    Karlos Dansby’s Father Says New York Giants “In the Mix” for His Son
    March 13th, 2013 at 7:25 PM
    By Dan Benton

    Karlos Dansby's father, Samuel Dansby, told FOX Sports Floridaon on Wednesday that the New York Giants are among several teams "in the mix to sign" to his son. They are allegedly competing with the Atlanta Falcons and Baltimore Ravens, who have been in complete fire-sale mode since free agency started on Tuesday.



    With Michael Boley having been released and Chase Blackburn getting looks as a free agent in Dallas, the Giants have a clear and glaring need at linebacker. We know it and they know it, which is why they had Jasper Brinkley in for a visit on Wednesday and had Rutgers' Khaseem Greene in for a private workout. It's also why it makes sense they would be in on veteran linebacker Karlos Dansby.

    Drafted in the second-round of the 2004 NFL Draft, Dansby spent the first six years of his career with the Arizona Cardinals before being signed by the Miami Dolphins as a free agent in 2010. The Giants had also pursued Dansby that year before he took his talents to South Beach.

    The now 31-year-old linebacker, who was released earlier this week, had a career year in 2012, collecting a personal best 134 tackles, adding a sack and nine passes defended. And although some will suggest he's lost a step, Dansby proved there's still a lot of gas left in the tank.

    For the right price and the right amount of years, Dansby is likely the best fit Big Blue will find this offseason.

    Dansby at the right price would be awesome. The question is how much is he looking for because he clearly has some left to offer. If you throw in Greene in round 2 and all of a sudden LB would be one of the strengths of the defense.

      He is 31, maybe he wants to be on a contender and will take a Jenkins type deal? Then draft Greene or Brown and our Lb core looks better then it has in years!

        Agreed.. Jaquain Williams, Karlos Dansby, and Khaseem Greene is a nice 3LB's to head your core... I"m intrested in James Anderson released by Carolina and i like Jasper Brinkley as a 2down run stopper and thumper as well..

          Rutgers Linebacker Khaseem Greene Will Workout for New York Giants
          March 13th, 2013 at 2:35 PM
          By Dan Benton
          Not even 24 hours after Giants 101 sat down with Rutgers linebacker Khaseem Greene for an exclusive interview, the youngster is on his way to the TIMEX Performance Center to meet with the New York Giants.



          "Honestly, my expectations are very high," Greene told Giants 101. "I expect to go on the first day and in the first round. Whether it be late or mid, I think I'm a first-round caliber player. But at the same time, wherever I go, all I need is the opportunity to get into somebody's camp an show them I can play football."

          There's not much to add to what Paul covered yesterday, but keep in mind that Greene will be appearing with his teammate, Jawan Jamison, at RedZone in Sayerville, NJ. on March 14th from 7-9 PM. For more information, check out the event page at Sports Fan Promotions.

              Maybe.. I think Dansby will be priced outta our range.. I really hope James Anderson draws some interst from our FO.. I'd be excited to have a Williams Greene Anderson starting trio as well.. Not as physical a bunch as you'll ever see, but ultra active and can get to the sideline and we'd probagbly have more impact plays from lB's then we have in yrs...

                Well u should be, as he was one of theu best LB's and defensive players in the country this past yr.. Hence why hes projected to go in the 2nd rd, which is nothing to do with potential and upside but for what he did on the field...

                  I heard the guy from the National Football Post on NFL Radio and he said that he had real concerns about Greene's football instincts.

                      What'd u watch with your eyes closed? Get out of here with this cr@p.. He was a beast and a dominate figure in almost every 2012 game. Im not sure what there isnt to like about Greene, as he fits the protoype of all good LBs in the league and has the stats to back himself up, but I guess we are all allowed to have our opinions. I think he's an awesome 2nd round pick if he's still there. I agree, def not a 1st.

                        I'd love to hear the elaboration on that discussion and reasons why. I've done my homework with Greene and like what I see. Haven't heard too much downside on the kid. If we're listening to reports,I think it was bleacher report who had him listed as the LB to be most successful in the NFL. Just sayin.

                          What I got out of that was that the Giants are targeting a LB prospect in the second round.

                          Dollars to donuts it's going to be Arthur Brown. Why?

                          Greene is a WILL prospect and we have our starting WILL (JWill) and his backup (Paysinger) already on the team. Greene is fairly maxed out in size and doesn't shed blocks which makes him a no-no for the SAM and MIKE positions (both of which we need).

                          Arthur Brown can play both the SAM and the WILL and is projected to go around the same time in the draft as Greene is (mid-late 2nd round) and is (by most) rated slightly higher than Greene.

                          Dansby would be a great addition no matter what we do in the draft. A VERY solid two year catch.
                          I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

                            Bleacher Reports are a joke.

                            Just stating what I heard. The guy that gave the opinion was a former scout for more than one NFL team. Admittedly, I don't know if it's a legitimate concern or not though . . .

                              Upsides and downsides.

                              Basically Greene is a slightly smaller version of Ogletree with the same upside and the same downside.

                              Like Ogletree, Greene is a converted Safety and is good in pass coverage and has great range.

                              Like Ogletree, Greene can't shed a block to save his life and avoids blockers rather than stacking-shedding (a prereq for a MLB).

                              Like Ogletree, Greene has a ton of highlights.

                              Stop looking at highlight films (anyone looks impressive when you're only seeing their best).
