Daryl Washington still trying to get suspension reduced

Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington would prefer not to be suspended for the first four games of the regular season.

That’s leading him to take a trip to New York next Monday to meet with officials from the NFL in hopes of getting the ban reduced or wiped out completely. Washington told Craig Morgan of that while his preference is to have no suspension whatsoever, but that he’d be satisfied if it were chopped down to two games.

That’s not likely to happen, though. Washington also said that the trip is “more of a conversation” than a formal appeal and that he isn’t meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell while he’s in New York. He said he’s been trying to meet with Goodell for “about six months” without success, which likely foreshadows his lack of success when it comes to a reductions since that tends to be a necessary step in these matters if there’s any chance for Washington to wind up playing for the Cardinals before their fifth game of the year.

Washington was suspended for a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy and has not offered any explanation for why the penalty was handed down.

    He should be banned 211 games like Alex Rodriguez.

    If we’re banning Darryl for 211 games, then I guess the Seahawks (with all those violations on their PED ranch) should just fold up shop. It’s not like they ever had a drug-free workplace, right? Just ask Brian Bosworth, the hero of Seattle. PEDs? Nah.
