Arizona Cardinals agree to terms with Ed Stinson, 'the next Darnell Dockett'

The fifth rounder joins teammate Dockett on the Drew Rosenhaus team.

The Arizona Cardinals, who announced that they had agreed to terms with their second and third round draft picks last week, have agreed to terms with their fifth round pick, defensive end Ed Stinson, according to multiple reports.

Reporter Aaron Wilson tweeted the contract information on Monday. It is reportedly a four-year, $2.406 million contract, which includes a signing bonus of nearly $187,000.

Kent Somers confirmed the report

The contract comes very quickly after Stinson changed representation. He joined the Drew Rosenhaus team after leaving A3 Sports, his previous representation. He spoke publicly questioning what his agent was doing preparing him for the draft. 

Veteran defensive lineman Darnell Dockett also is represented by Rosenhaus. Coincidentally (or not), Dockett tweeted his plan for Stinson. 

Now, in case you weren't aware, Stinson and Dockett don't really have the same skill set. Stinson is not the explosive player Dockett is, but he is very strong. However, in terms of playing the position, Dockett could help a ton. And Dockett, as he noted, did not have much help when he was a rookie. It makes sense that he would want to show the young guy the ropes. Surely have the same representation doesn't help. 

The Cardinals now have four draft picks that have agreed to terms. Left unsigned are Logan Thomas, Deone Bucannon and Walt Powell.
