The Philadelphia Eagles have released Chase Daniel.

In a related move, the Eagles signed Nick Foles to serve as Carson Wentz's backup at quarterback.

"Chase's professionalism and intelligence were valuable assets to our quarterback room," said Eagles executive VP of football operations Howie Roseman. "His veteran leadership was incredibly helpful in (quarterback Carson Wentz's) development as a rookie, and his familiarity with Coach (Doug) Pederson's offense was instrumental in installing our system last season."
