Daniel has started only five regular-season games. He has completed 149 of 218 passes for 1,430 yards, seven TDs and five interceptions.

He is known around the NFL for his football IQ. That and his work ethic has kept him in the league.

He has already renewed his connection with Stafford.

“We already talked quite a bit about the offense,” Daniel said.

“I take the job really seriously. First and foremost, when you get your opportunity you have to play, and you have to win. You have to help the starter in any way possible that he needs help.

“I’m not coming here to take anyone’s job. Matthews’s the starter. I also have to get myself ready week in and week out. There’s a lot of preparation mentally.”

It’s a new offseason for everyone because of the coronavirus. Daniel said he doesn’t expect teams to have any offseason program, which means players won’t begin working together on the field until training game.

“I think it’s highly unlikely we have an offseason program,” Daniel said. “I think there’ll be a lot of digital time. It’s going to be difficult. I already asked for the playbook. You’ll have a lot of guys having to study, getting into their playbook.

“That’s a whole different thing if you’re not able to do it physically.”
