RENTON, Wash. – The Seattle Seahawks have added a third quarterback to their roster by claiming B.J. Daniels off waivers from San Francisco.
Seattle made the roster move Wednesday. The Seahawks released rookie linebacker John Lotulelei to clear a spot on the 53-man roster for Daniels.
The 49ers waived Daniels on Tuesday after they decided to sign John Skelton. San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh said he was hoping to re-sign Daniels to the practice squad and the 49ers had plans for developing Daniels, but the Seahawks swooped in and signed him first.
Daniels did not appear in a regular season game. He was a seventh-round pick in the April draft by the 49ers.
