    So, this is one of our biggest FA signings in a while. So...was it a good deal or not?? Now this is based on what you've seen with Arizona. I sure remember him scoring the game winning TD in the playoffs against the Packers. And we now have a player with Super Bowl experience, and actually did something, unlike Gibril.

    Anyone whose seen more of him should elaborate to us though.

    We know what the terms of the deal was, seems pretty fair overall. Here's some perspective- The Jets gave Bartetta Scott the same amount of guaranteed money last year, and Scott is making just a little bit less than Dansby.[Thanks Phinsider!] Dansby is way better.

    And, any math people, how does this compare to the combined contracts of Porter, Wilson and Ayodele???

    Im no math genoius, but imm almost positive as far as the cap hit each yr, it saves us right around 1-2 mil/yr.

    Not sure how it compares to other players but when the rest of the division is either making moves or trying to make moves, you have to step your *** up and get something done.

    I'm glad the Phins grew a sack and pulled it off

    Not sure that it is possible to determine what a good deal is this year.

    He was the 21st ranked Linebacker in the 2009 regular season. With Mike Nolan I'm expecting him to crack the top 15, and hoping he cracks the top 10! Far better than what we had before.

    This is exciting! I forgot what it feels like to actually make a splash in Free Agency. I hope we do something else.

    I'd call it a solid deal with potential to go down as a great one if he plays as well as he seems to be capable of playing.

    True, but there is still only a limited amount of money the team will be able to spend. I can't say whether or not the team will flirt with that amount, but I'd hate to think somebody won't be on the team because there isn't enough money.

    True, but we don't know what Ross's budget is. Besides, our ILBs sucked so bad last year, the concept of "overpaying" for a quality ILB is meaningless.

    Dansby is a great talent to have on your team but there is so much defensive talent in the draft this year it is staggering. I hope this signing doesn't make the "Tuna Team" blind to what else is out there. What a tremendous opportunity this draft presents to build a solid defense with young talent.

    now we need a relentless pass rusher who disrupts every play
    tired of the we get there sometimes bs
    nolan will want constant pressure
    exactly as the 3-4 should be

    Well if I'm correct so far we're spending less than we did last year? We cleared some $$$ with the 3 big releases today.

    And we're saving money by putting the tender on Fasano and Brown who will be staying. That's the only reason they put the tender on him, it'll save them money and Ronnie knows this.

    Good post, I didn't know he wanted 30. I think this means that he wants to play for Miami, and he wants to be the best Linebacker in the game.

    I didn't think they would pay big money for Dansby, Parcells has been about building through the draft and he certainly has built some good teams in the past. There must be alot of pressure to win now to see a signing like this. I would be really surprised at this point if we don't get Rolle as well. Was initially thinking the opposite, keep building through the draft but if they are going to spend the money then it only makes sense for them to get Rolle as well.

    Edit: Guess Rolle is out so seems like Otogwe or Sharper now if they take Sharper then obviously we are back to the old build throuh the draft plan, I guess Dansby is a young enough piece to the puzzle if they have their eyes on someone in the draft. Should be interesting next couple of days.

    Great deal. You have to spend money sometimes to get playmakers, and we got a big one tonight.

    If the guy can cover a freaking tight end it was a great deal. If he can't were stuck with nothing better than we have. Hopefully having somebody at his caliber next to Crowder will help him look better. Should be interesting, who even know's what Mike Nolan's Defense is going to look like next year. I just hope we arn't going to play WR's 15 yards off the ball like we did all year this year. Lets blitz and get some press coverage and start creating some turnovers.

    I'm glad we got Dansby but...

    Your playmaker had 1 sack,1 interception,1 forced fumble last season...Even Y.Bell had a better statistical season than Dansby with 114 tackles(more than Dansby)1.5 sacks,0 forced fumbles,3 interceptions

    Every statistical category dropped from his 2008 season versus his 2009 season including less tackles,sacks,interceptions,forced fumbles
    DO LESS GET MORE MONEY


    Put things in perspective...
    Zach Thomas averaged 142 tackles a season for 11 years...Dansby averages 50 less tackles a season for his
    entire 6 year career

    Dansby is an upgrade over Crowder and Akin but he is no super star...kinda like 2 am at the local dive after 12 drinks and even the fat ugly ones start looking fine

    Also scored the game winning TD in a playoff game last year. Not to mention, what he's done the previous years.

    Stats can be misleading too. Dansby is a force that makes the players around him better.

    There is another way to look at this. Bell wouldn't have the totals if our LB's could tackle and cover.
    Also Dansby had a far better supporting cast.
    Oh and If you are still there at 2AM people are looking at you the same way.

    I think the big money deal with Dansby is evidence of a feeling of urgency to produce a champion now rather than later. That's a lot of money to pay as the deal almost reeks of desperation.

    Crowder should get the boot too, he was awful last year.

    We'll know when he produces or not until then who can say.

    In coverage, he was 7th best, if you are using PFF. That is a huge thing for us. Against the run he was 21st, which is still way ahead of the man he is replacing.
