Free agent LB Dan Connor worked out for the Falcons.
It's the first we've heard of Connor since the end of last season. A six-year veteran, Connor appeared in six games between the Panthers and Giants in 2013. He'd be a camp body with a shot at cracking the 53-man roster in Atlanta. Thu, May 1, 2014 04:17:00 PM

Panthers signed LB Dan Connor.

Connor, 28, was released by the Giants with an injury settlement last week. He'll provide middle linebacker depth behind Luke Kuechly and could see limited playing time with WLB Chase Blackburn (foot) sidelined. Connor was a third-round pick by the Panthers in 2008 and returns after spending the first four years of his career in Carolina.

Giants released LB Dan Connor with an injury settlement.

The 28-year-old is "healthy and ready to play," per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Connor opened the season as the Giants' starting middle linebacker. He is an effective run defender, but struggles mightily in sub-packages.

Giants placed LB Dan Connor on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

Connor's injury was called a "burner" when he went down in Sunday night's loss, but it's obviously far more serious. The Giants are now left with only Mark Herzlich at middle linebacker, though they claimed Allen Bradford off waivers Thursday. Going on 28, Connor was playing under a one-year, $780,000 deal. He'll likely be with his fourth team in as many seasons next year.

Giants LB Dan Connor exited Sunday night's game with a neck injury.

Connor has a "burner" and is questionable to return. Mark Herzlich has replaced him at middle linebacker.
Sun, Sep 8, 2013 09:40:00 PM

Giants LB Dan Connor was arrested Saturday for possession of an offensive weapon at the Philadelphia International Airport.

Connor had a switchblade in his luggage while attempting to enter the airport terminal. He was released on his own recognizance and is not expected to face any discipline under the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Giants signed LB Dan Connor, formerly of the Cowboys, to a one-year contract.

Connor was a marked man in free agency, drawing visits with the Steelers, Raiders, and Giants. Connor was miscast for the Cowboys' 3-4 defense last season, but he'll return to a 4-3 with the Giants. He and Mark Herzlich will likely battle for middle linebacker duties, perhaps with a rookie from April's draft.
Sat, Mar 16, 2013 01:39:00 PM

Free agent LB Dan Connor will visit the Giants.

New York has hosted a bevy of linebackers over the last three days, including Rey Maualuga, Jasper Brinkley, and Justin Durant. Brinkley signed in Arizona, but the Giants remain interested in the others as middle and strong-side 'backers.
Fri, Mar 15, 2013 02:44:00 PM

Free agent LB Dan Connor left his Raiders visit without a contract.

Oakland has signed two new linebackers over the last couple of days, so Connor isn't needed as much as he was when he arrived for the visit. After not playing all that well in a 3-4 with Dallas last season, Connor is best suited for a 4-3.
Fri, Mar 15, 2013 02:35:00 PM

Free agent LB Dan Connor will visit the Raiders.

Connor was scheduled to visit the Steelers on Wednesday, but he never actually went. The Raiders really could use three new starting linebackers, so Oakland would be one of Connor's better options for playing time.
Wed, Mar 13, 2013 09:37:00 PM

Free agent ILB Dan Connor is expected to visit the Steelers this week.

Coming off an unproductive season as a 3-4 inside 'backer in Dallas, Connor is on the hunt for a chance to rehab his value. The slow-footed yet sure-tackling Penn Stater could be an inexpensive fit next to Lawrence Timmons in Pittsburgh.
Tue, Mar 12, 2013 09:50:00 AM

Cowboys released LB Dan Connor.

Connor was apparently averse to a pay-cut less than a year after signing a two-year, $6.5 million deal. The move frees up over $3 million in cap space for the cap-strapped Cowboys. Connor struggled last season after injuries to Sean Lee and Bruce Carter thrust him into the starting lineup. His market will be slow developing.
Mon, Mar 11, 2013 01:58:00 PM

The Cowboys are working toward a restructured contract with LB Dan Connor.

Connor’s base salary and cap number are $3 million and $4.35 million, respectively. That's steep for a backup, but the Cowboys hope to keep Connor around because of his experience in the 4-3 defense, which new DC Monte Kiffin is installing. The 27-year-old former Panther is currently signed through 2013.
Tue, Mar 5, 2013 10:09:00 PM

The Cowboys have asked LB Dan Connor to take a pay cut.

Mike Florio of Profootballtalk says if Connor declines, then he'll be released. The 27-year-old is set to count $4.35 million against the 2013 cap in the final year of a two-year pact. Connor registered 56 tackles last season, starting eight games.
Wed, Feb 27, 2013 09:02:00 PM

DallasCowboys.com hints ILB Dan Connor could be a salary cap casualty.

The 2012 free-agent signee is due $3 million in 2013. Pressed into starting action after Sean Lee was lost for the season with a toe injury, Connor did not play at a high level. With the Cowboys facing perhaps the league's tightest cap crunch, Connor is likely gone.
