Mike Daniels featured on this week’s Sports Illustrated cover

Posted by Wes Hodkiewicz on September 6, 2016 – 11:41 am

160906-sicover-400GREEN BAY — The Sports Illustrated spotlight shines this week on Packers DT Mike Daniels, who is one of four rising stars featured on the regional covers of SI’s NFL preview issue.

The story centers on four rising stars who have taken advantage of the changes in the game to become the best at their positions.

Daniels, a former fourth-round pick who was labeled by some as too small to be an every-down NFL lineman, had 66 tackles and four sacks for the Packers last season.

He also finished third on the defense with 12 quarterback hits and second in total pressures (22). For his efforts, Daniels earned an extension in December and debuted at No. 95 in the NFL Network’s ‘Top 100’ list earlier this summer.

Other players featured on regional covers include Los Angeles DT Aaron Donald, Carolina G Trai Turner, and Houston WR DeAndre Hopkins.

The SI cover featuring Daniels will appear in Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Washington D.C., Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and of course, Wisconsin.

Mike Daniels named Wisconsin’s pro athlete of the year

Posted by Mike Spofford on April 13, 2016 – 10:32 am

Mike DanielsGREEN BAY — Packers defensive lineman Mike Daniels was named the state’s professional athlete of the year at the fifth annual Wisconsin Sports Awards on Tuesday night in Sheboygan Falls.

Daniels was one of four Packers nominated for the award, along with QB Aaron Rodgers, LB Clay Matthews and G Josh Sitton. Milwaukee Bucks star Khris Middleton was the only other nominee. The award is voted on by a panel of media members in Wisconsin.

Daniels led the Packers defensive line in both tackles (66) and sacks (four) in 2015. He also had his first career interception, and he signed a multi-year contract extension before the season ended.

Since coming to the Packers as a fourth-round draft pick out of Iowa in 2012, Daniels has steadily developed into a respected defensive leader on the team and late last season he spoke of being an even more influential leader after signing his new contract.

Four Packers awarded game balls vs. Jets

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 15, 2014 – 3:00 pm

Game balls went to WR Jordy Nelson on offense, DT Mike Daniels on defense and K Mason Crosby and LB Andy Mulumba on special teams.

The Packers coaching staff has awarded game balls to four players for their performances in the 31-24 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday.

Game balls went to WR Jordy Nelson on offense, DT Mike Daniels on defense and K Mason Crosby and LB Andy Mulumba on special teams.

Nelson set a career high with 209 receiving yards, including an 80-yard TD that broke a 24-all tie. He became the first Packers player with a 200-yard receiving game since 2004, and his 209 yards tied him for the fourth-highest single-game total in franchise history. Nelson’s 80-yard TD also tied him with Greg Jennings for the most TD receptions of 80-plus yards in a Packers career (four).

Daniels was a disruptive force all game, being credited (press box statistics) with five solo tackles, including two for loss, and a sack. His hit on Jets QB Geno Smith in the second quarter produced a fluttering pass that was picked off by CB Tramon Williams.

Crosby made all three of his FG attempts, including a 55-yarder that was the longest by a Packers kicker ever at Lambeau Field. He has now made 18 straight FGs, dating back to last season. Crosby also kicked four of seven kickoffs for touchbacks.

Mulumba was credited with one special teams tackle but later left the game with a knee injury.
