Per a report from ESPN’s Field Yates, the Buffalo Bills continued their free agent linebacker search by hosting Arizona Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby. The veteran wouldn’t add much to the youth movement but could offer a steady presence for the linebacker-needy Bills.
Dansby’s latest stop was in Arizona where he began his career in 2004. Dansby also tucked another single Arizona season in there in 2013, making the latest stop the third time playing in the desert for the Cardinals. The first pick of the second round in the 2004 NFL Draft was the beginning of things for Dansby. Since then, he’s been remarkably durable, appearing in 212 games. Dansby has made it to a full 16 games in eight separate years. From 2010 to 2012, Bills fans likely recall seeing Dansby the Dolphin twice a season. He has also toured Ohio by playing with the Browns and Bengals.
Dansby had 95 tackles, an interception and a fumble recovery while starting 15 of 16 games last season. During the season he became the fifth player in NFL history to have 40 sacks and 20 interceptions.
Ironically, Dansby replaced Kevin Minter on the Cardinals. Minter was in Buffalo on Monday for his own free-agent visit.
