After three years with the Dolphins, Dansby is headed "home." The Cardinals announced Friday that Dansby agreed to terms on a one-year contract. Dansby will help take snaps while Daryl Washington is suspended to start the year and eventually could wind up starting next to Washington.

The Cardinals have quietly enjoyed a nice offseason, and Dansby fits right in. He's no longer at the peak of his career, but he adds quality veteran leadership and intelligence to a talented defense. The New York Jets and Buffalo Billspreviously showed interest in Dansby.
