If they wanted to, they couldn't sign him to the practice squad unless he cleared waivers.
Basically, if any player with less than four years experience is cut they go to waivers, and teams can pick that player up off of waivers, with the team with the worst record in the previous year getting first dibs, and going down from there. If a team picks up a player off of waivers they can't put him on their practice squad, as by rule they have to open up a spot for him on their 53 man roster. If a player clears waivers he is free to sign onto a team's practice squad that he wants.
Long story short is that if Daniels doesn't clear waivers he has to be put on someone's 53 man roster, and if he does clear waivers, he's most likely just going to be a FA or be resigned to the 9ers practice squad.
