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.
