Cardinals cut ties with Dockett

DT Darnell Dockett, who was due to make $6.8M in 2015 was released today by the Arizona Cardinals.

DT Darnell Dockett was released today by the Arizona Cardinals. Dockett, who has spent his entire 11-year NFL career in Arizona, was due to make $6.8 million in 2015.

The Cardinals have made it a priority to sign key cogs of the organization this offseason - WR Larry Fitzgerald, coach Bruce Arias and GM Steve Keim - but apparently Dockett wasn't in the team's future plans.

Dockett, who missed just two games over his first 10 NFL seasons, missed the entire 2014 campaign due to injury. He racked up 40.5 career sacks and was thought to be the heart and soul of the Arizona defense for several years.

It appears as if the Cardinals wanted to renegotiate Dockett's current deal but he was unwilling which ultimately led to his release.
