Bengals Hosting LB Karlos Dansby For Visit, Per Reports

USA TODAY Sports

The Bengals are hosting linebacker Karlos Dansby for a visit, according to Ian Rapoport.

The Cincinnati Bengals are hosting free agnet linebacker Karlos Dansby for a visit according to Ian Rapoport.

Dansby, formerly of the Arizona Cardinals and Miami Dolphins is coming off his best season in the league. As the Dolphins' starting middle linebacker in 2012, he racked up 134 tackles and one sack. In his nine years in the league, he has made 885 tackles and 31.5 sacks.

Dansby was a second-round pick out of Auburn in 2004. He is considered by ESPN to be not only the best available linebacker, but the best available free agent period. The Bengals are in need of help at linebacker. They have decided so far not to re-sign Thomas Howard and they lost Manny Lawson to the Buffalo Bills. They have re-sign Rey Maualuga and they have Vontact Burfict. Either Maualuga or Burfict can play middle linebacker, but only Burfict can play WILL.

If the Bengals sign Dansby, it's likely that they won't be looking for a linebacker in the first round of the draft.
