Linebacker Karlos Dansby is one of the latest cap casualties of the 2013 offseason, as the Miami Dolphins announced on Wednesday morning that they have cut the 10-year veteran. Dansby was signed through the 2014 season, so many believed he would be cut after the upcoming year. The Dolphins instead decided to clear some cap space now in an attempt to keep getting younger. Many veteran players who are cut are taken by surprise, but Dansby reminded us on Wednesday that it’s always a good idea to keep your cell phone handy when the free agent period begins. During an interview with Sid Rosenberg on 640 AM in Miami, Dansby said he found out about his release in an unfortunate manner. Dansby said to @sidrosenberg he missed Jeff Ireland’s call while working out, then found out by text message & watching ESPN that he was cut — Ben Volin (@BenVolinPBP) March 13, 2013 Hey, at least Ireland attempted to let him know first. Stories like this haven’t exactly given the Dolphins GM the best reputation, but he tried. Rosenberg said that Dansby sounded “hurt” by the fact that he was cut. The 31-year-old said he truly had no idea he was going to be let go. “Not one indication, not a hint,” he said, via Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post. “It was all, ‘Let’s get ready for the next season.’ I’m not angry with the organization. I know it’s business. … I was expecting this after this season, though.” I’m sure there are plenty of players around the league who have felt the exact same way over the past few weeks, and there are probably more to come. When it comes to making business transactions, no player is off-limits. Related posts: Karlos Dansby: Tim Tebow Beating Dolphins Was the Work of God Karlos Dansby: ‘I’m the Best.
