Several of you have pointed out some cryptic comments from Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett, who recently seemed to hint at a possible holdout on his Twitter page by saying that he “never wanted things to get this far.”
But a league source tells us that Dockett, who has been trying to get a new contract for a couple of years, will not hold out of training camp.
Per the source, the Cardinals and Dockett are working on a new contract. Coach Ken Whisenhunt recently said regarding Dockett’s financial situation, “We’re going to get this thing done.”
Dockett is signed through 2011, at base salaries of $3.75 million and $4 million over the next two years, respectively.
