Karlos Dansby Tried To Recruit S Donte Whitner To Sign With Bengals, Unsure Of Where He’ll Sign

Bengals LB Karlos Dansby tells Alex Marvez of Sirius XM NFL Radio that he has tried to recruit free agent S Donte Whitner to also sign with the Bengals.

However, Dansby admitted that he has no idea of where Whitner will eventually land.

The Rams brought Whitner in for a visit after he was cut loose by the Browns a few months ago. Although, there hasn’t been much buzz about him joining the Rams since then, and the team has also met with Dashon Goldson.

Whitner, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Bills back in 2006. After five years with the Bills, Whitner signed on with the 49ers and later joined the Browns in 2014.

He was in the third year of his four-year, $28 million contract when he was cut loose by the Browns back in April.

In 2015, Whitner appeared in 14 games and recorded 81 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble, no interceptions and four pass defenses for the Browns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 24 safety out of 89 qualifying players.
