The Cardinals officially signed Dansby to a one-year contract Friday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dansby will thus be making his third go-around with the Cardinals, after manning LB with the team from 2004 through 2009 and again in 2013. On this occasion, he's the leading candidate to man inside linebacker next to Deone Bucannon (ankle), as both Kevin Minter and Sio Moore have hit the open market. Dansby has been highly productive throughout his career, notching at least 100 tackles in seven of the last nine seasons, but his durability may be the most noteworthy aspect of the 35-year-old. Out of a possible 208 career contests, he's missed just 12 outings, including four total over the last six seasons.

Dansby has agreed to terms with the Cardinals, pending a physical, the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 35-year-old Dansby is set for a third stint with the Cardinals, presumably on a one-year contract. He played for Arizona from 2004 to 2009 and then again in 2013, with his career also including stops in Miami, Cleveland and (most recently) Cincinnati. Dansby only started seven of his 16 games in his lone season with the Bengals, yet still managed to top 100 tackles (114) for a seventh time in the past nine years. He has 10 straight seasons with 93 or more tackles, and he's played at least 12 games in each of his 13 NFL campaigns. Dansby figures to replace free agent Kevin Minter as a starter at inside linebacker, giving the reliable veteran a shot to reach triple-digit tackles yet again.

Dansby tallied 10 tackles in Saturday's 12-10 loss to the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Dansby has recorded at least 10 tackles in two of the last three weeks, and he's also reached double digits in stops five times on the season. Although he's been inconsistent this season, he now has 103 tackles on the year, and the 35-year-old continues to play at a high level, which has made him an upside IDP option.

Dansby registered 11 tackles Sunday against the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Dansby just came off of a four-week stretch in which he recorded just 16 tackles with his strong Week 7 effort. However, this was the third time he had posted double-digit stops on the year, so his production wasn't a fluke. The veteran has had at least 103 tackles in each of his last six full seasons, so it's reasonable to assume that he's back on track after his recent struggles, making him a borderline weekly option in standard IDP leagues.

After recording double-digit tackles the first two games of the season, Dansby had just one tackle in Sunday's loss to the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Dansby's only silver lining was a fumble recovery, but for those that picked him up after his first two weeks came up short, and now Vontaze Burfict is returning from his suspension.

Dansby recorded 10 tackles Sunday against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Since coming over from the division-rival Browns, Dansby has started his Bengals career be registering double-digit tackles in each of his first two games. Based on the small sample size, he looks to be a player to target in IDP leagues.

Dansby is on track to open the season as Cincinnati's starting SAM linebacker, the team's official website reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Vontaze Burfict suspended for four games and A.J. Hawk released Tuesday, the Bengals likely plan for Dansby and Vincent Rey to flank middle linebacker Rey Maualuga early in the season. 2015 third-round selection Paul Dawson should also be in the mix for snaps, but it's not out of the question that Dansby could earn a three-down role. The 34-year-old recently signed with Cincinnati on a one-year contract worth up to $2 million, with a $700,000 signing bonus, according to ESPN's Coley Harvey.

Dansby is signing with the Bengals, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Released by the division-rival Browns a couple weeks ago, the 34-year-old Dansby may have to compete for snaps in Cincinnati, despite recording 108 tackles and three interceptions last season. At the very least, he'll help the Bengals get by while Vontaze Burfict (suspension) sits out the first three weeks of the season.

The Browns have released Dansby.

EDGE Analysis

The 34-year-old Dansby, who recorded 108 tackles and three picks for the Browns last season, will be replaced in the Cleveland defense by fellow inside linebacker Demario Davis. For his part, Dansby expects to catch on elsewhere in short order. "I know a lot of teams are licking their chops right now," Dansby noted Wednesday. "A lot of teams are looking for linebackers right now. One of the best guys to ever play the game is on the market. That's the numbers saying it. Not me saying it, it's just the numbers."
