He will be 35 years old in November but Dansby still has some football left in him. Cincinnati will be the fourth stop in his thirteen year and may prove to be the last. Dansby is expected to start on the weak side while Vontaze Burfict serves a three game suspension to start the season. It is unclear what role Dansby will have come week four. There is a good chance he will move inside sending Vincent Rey to the bench but this is not a given. Depending on his role Dansby has the potential to be anything from a solid second starter to mid season waiver fodder in fantasy terms. With his history of production it is hard to believe the Bengals would not find a way to keep him on the field. Dansby has career numbers of 40.5 sacks, 19 forced fumbles, 10 recovered, 19 interceptions and four scores. He has also lit up the tackle columns for 89 or more solo stops in five of the last eight seasons. For those who will insist he is over the hill, note that Dansby had 3 interceptions, forced three fumbles and scored twice for the Browns in 2015. He would be an excellent late round pick up as your fourth or fifth linebacker. (May 27)

Bengals | Donte Whitner being recruited to CIN (Wed Jun 22, 01:11 PM) - Free-agent SS Donte Whitner (Browns) is being recruited by Cincinnati Bengals LB Karlos Dansby to sign with the Bengals.

Our View: Whitner was not brought back by the Browns, but he might stay in the division. The Bengals have an opening at safety that may come down to a battle between the inexperienced Shawn Williams, who did start four games last year and 2015 sixth round pick Derron Smith.
