Oh yeah and he's 28 years old, so he's not nearly as old as guys like bruce smith, deion sanders, jason taylor, etc that we have brought in from the past as FA's.
Yeah man I don't mean to say Dansby would be a bad move. He's an upgrade over Rocky. My thinking is he's not a huge upgrade and we've got serious needs elsewhere. Realistically we get just 2 starters from the draft (I hope starting book-end tackles) and maybe a third in a gem RB Shanny develops. All the other needs then have to be addressed in FA.

...personally I think FS is a far greater need than LB this off-season. Landry makes a terrible last line of defense and I doubt Moore can be that guy right now. Some think Berry might fall to us so I guess that would/could fix the FS issue; however I still think a franchise LT is a better value @ 4.

...and if Haslett really does go to a 3-4 regularly we have to make changes on the DL. Basically nothing fits based on the current roster unless we get lucky w/ some guys developing fast. Big Monty hasn't shown shit to be a dominant nose tackle. Unless Jarmon or Lorenzo becomes a stud overnight we don't have a LDE in the 3-4. Finally who knows how Phat Al will respond to a new scheme. I never saw the wisdom in going 3-4 because it potentially requires a lot of roster changes to the defense, when our offense is one of the weakest in the league and needs an infusion of talent regardless of scheme. Shanny/Allen's moves on Haslett and the defense have me worried.

Everyone always says they're interested in the Redskins. It's well known that agents often encourage their players to say it to raise their potential value.

But I believe the Redskins are interested, strongly interested, in Dansby this year and Dansby is actually a bit interested in the Redskins.

Don't have anything to base this on really, but I can see Dansby in B&G

With the team's history of doling out ridiculous contracts, who wouldn't be interested in coming here?

Wasn't it L.Coles that said he came to Washington to "get paid?"

Anyway, all that aside, I'd love to have Dansby in B&G.

ESPN insider quotes him from a Sirius radio interview as saying the Chargers, Dolphins, Giants and of course the free-spending Washington Redskins top his wish list.

Cardinals will not place franchise tag on Karlos Dansby, according to team source

The Cardinals are prepared to let linebacker Karlos Dansby test the open market in free agency this year and will not place the franchise tag on him for a third consecutive season, a team source confirmed Thursday.

That does not, however, mean Dansby's days with the franchise are over. The Cardinals will monitor the situation when free-agent offers are allowed to be made and then decide then if they wish to make an offer of their own.

The team appears to be gambling that Dansby won't command as much as a free agent as he would as a franchise player, which could be as much as $16 million guaranteed. If we go 3-4, Jarmon may have to switch to OLB.

Dansby regularly has led the Cardinals in tackles, but this past season produced only one sack, one interception and one forced fumble
.

In a 51-45 wild-card playoff victory over the Packers, however, Dansby was a force. He deflected a pass that led to an interception, caused a fumble and recovered and returned another fumble for the winning score.

Dansby, a second-round draft pick
by the Cardinals in 2004, is said to be eyeing a contract that guarantees him around $30 million. Teams that have been linked to possibly having interest in him and vice versa include the Dolphins, Giants and Colts.

Dansby, who was unavailable for comment, has said on numerous occasions he wouldn't rule out re-signing with the Cardinals.

The Cardinals also are continuing negotiations with coach Ken Whisenhunt concerning a contract extension, although no new information was available Thursday.
$30 million? Maybe not, but he WOULD help the LB position tremendously and allow us to use another draft pick on the O-line since LB would be covered through FA.

If we upgrade the LB corps in free agency, i'd much rather go after Dansby. He's twice the player that Peppers is - and will come at half the cost.

True that.

Justin Smith would be a nice pick up as a 3-4 DE. He's a hustle player with size and a resume to back it up. He could be available. I really think there's going to be a lot of options out there because teams are going to want to shed contracts.

Oh no, nothing like that. Smootsmack had been lobbying for Smith for a year or two before he became a free agent. Then the 49ers swooped in and offered him a deal. Smootsmack felt so bad and depressed that he only banned 8 people that day.

Justin smith is making a lot of money (in the third year of a 6yr/45 Mil deal with 20 mil guaranteed) and could be a cap-casualty. Aaron Smith,33, has 2 years left on a 5 yr/25 mil deal but he could too the way the Steeler cycle defensive players in an out from year to year. He plays DE in a 3-4.

If it comes down to money, we'd outbid both teams with ease.
