Karlos Dansby had “good meeting” with Cardinals, has interest from others

AP

Veteran linebacker Karlos Dansby was back in familiar surroundings on Wednesday when he paid a visit to the Cardinals as part of his quest for a job after getting released by the Dolphins.

Dansby told John Gambadoro of KTAR that he had a “good meeting” with Arizona, but that no contract was discussed before he left the team’s facility. Dansby also said that “it would be good” to finish with the team that originally drafted him in the second round out of Auburn.

The Cardinals aren’t the only team giving some attention to Dansby, though. Dansby dropped the Falcons, Texans and Jets as other teams that have expressed interest in talking to him. He’s also visited with the Bengals and Bills this offseason, although the Bengals seem like an unlikely landing spot after signing James Harrison while the Bills drafted Kiko Alonso in the second round.

Keeping as many teams as possible in the mix would seem to be the best route for Dansby to land the biggest possible contract. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that Dansby has “been a little picky” in contract talks, which sounds like a way of saying that Dansby’s trying to do just that.

  1. GO to the VIKINGS and be our Middle Linebacker. I think you’d be a good fit and you’d make a lot of plays, especially playing behind Williams and our new rookie Shariff Floyd. You’d have Greenway next to you too…..DO IT!

  2. Dear Jerry Reese,
    Please sign someone instead of making boring small moves. We have a need ad MLB and Dan Connor is not the answer. Thank you.

  3. Still hoping the Bills can sign him. What a great model for the rookies to follow.

  4. i still don’t understand why the vikings haven’t already signed him. didn’t the cards just sign Jasper Brinkley? i guess that could end up being a mistake on his part.

    Come to The Jets!!!

    LOL! Nobody in their right mind wants to go to the jests.

    But fans of other teams go to the Jets’ blogs.

    Must suck to be bored and hateful.

  6. I can’t believe this guy doesn’t have a job yet!

    I would LOVE to have him on the Texans. We’re not sure about Cushing yet, Sharpton is oft injured and this guy had 136 tackles last year.

    He would be a GREAT addition to the Texans.

  7. Be careful what you wish for guys. Don’t forget Dansby is getting up there in age and isn’t quite a fleet a foot as he apparently thinks he is. He IS a brute force but in a league in which the Commissioner is wanting a kinder and gentler game of football, paying the kind of money that Dansby wants may leave your team with a big hit against the cap and not much else. He would be good as a backup on a short-term contract (1-2 years). I don’t see him as wanting to be a “second banana” so what you will be left with is a unhappy dude for the duration.

    Nah its the same reasoning why everyone slows down passing an accident, everyone likes to watch a train wreck

  9. Dansby can go back to making plays in Arizona… ending games with defensive touchdowns, actually holding on to interceptions, etc etc.. unlike his time in Miami. It really was amazing the amount of interceptions he dropped.

    This is like the addict telling himself he can quit at any time. The same sad losers manage to get their super “witty” circus/rex-is-fat/rex-likes-feet jokes on every Jets article and then actually argue that they have lives, and the Jets are the pathetic ones.

    Glad it helps you guys sleep at night. Get some rest, you clearly have another big day ahead. Sad.

  11. Look at the teams as listed as interested. Now who can fit Dansby in there cap? Where does Dansby want to play out of the interested teams? AZ has a leg up cause Dansby would like to end it where he started. Steve Keim isn’t stupid and isn’t going to add a guy out of need and over pay. If Dansby’s desire is actually come home to AZ then team acceptable contract is the only way it happens.

  12. @djjackson81

    Falcons and Texans only teams on that list with SB aspirations….

    Cardinals will be lucky to go 2-4 in their division…

    I would think he wants one more shot at that elusive SB…
