The Cleveland Browns reached agreement with former Arizona Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby. Dansby agreed to a four-year, $24 million deal that includes $14 million guaranteed, according to sources.

That last number is what made his departure a fait accompli. The Cardinals could not justify paying him that kind of money when they have other contracts looming.

But Karlos is going to be hard to replace. He is an excellent tackler, plays well in space, has excellent ball skills, is a leader and, most of all, a great guy.

I'm happy he got paid but sad to see him go. "Los Dirty" is one of my favorite Cardinals of all time but, having said that, I would not have gambled to the degree the Browns did.

Karlos is going to be 33 next season. At some point in time, age and mileage matter.

In the end: Karlos did what he needed to do and the Cardinals did what they needed to do. Welcome to free agency in the Year of Our Lord 2014.

Godspeed, Los Dirty.
