Welcome back Karlos

Did Karlos Dansby see this (home) coming?

“I’m coming back out and they’re going to see how much I’ve advanced.”

That’s what Dansby said during a conference call with AZ reporters in the week leading up to the Cards game against the Dolphins last season. At the time, it was a game matching up Dansby’s current team against his former team.

Effective Friday, the Cardinals are Dansby’s current team — again.

And again, he’ll be counted on to be a playmaker at inside linebacker, especially in the absence of Daryl Washington. By the way, that begets another former/current scenario. This time, we’re talking about the last two guys to wear #58 — Dansby and D-Wash.

“He’s a dynamic player, what more can I say about him?” Dansby said last September, before going on to do just that about Washington. “He’s a young guy, very athletic, very fast. He reminds me of myself, man, making a lot of plays, he helps the defense get set.”

In fact, whether it’s Dansby replacing Washington at LB (each had 134 tackles last season) or Dansby replacing some of the leadership lost with the absence of Adrian Wilson and Paris Lenon, Karlos had another telling comment last fall about Washington that he hopes rings true about himself when he said: “…they did a great job of getting a guy to fill those voids.”

They just might call that coming full-circle.
