METAIRIE, LA (AP) - New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis says the club has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with backup quarterback and place holder Chase Daniel.

Daniel, a former Heisman trophy finalist with Missouri, has been with the Saints since 2009 and has been Drew Brees' backup since 2010.

During the past two seasons, the 6-foot Daniel has appeared in 29 games, mostly as a holder. He also has completed six of eight passes for 45 yards.

He relieved of Brees in three regular season games last season, completing four of five passes for 29 yards, including one completion on a fake field goal attempt.
