CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have released veteran linebacker Karlos Dansby, the club confirmed Wednesday afternoon.
Initially, reports of Dansby’s release surfaced early Wednesday afternoon. Dansby signed a four-year contract with the team during the 2014 offseason.
“We want to thank Karlos for his service to the Cleveland Browns during the past two seasons,” Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown said in a release announcing the move. “He was a dedicated, hard-working leader of our defense and we wish him the best as he continues his career.”
Despite turning 34 years old in the middle of the 2015 season, Dansby continued to defy age and served as a leader for the defense.
Dansby led the Browns with 108 total tackles, 62 solo stops and 46 assists, forced two fumbles and intercepted two passes against future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning, one of which he returned 35 yards for a touchdown in the overtime loss to the Denver Broncos in October.
Dansby ended the year with three interceptions, two of which he returned for touchdowns.
