Description: Arizona defensive end Darnell Dockett has reportedly been fined a "six figure" amount for spitting in a teammate's face during last week's loss to the Jets.
Insight: Clearly Arizona's frustrating season has reached a boiling point as teammates are beginning to lash out at each other. Despite his behavior, Dockett isn't expected to miss Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
10/4/2012 8:22:00 PM
Description: Cardinals DE Darnell Dockett (hamstring) is active for Thursday's game against the Rams.
Insight: Dockett is a disrupting force on Arizona's defensive line but he doesn't contribute much in fantasy. He has zero sacks and 10 total tackles in three games this season.
9/1/2010 10:05:00 PM
Description: Mike Jurecki of Xtra Sports Radio (910 AM) reports, via Twitter, that the Cardinals have signed Dockett to a four-year, $48 million contract extension (with $30-$31 million guaranteed).
Insight: Dockett is now under contract in Arizona through 2015. He has 20 sacks over the past three seasons, and has yet to miss a game in six NFL seasons. (
4/28/2010 2:17:00 PM
Description: AZ reports Dockett has reported to the teams' offseason program.
Insight: Dockett has long been looking for a pay raise, and perhaps showing up earlier than usual is a step toward getting one in his estimation. (
2/23/2010 11:39:00 PM
Description: The Arizona Republic reports the Cardinals are unlikely to seriously discuss a contract extension with Dockett before next season starts.
Insight: Dockett is under contract through 2011. Given the Cardinals history, they may not be willing to meet his market value if it gets too high. (
1/18/2010 11:50:00 AM
Description: The Arizona Republic reports Dockett wants to return to the Cardinals next season with a new contract.
Insight: Dockett is under contract through 2011, and despite the fact he probably deserves a raise he seems unlikely to get it, due as much to the uncertainty hanging over the league as anything. (
10/9/2009 10:09:00 AM
Description: According to the Arizona Republic, Houston head coach Gary Kubiak said that Dockett is best player he's seen on film this year.
Insight: Dockett is the main cog in a Cardinals' run defense that is ranked sixth in the league (79.7 yards per game). Steve Slaton may have his work cut out for him this week. (
Cold9/22/2008 9:22:00 PM
Description: Dockett has now gone three games without a sack.
Insight: At least he made a few tackles in this game, I guess. This drought could just be a fluke, but it's more discouraging when you remember that he skipped off-season workouts with the team while demanding a new contract. (Matt Schauf/
