The Cincinnati Bengals will sign linebacker Karlos Dansby on Tuesday, reports NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport.

Dansby, 34, was released by the Cleveland Browns earlier this month and visited with the Bengals last week. He started all 16 games for the Browns last season, intercepting three passes and returning two of them for touchdowns. Dansby also recorded 108 tackles and two forced fumbles.

In his 12 NFL seasons, Dansby has accumulated 1,210 total tackles, 19 interceptions and 18 forced fumbles.

A second-team All-Pro selection in 2013, Dansby was selected by the Arizona Cardinals in the second round of the 2004 draft out of Auburn.
