The 30-year-old Daniel signed a one-year deal with the Saints last week to compete to be the backup to Drew Brees, and even though the 38-year-old Brees has said he plans to play for at least a few more years, the possibility of replacing the future Hall of Famer was a draw for Daniel.This will last until the Saints take another quarterback with the 11th pick in the draft, which everyone believes they will, of course.

Back to the Future
The Saints are releasing 35 year old Luke McCown, who has backed up the 38 year old Drew Brees these past few seasons and replacing him with the 30 year old (Chunky) Chase Daniel(s). It's a veritable youth movement. Daniel, for his part, still sees himself as a QB of the future. Because that's what you do, I guess.
