Dansby played last season for the Arizona Cardinals, the team that drafted him out of Auburn in the second round of the 2004 draft, where he started all 16 games, making 121 tackls, 6.5 sacks, 4 interceptions, 1 forced fumble, one fumble recovery and two touchdowns.
In between his two tours with the Cardinals, Dansby played three seasons with the Miami Dolphins where he showed the versatility he showed last year with the Cardinals where he is able to play the pass as well as the run and should be a fine fit in the Browns underrated defense.
