What are the odds that Dansby and Mclain are both fins next year and what would the addition of those to cats plus dumervil do to our defense?

I like the odds of us getting both, but im not sure if they would want to draft a ILB at #12 and pick up Dansby in FA. Im pretty sure they want Crowder as at least the #2. But you never know, im sure the FO will upgrade any position they can if oppurtunity presents itself.

Our D would be extremely upgraded, I think it would be better with E.Thomas at FS though. We need the coverage of Dansby and a GOOD FS. Dumervil is just icing on the cake if he takes Joey Porters spot.

i think it would be best if we got them both to have them both play ILB

i agree, but we need crowder to stuff the run the guy is a tackling machine, he cannot cover worth a dam, but could stop the run

i dont know if i would consider him a tackling machine, if he was a Tackling Machine he wouldnt miss to many tackles and he would have had more then 51 tackles he is decent and would be a good #2 ILB but IMO that is it

If we sign Dansby I think that we go after a rush LB or a DT in round one. This also means we'll likely look to trade down. Williams and Jerry Hughes would likely be around around pick 20 and Miami could pick up an extra 2nd and draft Spikes if ILB is still viewed as a need, though i'd rather see us go TE and WR in round 2, if we sign Dansby and go defense in the 1st round.

i agree, he is only good for the 2ilb, at best, the other ilb has to be able to cover, because lord knows crowder cannot

I do know Dansby wants to come here, so it's a matter of if Bill, Jeff, and Tony want to pay him.

Crowder ain't a tackling machine. He's good for 1 thing... taking out the fullback in the backfield or putting the first hit on the ballcarrier.

Dansby is going to be 29 mid way through this season. Do you really see the Holy Trinity splashing out FA bucks on someone this age?

If they Do, and considering the constant battle Crowder has with his knees, Dansby would be a very good mentor for McClain (hmmm.. am I changing my mind) We could easily pick up Graham (Michigan) or Norwood (So.Carolina) for OLB in the 2nd giving a mix of youth and athleticism along with Taylor and Wake...

I think Dansby is extremely important to get, for one thing he's not restricted like alot of other players on some peoples wishlists. He makes it easier to handle if McClain is not available, Dansby and Crowder would make a good combo inside. Now if McClain is there, Crowder becomes trade bait an extra pick and having McClain and Dansby would be great.

i think the chances of landing both Dansby and McClain are close to 0 %. the odds of McClain making it to #12 are not the best IMO and we would probably look elsewhere at #12 if we got Dansby anyway.

Odds are 1 in 42 that we land both Dansby and McLain.

If he can't fit in Denver, why would he do us any good here?

Denver runs a 3-4, and they are thinking McClain . . . why? My guess would be they think Williams can't cut it as a ILB in the 3-4.

Wow getting Dansby and McClain in FA would be sick . . . tho if we got Dansby in FA, I don't know if we come back with McClain. I think we would give the Crowder/Dansby combo a shot. Probably look at OLB or FS.

DJ Williams resigned with the Denver Brocos. Karlos Dansby should be a target for us this off-season. I said I planned for the Dolphins to lock up Antonio Bryant and Karlos Dansby and if so than we are in good shape come April. There are four special talents that could be available at #12 in CJ Spiller of Clemson, Dez Bryant of Oklahoma State, Earl Thomas of Texas, and Rolando McClain of Alabama. If any of these guys fall to 12 you take them. If more than one of them fall to twelve you make a smart decision on where you think the biggest need is. If we signed Dansby and Bryant, I would say Earl Thomas is the guy; before free agency I have Rolando McClain as the guy

The problem with Karlos Dansby is a) Cards can slap a franchise tag or transition tag on him and another player on their team this year with no cap. b) If you look at the FA market, he's the top ILB so many other teams will be after him

**note in an uncapped year, teams can slap 2 franchise tags on their players.

"an clubs designate additional players in the Final League Year? A: Yes, one additional player can be tagged."
