Karlos Dansby visiting Bills

Now that linebacker James Harrison has agreed to a contract with the Bengals, Karlos Dansby has to find another place to call home for the 2013 season.

It could be Buffalo. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Dansby will visit with the Bills on Monday and Tuesday. Dansby, who was released by the Dolphins earlier this offseason, previously met with the Bengals but there doesn’t appear to be a spot for him in their linebacking corps now that Harrison has come aboard.

The Bills, who lost Nick Barnett from last year’s linebacking corps and signed Manny Lawson as a free agent, will likely show more three-man fronts under new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine next season. Kelvin Sheppard started at middle linebacker for the Bills last year, but failed to impress in his second NFL season and Dansby would give the team an experienced option to use in place of going with Sheppard for another year.

Dansby doesn’t appear to have any veteran competition for a job in Buffalo, so he should be able to avoid being used as leverage for the Bills to land a deal with someone else.

    He will be used as leverage for drafting a rookie in the 2nd or 3rd round.

    There were a couple dolphins fans that argued Dansby as the best LB in the nfl. Sad to see the best there is just praying for ANY chance to play anywhere

    And when they play Miami, the Dolpgins will run right at him and match him up against Keller to exploit his terrible pass coverage

    Hope they sign him.. He’s a good vet who can show younger players how to be a pro… The guys not going to be an all pro but playing in the middle behind a good D-line he could be a very solid run stopper.

    He wants too much for what hes worth. He will realize that he doesnt have leverage so he will swallow his pride and play for what hes worth

    I think Buffalo should sign Dansby. Give him a 2-3yr contract w/incentives. He would fit right into their Line-backing core.
    Dansby was one of the better run-stopping LB’s in the AFC East last year. He recorded 134 tackles in 2012 and 332 in 3 seasons with the Dolphins. A Veteran that would lead the Defense and could school the younger players on the team. Get it done Nix!

    That pic is of Dansby showing Sean Smith how to pick off the opposing quarterback.

    Hold on, wait…

    Run far far away Karlos Dansby. Stay out of the elephant graveyard of the NFL.

    I like Dansby so I hope if he goes to any team its not the ravens.

    Would love to see him in Oakland, but Im sure his asking price is too high at the moment.
