Different approaches from Dockett, Boldin

Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett’s nickname is “Fart Box.”

And it’s now even more appropriate, given that he recently has emptied the contents of his G.I. tract on the franchise that signs his checks.

“I’m trying to do whatever I can to help my team win, but I’m not doing it for the organization,” Dockett said Thursday, according to the Arizona Republic.  “I’m doing it for
my coach, my teammates, all the veteran guys in here.  That’s it.”

Dockett remains unhappy with his contract, especially since others are noticing how good of a player he is.

“It’d be nice if I got paid like it,” Dockett said.  “But hey,
recognition means a lot, even though I don’t get all the credit I
probably deserve.”

Nothing warms the heart like a public display of humility.

Meanwhile, one of Dockett’s teammates who wants more money seems to be resigned to the fact that the Cardinals won’t be taking a crowbar to Bidwill family vault.

“I let the whole contract talk, you know, to the side,” Boldin said on Sirius Hardcore Radio (via SportsRadioInterviews.com).  “If they get me done, fine.  If not, I guess I have to find a home somewhere else.  But as long as I’m playing football, I’m doing good.”

Boldin is signed through 2010, and Dockett is under contract through 2011.  Both players signed second contracts after getting their careers off to good starts.

    they’ll have good stats, but who cares!?
    that team won’t win the big game – the cards suck the big one!

    Dockett has 8 tackles & 1 sack in 3 games.
    Boldin is averaging under 60 yds per game.
    Their play, so far this year, doesn’t really scream for a contract do-over.

    Boldin has been well underpaid for a while. I do admire the way he has gone about it as it is very frustrating to watch others in your field earn more for producing less. This applies to any job and just because football players make millions doesn’t make it any different …. ok it might make it a bit easier to take, but he still must be very frustrated. The guy is a warrior for that team and they are treating him like crap.
    Fart box could learn a lesson from Boldin and shut his piss mouth

    Boo Hoo. It’s funny how these jackasses bitch and moan about a contract that they took the initiative to sign in the first place. You make unreal amounts of money to play a game when alot of people in this country would be happy just to have a job. Shut up and play football.
