    Sign him up. We need quality ILBs.

    I think I've been saying I hope we sign Dansby since FA started. If not sooner.

    Better sign him. Wade was on 610 today and stated Sharpton is no where near ready for TC

    Let's do it. I really like his 9 PD last year.

    I really want Urlacher, but if we don't get him, I could get behind a Dansby signing, for sure. Either way, I'd like as much flexibility as possible to mix-n-match our LB's to the offense, to best determine how to beat NE this year.

    I've been trying not to get my hopes up all offseason. I wanted to sign him when he first left the Cardinals

    I really can't see Dansby willing to sign a contract we can afford, but if they can make it happen, I'm on board.

    If we can make it work financially I'd be pumped about adding him. The Cards look like the likely team to add him though among that group if it comes to money. Come join a beast defense 'Los and help get the Texans a ship!

    No one else is throwing the money he wants at him or else he'd be signed somewhere already. So I'd say we are in it at least

    Yeah, the Texans won't be able to offer him much of anything $$$ wise and maybe a chance for the playoffs and a ring. But, the Falcons can offer probably more $$$ and a chance for the ring too. It will take a miracle to get him to sign here. Better start praying :bowdown: and living right if you want to get Dansby.

    This is the NFL. If the Texans needed $8M to sign Dansby, they could find it. They can structure a deal.... Flacco is the second highest paid QB in the league (or something like that) & his cap number for 2013 will be less than the modestly paid Matt Schaub.

    But if it doesn't make sense to pay KarlosDansby $8M the Texans won't do it.

    Not a snowball's chance. Clabo's $4.5M drops off ATL's payroll next month, while we barely have enought space to pay our rookies.

    That said, would be nice, though.

    Isn't Dansby a head case?

    Sounds like he'd fit in just fine on this board...if that's true.

    I think it largely depends on his desire to win a championship. This is his last chance to put his talents to use in a championship run. He has unique skills that will likely deteriorate quickly over the next few seasons.

    I don't recall ever hearing anything bad about him.

    Dansby isn't a headcase. I wanted him as soon as the draft was over and we didn't get an ilb. He is similar to the Bradie James signing, only he can still play.

    Nah, he apparently wants a nice chunk of moolah to sign. Buffalo is kind of dumb letting him leave without a contract.

    Or they know something we don't, it does raise a red flag to me that needs to be checked out .

    Maybe he just won't go to a team like the Bills or Jets without getting paid handsomely. If it were my last contract, or last big contract, I would want alot more money to play for the Bills than the Falcons or the Texans.
