Former Cardinals Franchise player Karlos Dansby signed with Miami, a 5-year, $43 million deal, including $22 million guaranteed. At $8.6 million a year, it will most likely be to Beason what Antonio Pierce's contract was to Dan Morgan - a searchlight contract to negotiate with.
Dansby's been a more dynamic, well known player than Beason or Thomas Davis, but is similarly talented to the pair. Davis is expected to get less, having not been a Pro Bowler, and Beason immediately took over as team leader from Dan Morgan (a job he won't relinquish if Jerry Richardson has a say). Dansby's two franchise tags inflate his value a bit, however.
