Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby was asked by reporters to rank himself among the top playmaking linebackers in the NFL.
Suffice to say, Dansby has a high opinion of himself.
“The best,” Dansby said. “The best in the game, by far, man. By far, the best in the game.”
The Dolphins have made a big investment in Dansby’s stature: Dansby, a starter for the Cardinals the last six years, signed a five-year, $43 million contract with the Dolphins this offseason, with $22 million guaranteed.
That contract and Dansby’s own claims will put pressure on him to play like the best.
