Arizona linebacker Karlos Dansby will have to wait until next year for a long-term contract.
The deadline for NFL teams to come to an agreement with players who have the franchise tag was Wednesday as sports betting information tells us and the Cardinals did not work out anything with Dansby. "I’m under contract for this year and hopefully, me and the Cardinals can still do something next off-season, like Baltimore just did with Suggs," Dansby said to an Arizona newspaper, “What Suggs got, that’s just amazing. And it’s actually great for me. It puts everything in a whole other realm, really. The sky’s the limit now. I’m blessed to be in this position."
NFL betting info tells us that the Cardinals have said that they will start negotiating with Dansby after this season is completed. "Unfortunately, we could not get close enough to have a meeting of the minds," Arizona general manager Rod Graves said, "However, we see Karlos as a talented linebacker and a member of our core. We’re still hopeful that a long term deal can eventually be achieved."
NFL betting statistics tell us that Dansby led the Cardinals with 119 tackles last season. He gets $9.7 million this season as the team’s franchise player as NFL betting numbers indicate. "The Cardinals told us the gap is just too big this year and that they wanted to see what the market was going to do with the economy," Dansby said.
Dansby is a major player for the Cardinals in their attempt to win versus the NFL betting odds. Dansby is definitely ready to get the season started as online sports betting info shows. "I’m excited to pick it up where we left off and get this team back to where we were last year," Dansby said. "We’ve got the pieces in place and we’re more determined than ever. . . . I know I can be a leader and make guys understand what we’re going to have to do to make it happen again and this time, finish the deal."
NFL odds stats tell us that since the Cardinals did not sign Dansby to a new deal they might have enough money under the salary cap to sign wide receiver Anquan Boldin to an extension. Boldin is under contract for the next two seasons as NFL odds numbers show, so Arizona doesn’t have to do anything but Boldin could still request a trade.
