Deal Between Cardinals and LB Dansby Before Deadline Seems Unlikely

The Cards entered the 2009 offseason looking to make sure they wrapped up franchised LB Karlos Dansby. Problem is, the deadline to get a deal done with Dansby is fast approaching, and it appears that it’s not going to get done.

The Cardinals official website reports that it’s looking more and more that a deal is not going to be reached:

The deadline to get franchised linebacker Karlos Dansby a contract extension comes in just a few days. The chance a new deal is reached by then is unlikely, general manager Rod Graves acknowledged Friday.

“We still hope to reach an agreement on a long-term deal with Karlos,” Graves said. “But there is a considerable gap in our positions.” Without a deal in place by July 15, Dansby can’t sign a long-term contract with the Cards until after the regular season ends.

If the two sides don’t get a deal done, there’s going to be plenty of talk all season about the future of Dansby, and the future of him in a Cardinals uniform.
