Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby recently identified four teams for which he’d like to play.
In 2009, he made it known that he’d really like to play for one of those four teams — the Giants.
On Monday, Dansby joined Bickley and MJ of XTRA Sports 910AM in Phoenix, and he said that he hasn’t narrowed down his list.
“To be honest let’s clear that up right now. I don’t have a wish list,” Dansby said. “I’m wide open, you know what I’m saying. There is just too many things out there for me to steer myself towards I just have four teams I want to go to. I just to want to clear that up and make sure you put it out there.
“I’m clearing it up right now, I was asked about those teams,” Dansby said. “I just commented on the defense and the personnel of the teams I was asked about. I’ve been looking at every team and their personnel. I think I’d look good in Indianapolis, who knows? I can look good in any team, actually I can fit in anywhere. And make the guys around me better, that’s the main goal to make the guys around me better, and to have success, and to try to have an opportunity to win the Super Bowl again.”
In other words, there’s only one team on Dansby’s wish list.
The highest bidder.
And that team most likely won’t be the Cardinals. Under the CBA, the third straight use of the franchise tag would require the Cardinals to offer him a one-year guaranteed contract equal to the franchise tender for the position with the highest number. This year, as in every year, it’s the quarterback tender of $16.4 million.
There’s no way the Cardinals pay Dansby — or anyone — more than $1 million per game.
