According to Palm Beach Post Karlos Dansby is yet another target for us in free agency . This seems like a bit of a stretch to me considering how strong we are at linebacker . Pisa Tinoisamoa played well at our strong side linbacker position and would be a cheaper , better option . So why are we interested in a linebacker that will cost in excess of 30 million in guaranteed money ? Could this be our plan for the future or could this be an overcompsenation to make the front office look better to the public for the hike in ticket prices ? Either way is Dansby really what we need ? We already have 2 linebackers making alot of money do we really want to make it 3 ? Heres the link to the story .
My opinion here is this is just wild speculation by the media . While Dansby is a great player he is not what we need to get better as a team . Defensive End and Free Safety are more pressing needs and last I checked Dansby is neither . Could Dansby be the future replacement for Brian Urlacher ? Now thats the only way signing him would make any sense . Dansby is a good middle backer and drops into coverage well . Outside of that this would make very little sense .
Also in a related story its looks like we may spend some money this free agency season . Yea I know us spend money yea right , but according to the Chicago Sun Times the McCaskey's have given Jerry Angelo permission to spend at least 25 million in up front money to secure any free agents we might persue . Could this be ? Is this really going to happen ? Well the buzz around the combine is that we will , I repeat , we will be big players in free agency . If you ask me we really need to be because we've got holes to fill and no draft picks to fill them . So Peppers is seeming like a real possiability . Cross your fingers folks but we may be serious about building a winning team ! Heres the link to the story .
