Report: Skins working to bring Daniels back

The Washington Redskins may be switching to a 3-4 defense, but they figure Phillip Daniels can be just as effective as a defensive end for them in their new scheme, reports Jason Reid of the Washington Post.

Daniels, a 14-year veteran, is in talks with the team about a new contract, per the report. The 37-year-old was a favorite of former defensive coordinator Greg Blache, who preferred stout ends in his 4-3 scheme that would play the run well and allow linebackers to make plays.

Daniels showed his toughness and professionalism last season when he played much of the year with a torn right biceps muscle.
