Darnell Dockett announced earlier today that he'd have a "major announcement" on his Twitter at 5:15 AZ time. Rosenhaus confirmed on his own Twitter account that everyone should pay attention to what Darnell had to say. This got quite a bit of national play on profootballtalk and Mike Sando's blog on ESPN.
Lots of things went through my head, and I don't think that any of them were good. Is Dockett going to announce that he is holding out of camp via Twitter? Is he going to demand a trade? Did the Cardinals re-do his contract BEFORE Boldin? None of these options seemed good to me, so I was bracing for the worst.
Turns out Dockett just wanted to announce a meeting he had with the team, and said the following:
"I am happy to announce that after meeting with the team recently, I have full faith and confidence in the Cardinals organization and I am looking forward to a great season. From the first day of training camp and on, I will not let my contract issues distract me or my team from reaching our goals-. I also look forward to playing with my teammates and defending our NFC championship title and I appreciate the support I've received from all my fans this offseason. - WE WILL WIN THE NFC WEST.
FYI to all, No this was not a DREW ROSENHAUSE call or idea, THIS is how I feel and I'm sticking to it. Thanks agan to all the DDOCKETT FANS"
I am really glad to hear that "Fart Box" is going to be in camp, and more importantly, is not so upset with the organization that he'll cause a problem.
So in summary, is this huge news? Not exactly. But in this sloooooowest part of the football year, I'll take it. I'm getting antsy for training camp to start already.
