniels, but he may be selective if he’s intent on playing for a contender.
