There have been a lot of questions about the status of suspended linebacker Daryl Washington, and nothing can happen until he is reinstated. His agent told Kent Somers that request to the NFL is coming “in the next week or so,” which will start the clock on the NFL considering Washington’s future. That’s a small part of Kent’s comprehensive breakdown of what is facing Washington and the Cardinals next. It’s a good read.
Whenever Washington is reinstated, his contract picks up where it was essentially frozen last May when he was suspended — meaning in terms of his salary, he will play 2015 like it was 2014, and so on along this contract. Washington did just get paid the $5 million he was owed on his deferred bonus money from pre-suspension. And again, when and if Washington is reinstated, he still doesn’t know if there will be NFL punishment handed down for his assault conviction last year.
