Darnell Dockett expected to choose between Cardinals, 49ers today

We should have a resolution about the veteran DT soon.

After just a few days, it appears veteran Darnell Dockett will have a contract very soon. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Dockett is expected to make his decision Wednesday as to which team he will play for in 2015.

Dockett is expected to make a decision between joining the San Francisco 49ers, whom he visited on Monday and the Cardinals, who recently released him when the two parties could not agree on a restructured contract. Schefter also reports the Seattle Seahawks and St. Louis Rams could also be in the mix.

The Cardinals reportedly offered him a one-year, $2.5 million contract that could have been worth up to $4 million with incentives. According to Mike Jurecki, those incentives included being active on game day, playing in at least 70 percent of the team's defensive snaps, reaching 10 sacks (he never has done that in his career) and reaching the Pro Bowl -- something he has done three times in his career.

Jurecki also suggests Dockett might return, giving the team a chance to match an offer he might get from another team. According to Jurecki, Dockett and the Cardinals were less than $1 million apart in contract negotiations.

How likely do you think it is that Dockett will return? Or will we see him again, only in a 49ers uniform?
