Houston (CBS Houston) - Free agency and the start of the league year are just one day away. For Owen Daniels, a new year could mean a new team.

“I guess this is a year for me that’s interesting, because you hear this, you hear that about being here or being a cap casualty,” Daniels said at Andre Johnson’s Inaugural Celebrity Golf Tournament Monday. “It’s that point in [my] career where those types of things can happen and I’m aware of that.”

Daniels, 31, has played all eight of his NFL seasons with the Texans. He’s also due $6.25 million in 2014 and missed most of last season with a fibula injury. But with 385 receptions and 29 touchdowns in a Texans uniform, Daniels hopes to get the opportunity to finish his four-year $22 million extension signed in 2011.

“I’d like to be here and play out my contract and I feel like I deserve that. So, I’m looking forward to having that opportunity.” Daniels said.

Cutting Daniels would create approximately $4.5 million in cap space and $1.75 in dead money.

After eight years in the league, Daniels also understands the NFL is a business. The Texans haven’t approached him about taking a pay cut or restructuring his deal, but if they did, he’d be willing to listen.

“Yea, I’m willing to restructure.” Daniels said. “I think I got some years in the tank and not a lot of tread off my tires last year (with the injury), so I think I got some in me and hopefully they can all be here in Houston.”
