Buffalo Bills hosting Karlos Dansby on a free agent visit

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Dansby, 31, is coming off of a 134-tackle season with the Miami Dolphins.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that free agent linebacker Karlos Dansby will be spending the next two days making a free agent visit with the Buffalo Bills.

Dansby, 31, was released by the Miami Dolphins in March after the team splurged on free agent Dannell Ellerbe. Still considered one of the better 3-4 inside linebackers in the NFL, Dansby has the athletic chops to play multiple positions, which as we know is a big selling point for Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. He could be penciled in at either middle linebacker or weak-side linebacker; free agent signing Manny Lawson will man the strong-side role.

The Cincinnati Bengals had been courting Dansby up through this past week, but that interest appears to have ended after their signing of veteran pass rusher James Harrison. Dansby has also been linked to the Baltimore Ravens, but only by reporters; we only know of a visit with the Bengals at this point.

If the Bills are able to convince Dansby to join the team, his signing would be not unlike their 2011 free agent addition of Nick Barnett, who put up two productive seasons in Buffalo before his release this past February. The 6'4", 250-pound Dansby set a career high with 134 tackles in 2012.
