Main      Career stats      Game Logs      Latest News


The Browns signed Dansby to replace free agent defector D'Qwell Jackson at inside linebacker. Dansby is a veteran of the 3-4 scheme having excelled in a similar role with the Cardinals last season. He will be 33 years old in November so this move by the Browns is not going to be a long term answer, but Dansby should give them a lot of production over the next couple of seasons. Dansby is a strong run defender with good coverage skills. He rarely misses a tackle but his biggest contribution to the Cleveland defense will likely come in the form of big play production. In 2013 Dansby finished with 112 solo tackles for the Cardinals but also kicked in 4 interceptions, 6 sacks, a fumble recovery and 19 passes defended. Those numbers will be tough to repeat but the Cleveland defense should give him ample opportunity to be highly productive. Consider Dansby a solid LB1 prospect with top five potential. (May 27)
