The Cleveland Browns have become the front-runners to land linebacker Karlos Dansby, according to a report from the NFL Network.

The Cardinals were hoping to keep Dansby with them after a strong season where he tallied a single-season best 113 tackles and came away with four interceptions.

The Titans were also reportedly pursuing Dansby. Both the Titans and the Cardinals believe they are no longer in contention for him, the report states.
