2014 NFL Free Agency: Browns Sign Linebacker Karlos Dansby To Four-Year Deal

New, comments

The Cleveland Browns have a ton of salary cap space this year and are looking to be active early and often. Before the actual signing period began on Tuesday, they signed a veteran linebacker.

Say what you want about the Cleveland Browns, but they are set to wheel and deal this spring. With one of the top dollar amounts in cap space, the team is already looking to be splashy before the gun has sounded to officially start the free agency period. Reports have safety Donte Whitner heading to the Browns almost as soon as free agency begins, but they landed another big-name free agent defender.

According to Kent Somers of azcentralsports, the Browns have signed veteran linebacker Karlos Dansby to bolster their already stout defense.

The move comes on the heels of the release of D'Qwell Jackson, who was a Browns mainstay on the defense. Dansby has been a solid pro, making the Pro Bowl last season while with the Arizona Cardinals. He is entering his eleventh season and will turn 33 years old in the middle of this season. Along with Dansby and potentially Whitner, the Browns are also said to be inquiring about Buccaneers cornerback Darelle Revis.
