On the eve of camp

That quiet you hear is not from Darnell Dockett’s Twitter account, although the big tease threw out his firebomb Tuesday night and has held radio silence since (Now Mike Jurecki is reporting Drew Rosenhaus and Dockett will meet with general manager Rod Graves tomorrow about the contract).

More on Nine-0 in a minute.

No, the quiet is the empty building after all the proper equipment has been packed up and shipped up to Flagstaff. The team reports for a meeting tomorrow night. I have to stay here at the facility most of tomorrow, but azcardinals.com will be covering the players and coaches as they arrive and I will get any important info out on the blog and Twitter ASAP. And I’ll start full bore on the coverage Saturday.

I am guessing LBs O’Brien Schofield and Gerald Hayes will start on the PUP list, but since a player can come off that at any point in camp, it’s not some kind of death knell if Hayes is on the list (If he is still there when the Cards carve up their 53-man roster, then that’s a problem). I would guess no one is going to be revealing Deuce Lutui’s current weight either, unless Deuce has had a Biggest Loser moment and wants to tell the world.

The Dockett meeting is interesting but doesn’t necessarily mean anything concrete. The sides have met periodically and Rosenhaus used to do the same for Anquan Boldin and all his Cardinal clients. I am guessing Dockett isn’t going to be told he’s about to get a new deal right now. I wonder if Rosenhaus will try to go the Chris Johnson route in the short term, although that money was already built into Johnson’s deal.

I could ramble on all night. Lots of topics to discuss. It just means it’s time for football, and now everything starts to mean a little bit more as the regular season approaches.
