Former Packers DT Mike Daniels, Detroit Lions reportedly finalizing deal
The latest info on potential Tennessee Titans free agency target Mike Daniels
After being cut by the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday, the Tennessee Titans should be hot on the trail of defensive lineman Mike Daniels, who will draw interest from several teams.
UPDATE: Friday, July 26th at 4:22 p.m. EDT
The Detroit Lions are finalizing a deal with former Packers defensive lineman Mike Daniels, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
A surprising turn of events for sure, as it was expected Daniels would sign with a team that has a better shot of contention in 2019. Regardless, the Lions landed their man.
Schefter also notes that Daniels had interest from about a dozen teams.
Daniels will now face his former mates twice a year for as long as he’s in Detroit.
End of Update
While Tennessee Titans fans would love to put defensive lineman Mike Daniels in the two tone blue, there will be plenty of teams around the NFL looking to sign him.
Daniels was a surprise cut by the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday, making him a free agent. As of that moment, Daniels became the hottest name on the open market.
Daniels’ first meeting with a team will take place on Thursday with the Cleveland Browns, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Daniels was drafted in the fourth round (No. 132 overall) in the 2012 NFL Draft. He spent seven seasons with the Packers, playing in 102 games (72 starts) in that span. Daniels became one of the best defensive lineman in the sport in that time, and was a Pro Bowler back in 2017.

As the story develops more updates will follow, but getting the first visit is huge for the Cleveland Browns who clearly want some help at defensive tackle. This would add insult to injury since the Tennessee Titans Week 1 opponent is obviously the same Cleveland Browns.
With Taylor Lewan out, the last thing the Titans need is for the front line of the Browns to get any better since they will already have to deal with Myles Garrett, Larry Ogunjobi and Oliver Vernon among others.
Since Kevin Byard’s long term deal is now done with the Tennessee Titans, the cap situation for 2018 and 2019 (and beyond) is a lot clearer so if there is going to be a move it makes sense for it to be soon to try to get that new player into camp as soon as possible.
