Dockett does TV — kind of

Posted by Darren Urban on February 1, 2010 – 4:19 pm

Yes, it’s for publicity and yes, sometimes Chad Ochocinco can be a little overbearing at times with his personality. But the Bengals’ Pro Bowl receiver has created this thing call “OCNN” — think CNN, but with Ochocinco … get it? — and is doing various video and social media reports from the Super Bowl. He’s also recruited three fellow NFLers who have made names for themselves in the social media realm, including Darnell Dockett.

We all know Darnell has exploded on Twitter and now he’s joining Redskins TE Chris Cooley and Ravens RB Ray Rice for a week in Miami apparently putting his spin on all things Super Bowl. It’ll be interesting to see how Dockett operates, especially in the video pieces. Is it hard covering a game you were playing in just a season ago? How often will his contract come up? These are the things we need to understand.

    Darren,
    Speaking of Dockett, any news on his contract? Do you think the team will remain true to its useual unwillingness to pay money to its key components and force dockett to play out the next two years? Could dockett possibly refuse to show up/hold out?
    And just one more thing, What players do you think the cards NEED to resign. (for ex i’ve heard many people say that due to the strong play of breston and doucet, that the cards should in fact trade boldin)

    Thanks for reading

    Well, I don’t think it’s necessarily fair to say the Cards are unwilling to pay money to its key components. Wilson was paid last year, as was Warner. Fitz got his contract two years ago. I don’t know what will happen with Dockett; it’s a little early in the offseason to get that far. Dockett could refuse to show up at some point. But there isn’t any on-field stuff until minicamp, which is after the draft in May. A long, long time from now. As for needing to re-sign, there isn’t anyone right now. Boldin and Dockett are under contract. Needing to organized for the future — like giving Darnell a new deal — is a different story.

    Dockett needs to get paid, he has a couple yrs left on his conract but he has earned a payday. he has been solid for us.

    Nine-oh is the man, and Sando said earlier he’s convinced he’ll go in free agency if he doesn’t get extended before his last season.

    That is what Sando said. But if the Cards offered Darnell a top 5 deal after the 2010 season, do you think he says ‘Take a hike’ when one signature would give him all the money he ever wanted?

    Thanks for responding Darren.
    Anyone know if the cards are on the reportedly “long list” of possible suitors for Julius Peppers? Would be nice to dream about

    You can dream, but I don’t believe Peppers has any chance to come here. Not for the money he’s going to want.

    Darren-
    What do you think of signing on Chad Pennington as a veteran (hopefully backup to Leinart) QB? I think it would be an adequate solution to the QB backup question for next year. Sure, Chad doesn’t have an arm, but the Cardinals have YAC type of receivers anyways. It seems Chad would be perfect because the plays the Cards typically don’t throw deep. Is Chad Pennington a possible player the Cardinals would be interested in signing on?

    Pennington is a possibility. But again, it’s a little early in the process to know for sure.
