As NFL agency opened Tuesday, the Arizona Cardinals lost out on a chance to re-sign free agent linebacker Karlos Dansby.

As of 10:25 a.m., the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeted that the Cardinals and Tennesse Titans felt they had lost out on Dansby’s services, and that the Cleveland Browns had emerged as the front runner.

A little more than an hour later, AZCentral’s Kent Somers tweeted that he said he heard the 32-year-old linebacker is headed to the Browns for four years, $24 million. Somers said that Dansby will likely make $10 million in the first year of the deal.

Baltimore Sun reporter Aaron Wilson later tweeted that $12 million of Dansby’s deal is guaranteed, and he will get a $6 million signing bonus.

After Dansby’s departure was certain, members of the Cardinals organization began sharing their thoughts on Twitter.

Darnell Dockett didn’t mince words as he said in a tweet, “**** this free agent ****… I’m going fishing.. I guess I’m just To [sic] damn loyal these days. Smh.”

In his lone year returning to the team that drafted him, Dansby racked up 6.5 sacks, 122 tackles, four interceptions and two defensive touchdowns.
