Cardinals Put Franchise Tag On Ex-Auburn Star

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Cardinals have put a non-exclusive franchise tag on linebacker Karlos Dansby.

The move guarantees the former Auburn Univ. standout a salary of
at least $9.7 million next season, the average salary of the five highest-paid players at his position. It also represents a 20 percent raise over what he made last year.

The non-exclusive tag allows Dansby to field offers from other teams, but the Cardinals may match it or receive two first-round picks as compensation.

The Cardinals can continue to negotiate a long-term contract with Dansby through July 15.
