Arizona Cardinals Can Start the Countdown with Karlos Dansby

You know the old saying that you learn something new everyday? Well today I learned that the Arizona Cardinals were able to start negotiating with Karlos Dansby and his agent on Monday of this week (12/29). As we know, once a player is franchised, they can't be resigned or extended until after the season, but the one word that is often left out of that statement is that it's the end of the 'regular season' not the end of the team's season.

Dansby had the best season of his career in 2008, leading the Cardinals in tackles and tied for second on the team in sacks, forced fumbles (2) and interceptions. We all know that Dansby saw his buddy Calvin Pace (how will he feel watching AZ in the playoffs this year?) get paid last season and it's expected that Dansby is looking for a similar contract (6 years for $42 million with $22 million in guarantees). We'll get much more into the Dansby situation once the Cardinals finish their season by winning the Super Bowl but for now, pay him or let him walk?
