Daniels is great… now what’s next?

Daniels is great… now what’s next?

Just throwing names out there as they become available.  The latest one, according to the Indy Star (via FanHouse), is Marquis Daniels.  He has a $7.5 million team option… which the team will not pick up.  So the 6’6″, 200 lb Daniels is now available.  I’m not saying we should or shouldn’t sign him.  I’m [...]
