Darnell Dockett On Cardinals: I Won’t Be Where I’m Not Wanted
Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett signed a six-year, $56 million deal in 2010 that was supposed to essentially make him a cornerstone of the franchise for seasons to come.
Things haven’t quite worked out that way for Dockett and the Cardinals. The team is in the midst of a 9 game losing streak after starting out 4-0.
Dockett was asked about the fine and his future on XTRA 910 in Phoenix, and while he will continue to play hard, he has no intention of being somewhere he’s not wanted.
“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.”
“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 theCardinals 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.”
Dockett is the least of the Cardinals problems and if Arizona doesn’t want him, I’m sure someone else will.
