Well now, that would be interesting, wouldn’t it?
Dansby, meanwhile is saying his “gate is wide open.” To me, that’s again code for, “I am receptive to whichever team wants to pony up.” Could that be the Cards? It certainly would get some Cards’ fans off the ledge. In that case, it’d be a good thing if ‘Los didn’t hurt his ACL getting off the plane today.
Safety Antrel Rolle, meanwhile, is visiting the New York Giants first, while Kent Somers is reporting backup safety Matt Ware is visiting an unnamed NFC West team. Possibly losing two safeties? Yikes. A-Dub could get lonely back there. All along, GM Rod Graves said Rolle was a top priority to keep, especially with Dansby likely out. Maybe, given the markets developing for the two, the Cards realize they have a better chance/are more willing to invest in Dansby going forward. I’m sure they’d like to keep at least one. Given that most everyone — including me — felt Dansby was gone for sure, it’d be quite the development if he stays.
Then again, that’s no lock — and again, another reason while you can’t get emotional with the ups and downs of free agency. You wait until after the draft, see what your team’s roster has, and — if you are a fan — then get upset if you think things look bleak. But on March 5? Not so much.
