Report: Browns likely to make a run at Karlos Dansby

Well, now we know why linebacker Karlos Dansby hasn’t accepted a two-year offer worth $10 million to $12 million to stay with the Cardinals.

Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports that the Browns are likely to pursue Danbsy once free agency opens at 4:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday.  Dansby, who at age 32 is nearly two years older than former Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson, would replace Jackson (now with the Colts) in coach Mike Pettine’s defense.

The Browns may have competition beyond the Cardinals for Danbsy.  Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that the Titans also are interested in Dansby.  During his first stint in Arizona, he played for new Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Dansby has enjoyed a significant career rebirth in the last year.  In 2013, the Dolphins cut Danbsy loose after signing Dannell Ellerbe away from the Ravens.

    This guy is a leader everywhere he goes. Any team that signs him instantly gets better. Yah that Ellerbe thing worked out huh dolphins?

    What free agent would willingly go to the Browns?

    Dansby is one of the better coverage linebackers making him more effective than DQuell

    The Cleveland Browns are only two wide receivers, a running back, a guard, a tackle, two linebackers, and a defensive tackle away from being a 9 win team.

    6 years in a row with at least 11 losses and same story every year. Browns are team to watch out for. Ton of cap room. Yet every year they lose at least 11 games… 7 in the books

    They don’t need a defensive tackle.

    Buyer beware!

    Bill Polian ranked Dansby as a “C” category FA which means less than $2MM per year and less than 2 years. He was WAY off!

    Much respect to Karlos, but if this happens… there’s an entire doctorate in journalism going on in Cleveland.

  11. doctorrustbelt says: Mar 11, 2014 9:29 AM

    You’re right, solnosky.

    Do they need more than two linebackers and a safety?!?

    Why were they 18th in RUSH Defense?!?

    Dansby is too smart a player to actually sign with the hot mess that is The Factory of Sadness.

    Use them as a bargaining chip?… absolutely. But actually sign with them? NOT GONNA HAPPEN.

    Dansby will be the classic case of a guy chasing dollars vs winning…Good offer from Cards (I don’t agree with) … Dansby is at 20 watt bulb in a 100 watt socket.. Glad he’s got football talent

    adding a older player nearing the end of his career,leadership maybe ,speed doubtful.

    We’ll see if its winning vs money with Dansby. If he takes a better offer in Cleveland, then it’s about the money. If he stays in AZ at 6m per… then it’s about being dominant at his position and a chance to go to the playoffs again.

    Since when is Cabot ever right about anything?

  17. martinslunchtray says: Mar 11, 2014 2:24 PM

    Better coverage??? Ask ANY TE that he played against while with Miami!
