Karlos Dansby, once the NFL's highest-paid linebacker, says Jets are interested in him
 

 


Karlos Dansby, the one-time richest inside linebacker in league history, has yet to find a landing spot this offseason but has made the rounds.

 

 

One of the most recent visits was to Arizona, where he started his career. The Bills and Bengals have also brought him in. But the 31-year-old linebacker said there are still other teams clamoring for his services.

 

On a radio interview in Phoenix Wednesday, Dansby said the Jets, Texans and Falcons are interested in signing him, too.

 

While the Jets have just recently moved away from an aging inside linebacker, Dansby, 31, may fit in line with their competition-first mantra. Cost, like it has been for all the team's potential free agents this offseason, will absolutely be a factor, but having a talented veteran to back up David Harris and Demario Davis couldn't hurt.

 

Davis insists he's ready to take on a much larger role and move back inside. He's even looking for ways to become more of a leader.

 

Learning from Dansby and David Harris, though, wouldn't hurt.

Jay-Z's RocNation has made their pitch to Geno Smith, according to a report by Pro Football Talk. They are one of a few agencies that are vying for the services of the Jets' rookie quarterback.

I wonder if this will meet Bitonti's approval.

1. He's not younger.

2. He's not faster.

3. He's not cheaper.

4. He's not injured.

I think we're going to pass on this one.

You negativity is understandable but this is just wrong.  Wrong.

No doubt.  He's 31.  He's looking to cash in before its too late.  He's going to the highest bidder, guaranteed.

We need someone proven at linebacker. But this guy is not going to pay for the vet minimum.

Coming off a pretty damned good year and just two years older than Harris, I'd rather sign him to a multi-year deal at 1/5th what we're paying Harris and then cut Harris next year.  I mean, if we're gonna have to have a slower 30+ yo vet, might as well not have one with the worst LB contract in the NFL.

This guy isn't  anywhere near worth giving up a conditional pick next year for.

He can be a nice stop gap for a season. Our LaDainian with a SLIGHTLY smaller mouth.

I could definitely get on board with that.  I'm not a fan of Harris at all.

Tanny didn't understand how compensatory picks worked, just that he couldn't use them to trade up so they where worthless anyway. I don't think we're in a position to compete till next year anyway unlike when we signed Tomlinson. Plus Tomlinson had big time name value so we had to have him. Unless it's somebody who's a real upgrade and beyond just the next year I say we stick to minimum contracts

LT was great for us in the beginning. If Dansby comes cheap (which he won't), then I am all for it. I don't think we will be all that bad this year.
