Seattle claimed quarterback B.J. Daniels on waivers today after he was released by the San Francisco 49ers.

Daniels was San Francisco’s a seventh-round draft choice (237th overall) in April’s NFL Draft and has been inactive for the first four games this season.

Linebacker John Lotulelei was released to make room on the roster for Daniels. reported Wednesday afternoon:

Daniels, 23, is highly regarded by the press in San Francisco, where 49ers followers were surprised by his release on Tuesday. The Seahawks snagged him before he could clear waivers and potentially be signed to the Niners’ practice squad.

“(It’s) stunning the 49ers would subject quarterback B.J. Daniels to the waiver wire,” Kevin Lynch of the San Francisco Chronicle wrote Tuesday. “Good, young, mobile quarterbacks are as rare as hen’s teeth, and Daniels proved he was all of those things.”

“Daniels proved proficient in preseason, so much so, that some even considered him to be the second-string quarterback, ahead of veteran Colt McCoy,” Lynch continued. “Daniels possesses poise, a strong arm, and athleticism that’s reminiscent of Seattle’s Russell Wilson.”
