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.
