WASHINGTON – The Redskins off-season moves continued Friday with the hiring of former player Phillip Daniels as the team’s Director of Player Development.
Daniels was released before the start of training camp last year after 15 seasons in the NFL.
He played his final seven seasons as a member of the Redskins (2004-10). He was drafted in the fourth round of the 1996 NFL Draft (No.99 overall), and played four seasons with the Seattle Seahawks and four seasons with the Chicago Bears before joining the Redskins in 2004.
“We welcome Phillip back to the Redskins family,” Skins General Manager Bruce Allen said. “His 15 years of NFL experience will be a great asset for our football team.”
Daniels played 201 career games totaling 512 tackles, 62 sacks, one interception, and 12 fumble recoveries.
“I’m really looking forward to helping our players and team win — on and off the field,” Daniels said.
