Cardinals Darnell Dockett has said he’s not sure if he’ll be with the team next season. Dockett was fined $200,000 for conduct detrimental to the team following an argument with teammate Kerry Rhodes during a loss to the New York Jets.
When recently asked about the fie in an interview, Dockett had these comments:
“It was shocking. ‘Man did it come to this?’” Dockett said. “I guess they felt that’s what they had to do or whatever. I felt that it was unfair, I spoke on it, I felt it was out of my hands and I’m not really worried about it. I have a process going on.”
As to his future with the franchise, he added:
“I have no idea,” Dockett said. “First of all I’m very thankful that the Arizona Cardinals have given me opportunities. … If I’m not wanted somewhere then I will be happy somewhere else or however that situation may go down. To all the Cardinals fans, this was not my idea of me being traded or people thinking I might be traded and I came up with this or I said this. I never said that, but at the end of the day I’m never going to be anywhere I’m not wanted or I’m not going to be somewhere I’m treated unfairly.”
This season has seen Dockett post his lowest sack totals in six years and his second lowest career tackles. This season also saw Dockett benched instead of his usual starting role when the Cardinals played the Seattle Seahawks.
