Browns to sign most underrated defensive free agent

Cleveland Browns look set to acquire Karlos Dansby from the Arizona Cardinals as the AFC North team are ready to pounce on the linebacker once NFL free agency opens at 3pm EST.

Dansby is arguably the most underrated defensive player in the NFL after ten seasons of constant quality on the field.

He spent his first six seasons in the NFL with the Arizona Cardinals before moving to Miami for three years.

In 2013, he was back at the Cardinals and it was his best season statistically by far.

Having started all 16 games during the regular season for only the fourth time in his career, Dansby picked off four passes, forced a fumble, and had 19 passes defensed.

The final stat in particular shows that Dansby can still be a dominant player even at the age of 32.

The Browns are certainly in the market and the deal would make perfect potential sense because of the fact that Cleveland let go of D'Qwell Jackson.

It's understood that Dansby was offered around $10 million on a two-year deal by the Cards, but they now appear out of contention.

Jackson has set the free agent linebacker salary bar by signing a $22 million four-year deal with the Colts.
