The Cleveland Browns have released former Auburn linebacker Karlos Dansby, the team announced Wednesday.
The 13-year veteran had a team-leading 108 tackles, forced two fumbles and picked off three passes in 2015. Dansby has been on three different NFL teams and spent the past two seasons in Cleveland.
“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 statement. “He was a dedicated, hard-working leader of our defense and we wish him the best as he continues his career.”
Dansby played for Auburn from 2000-03 and was drafted in the second round of the 2004 NFL Draft.
The Browns reportedly signed linebacker Demario Davis from the New York Jets to a two-year contract on Wednesday, which helped pave the way for Dansby’s release.
