Former Redskins defensive end Phillip Daniels was named the teams director of player development Friday.

Daniels, who played 15 years in the NFL and was a member of the Redskins from 2004-2010, sat out last season.

We welcome Phillip back to the Redskins family, general manager Bruce Allen said in a statement. His 15 years of NFL experience will be a great asset for our football team.

Daniels played for Seattle and Chicago before joining the Redskins as a member of Joe Gibbs first free agent class in 2004 along with Cornelius Griffin and Shawn Springs among others.

In 201 games, Daniels posted 512 tackles, 62 sacks and 12 fumble recoveries.

A favorite of the media for his availability, insight and honesty, Daniels missed all but five games of his first year with the Redskins (2004) and all of the 2008 year because of injuries. His best season was 2005, when he had eight sacks to help the Redskins reach the playoffs.
