Report: Browns and Karlos Dansby agree to four-year deal

Per a report from Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, The Cleveland Browns are reportedly working on a four-year deal with free agent  linebacker Karlos Dansby. Kent Somers reportedly is “hearing” the Browns’ and Arizona Cardinals free agent have the details worked out for a four-year deal worth $24 million, with $14 million guaranteed.

 

Multiple reports have surfaced as the new league year inches closer (4 p.m.) and the Browns’ have be reported as a serious suitor for several free agents to include Dansby.  NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that the Browns’ had become the top candidate to land Dansby, who is projects to fill the vacant inside linebacker position in the Browns’ 3-4 scheme.

In my opinion Dansby is a perfect fit for the Browns’ scheme at the right price. Unfortunately if the reports are accurate the Browns’ overpaid for the aging linebacker, and gave him a larger contract then what the Indianapolis Colts paid LB D’Qwell Jackson (4 yrs, $22M/ $11M Guaranteed). Dansby fills the need at inside linebacker and can be an instant leader on the Browns’ defense, but at that price the Browns’ should have looked to add depth to the position in free agency and addressed the need in the NFL Draft.
