For new Ravens tight end Owen Daniels, the forecast is definitely sunny. He has reunited with former coaches Gary Kubiak and Brian Pariani and said on Friday after signing his contract that he is "really excited" to be one of the newest members of the Ravens.

And if anyone on this team knows forecasts, it's Daniels.

As Sarah Ellison of the the Ravens' Web site points out, Daniels is actually a meteorologist by training, with a degree in atmospheric and oceanic science from the University of Wisconsin. He has said he hopes to turn to a career in meteorology when his playing career is over.

Daniels is entering his ninth NFL season, but the 31-year-old is already on his way to a second career you don't often see from NFL players.

Daniels has served as a guest weatherman with KHOU in Houston, and also did weather spots for the NFL Network. Super Bowl analysis? Daniels had it -- the weather for the big game, that is -- for the Weather Channel during Super Bowl weekend.

Don't be surprised to see Daniels on a TV station near you this fall delivering the tailgating and/or gameday forecast for an upcoming Ravens game.
