Off the Turf with Scurf: Owen Daniels

Posted by Nick Scurfield on November 3, 2012 – 2:47 pm

Episode 15 of “Off the Turf with Scurf,” my semi-weekly podcast here on HoustonTexans.com, features Texans tight end Owen Daniels.

Daniels, in his seventh season with the Texans, has 33 catches for 416 yards and four touchdowns through seven games. In the podcast, he discusses how good he feels this season; turning 30 next week; training with Arian Foster and his brother Abdul this offseason and how much it has helped him; staying fresh with a new practice schedule; the “night and day” difference in his play this season on film; his ACL injury in 2009; a stress fracture that shut down his rehab for two months; re-signing with the Texans long-term in 2011; being the last member of his heralded 2006 draft class to still be with the Texans; being one of the longest-tenured Texans; coach Gary Kubiak; his “Turning it Up” touchdown celebration; his two younger brothers; getting engaged last week; his “Dumb & Dumber” Halloween costume; his “Weather Man” nickname and meteorology background; moving from quarterback to tight end at Wisconsin; his quarterback background; his alleged nickname “Ol’ Surehands Daniels” on Wikipedia; how his quarterback experience helps him as a tight end; and his hopes for the rest of the season.
