Bills GM Buddy Nix mentioned that they expect to keep in touch with free agent linebacker Karlos Dansby in the coming weeks after he visited with the team on Monday.
“He had a good visit,” Nix told Buffalobills.com. “We liked him. It’s still ongoing. It’s not dead, but it’s not done either.”
Dansby, 31, was released by the Miami Dolphins back on March 12 in order to create cap room. He’s coming off of a very productive season for Miami in which he totaled a career-high 134 tackles. Buffalo could really use some extra help at linebacker, so this could be something to keep an eye after the draft.
We have Dansby listed as the No. 9 player in our Best Available Free Agents list.
The Bills made a big move this offseason to help the team offensively by acquiring Kevin Kolb, but have done very little to aid on the defensive side of the ball. Buffalo has lost George Wilson, Terrence McGee, Nick Barnett, Chris Kelsay and Shawne Merriman this offseason.
Dansby was a second-round draft pick by the Arizona Cardinals in 2004. He spent six seasons in the desert before heading east to Miami, where he spent the last three campaigns. He has 31.5 sacks, 15 forced fumbles and 11 interceptions in his NFL career.
