By the end of last season, the Cardinals' defense was one of the NFL's most dominant. Dansby was even generating buzz as a Defensive Player of the Year candidate.
Dockett suggested Dansby won't have the opportunity to repeat that career year in Cleveland.
"When you look at everything we'd done (last) year," Dockett continued, "the sacrifices our defensive line made for that certain individual to make his plays and go into a game not being selfish. Our defensive line doesn't care about sacks and tackles. We come in to do a job, to hold guys off our linebackers so we can be the number one defense.
"I just think that opportunity was to be right here, to really get to the playoffs and make a run for it."
It's hard to find much fault with either player here.
"I'm not going to complain about spilled milk. I wish him well in Cleveland," Dockett added. "At the end of the day, we'll see who's where at the end of the season."
