Arizona Cardinals reach agreement with Karlos Dansby

The veteran is coming back for his third stint in the desert.

San Francisco 49ers v Arizona Cardinals

Who says you can’t go home?

For the third time in his long and illustrious career, Karlos Dansby is a member of the Arizona Cardinals.

This time, on another one year deal pending a physical.

The question becomes... Is Dansby the best inside linebacker on the Cardinals again once he passes his physical?

The Cardinals needed help at linebacker, as Deone Bucannon is the only experienced player at the position for the Cardinals at this time. They could have brought back Kevin Minter or Sio Moore, but clearly they were looking to upgrade from those two.

Enter Dansby, who at 35 graded out worse per Pro Football Focus than Minter did in 2016, but the questions remained on Minter.

With Dansby, you are getting an older player who is a good two way linebacker who can maybe mentor a player with his same build and physical abilities, looks at Zach Cunningham and Haason Reddick.

Welcome back, Los.
