But wait ... The Cards aren't folding on Dansby

As Karlos Dansby is scheduled to visit the Dolphins today it is obvious Bill Parcells and Co. are making him the priority free agent of this offseason.

But ...

Dansby isn't going to simply come in, shake hands with Tony Sparano, and ask for the nearest contract and pen. He is clearly eager to work the system to get the most (meaning cash) out of whatever team is bidding on him ... and now that includes the Arizona Cardinals.

A league source texted me moments ago saying the Cardinals today reached out to the Dansby camp to "talk about keeping him." Translation: The Cardinals are offering Dansby a contract, too.

On another note: Want to update the Chad Pennington situation. The team and quarterback have talked about a one-year, $2.5 million deal with incentives. but as ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported yesterday, he wants a no-trade clause in the deal. And the Dolphins aren't giving that right now.

One thing to remember: It is not a done deal until it is a done deal. It's not done yet.

Keep coming back throughout the day for the latest updates.

[Update 10:55: Well, that didn't take long. Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network is reporting the New England Patriots have an offer in to Julius Peppers. Yikes! Peppers is visiting the Bears today.]
