- Dansby confirmed to Mary Kay Cabot that he’s released and added: “It’s time for me to go get a ring.”
This comes shortly after the news that the Browns have signed ILB Demario Davis to a contract, so it appears as though Cleveland is looking to get younger on defense in 2016.
Dansby, 34, was in the third year of his four-year, $24 million contract that included $12 million guaranteed. He was set to make base salaries of $5 million over the final two years of the agreement.
According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Dansby will free up $3.5 million in available cap space while creating $3 million in dead money.
In 2015, Dansby appeared in all 16 games for the Browns and recorded 109 tackles, three interceptions with two being returned for touchdowns, three forced fumbles and six pass defenses.
