I don't know why not. Drop mays and DJ. It's really a no brainer. Hey are contacting pretty much every other FA why not Dansby? Obviously it wasn't in the plan at the start cause he wasn't released yet, but you have to adapt and attack

But you're right, if just a depth signing on the cheap then perhaps nothing to get overly excited about. I'm just hoping for an upgrade at the position because I'm skeptical of Irving. He barely got any run at the position last year and now he's going to be the starter? Will have to trust they know what they're doing, but they certainly didn't with Mays.
Yep. I'm going to calm myself down over this as well. After all, JDR played linebacker in the NFL for eleven years and coached LBs for a couple of years in Baltimore. I'm guessing he knows something about the position.

So is Dansby the new "if we don't get him, this off season was a bust" OM meme? Just want to keep up.

I just don't think the Broncos will put a high priority on Dansby, JMHO of course.

Failure to upgrade the MLB position would be IMO

Dansby is a versatile player and a guy who has made an impact wherever he goes. The year the Cardinals went to the Super Bowl he was playing lights out. My best friend is a Dolphins fan and he was quite surprised to see that Dansby was released, but he only knew of the Ellerbe signing then they got Phillip Wheeler. Said he played good last year and was a team leader on defense.

Landing Vasquez and likely landing Knighton will make people content with FA as long as there are no major cock up overpays waiting in the wings.

The draft is it's own beast and how the FO handles Doom is as well, but the free agency period at least isn't looking like a bust - again as long as the FO doesn't do something stupid like giving Mendenhall a multi-year deal or some other stupid ****.

Dansby is a good lber but he is not great. He is about the same quality as DJ.

Don't get me wrong, I would love if we could get him at a decent price. I am only saying, it's ridiculous to even suggest that if we don't get Dansby that the FO somehow failed.

Is it that hard to believe, that they are content with Irving and Johnson? I am as nervous about MLB as anyone else after watching Mays stink it up, but perhaps they have a plan involving the draft and what we already have...that they just aren't sharing with those of us here on the Mane.

If we made no other move, and managed to keep Doom...I would be perfectly content with what we've done pre-draft.

We can still cut some losers (keep Doom) and be more pro-active. Why keep Mays when Dansby is going to command a similar price and is 50x the player? It wouldn't be a fail, but I sure do hope they at least give his agent a call.

They are about the same. Dansby has maybe been to a Probowl or two back in the day I don't know.

It's a little strange that the phins are willing to pay Ellerbe $35m (not sure how much is guaranteed) yet they already had a good MLBer in Dansby. This is how franchises fail IMHO. Dansby is a good MLBer but obviously the phins see something in Ellerbe that Dansby doesn't have. And then the big contract to Wheeler too.

And, let's face it, their success hinges on Tannehill's development.

Ellerbe is younger. They're setting the foundation for the next 5+ years instead of the next couple

Yep, very much so. I really, really don't understand the phins organization. They draft Tannehill in the first which I'm ok with, he's got lots of upside. But they already had Matt Moore on the team. Why not sit Tannehill for his rookie season, let him learn and develop and then start him this coming year? They were paying Matt Moore a lot of cash, and IMHO they probably would have won just as many games with Moore starting as with Tannehill.

Now they are throwing all this money at Ellerbe and Wheeler when their defense is already pretty good with Dansby as the MLB. Why?

They did bring in Wallace to help but is he gonna really help Tannehill?
