Report: “Violations” for Daryl Washington

Posted by Darren Urban on November 22, 2015 – 10:22 am

This will be short and sweet, because given the fact linebacker Daryl Washington has not been reinstated pretty much pointed this way, but Fox’s Jay Glazer said this morning on the network’s pregame show that Washington has “continued to have violations” in the NFL’s drug program while suspended under the policy of substances of abuse. Glazer also said there is some fear Washington’s career could be over. Again, I don’t think that should surprise anyone following this situation.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals have 2014 No. 1 draft pick Deone Bucannon doing a nice job in the inside linebacker spot that Washington used to man, the Cardinals currently have the No. 3-ranked defense in the NFL and the Cards are 7-2 and in first place in the NFC West. They host the Bengals tonight on “Sunday Night Football.”

    Predictable but sad news!! Daryl Washington could have really been one hell of a very good Linebacker. Cardinals were smart in going a different direction! Go Cardinals in tonight’s game vs the Bengals!

    Not a bit surprised by the info from Glazer. Let us all move on from the Washington Saga of Disappointment.

    We have a more than competent team with Minter/Bucannon – Minter is a beast and getting better each game and well…Bucannon is all over the field and tackles with real energy. I’d love to see who covers more ground each game – Buc or the Badger. Probably the Badger because of the position he plays but Buc flies around also.

    Now, on to the Bengals and another good game!

    This is not surprising even in the slightest, however, that is not to say that it is an absolute shame things came down to this for Daryl Washington. It wasn’t that long ago where it was apparent that he was our best defensive player. I still vividly recall watching his 2012 Pro Bowl season — the man was a freak of nature, rivalled only by Luke Kuechly and Patrick Willis in terms of elite play at the middle linebacker position.

    R.I.P. to what would have otherwise been a star-studded career here in AZ.

    Great, now the fool can sit on his couch sucking on a blunt while cheering for his favorite soccer team.

    Glad this is over.

    Out of curiosity I’d like to know what drugs he’s been taking (not that we’ll ever learn).
    What a waste to talent!!!

    No one should relish in someone being slowly destroyed either internally or externally.

    Let’s hope he gets his life in order and comes out a better person. Also he finds himself another productive and gratifying role in life.

    Cards have been cursed at linebacker for over 50 years. The only ones of note is a low life like DWash and the litany of LB draft busts too long to mention.

    Let the players smoke like really who cares? Washington is a grown ass man and obviously his smoking never affected his play and he was never a danger to anyone. I do not see how marijuana is any worse than alcohol all this is just sad because of his talent level and how minor his actions were. At the same time we have women beaters suiting up every sunday. smh

    I’ve been saying for over a year that the team and the fans should just move on. We don’t need Washington on this team of classy guys.

    You had to figure something not good was going on with all the radio silence regarding D-Wash. He’s done as a Cardinal.

    Ii do think BA has a good point however, that the team should be allowed contact with their suspended players in an effort to try to rehabilitate the player and give them some stability of a family, especially when it’s a substance abuse problem. I’t hard for teammates to help or hold responsible a teammate when he isn’t allowed contact with the team. It’s hard to imagine these kids doing better on their own during a period of crisis versus being supported by the team during their rehabilitation. Some players just don’t get it and nothing will save them, but I think a lot of these stories could end better with more team involvement.

    Darren, not asking why and if he will come back. He is obviously done at least as a Cardinal and hopefully for good but wonder what Cap hit if any they are taking. Also I remember a 10 mil bonus, did he get that and if so do Cards get any back. Good riddance loser!

    RE: Cap money

    The Cardinals were expected to try and recover some of their money. I do not know if they have been/will be successful. They also endure a cap hit on that bonus money for now. They do not have to play salary when he is suspended, so that’s not an issue.

    I wish Mr. Washington a speedy “recovery”. It’s hard to see a career as promising as his go down the drain. The temptations are ever present in some of the glamour and prestige that pro ballers enjoy. It would be good for positive support by his teammates. Why not? People need “good” friends. I know of several people that have allowed pot to ruin their lives. No, they don’t get into as many fights as guys on alcohol, but it messes them up. And to some, addictive. Come back to your destiny Daryl. Life is short, don’t throw it away. Think of your family. There’s help. Decide to decide brother.

    Who is this Glazer guy and why would this information even be deemed credible? I would like to know if there is any truth in it at all. Ad good as the birds are without him I would still love to see him back in the line up, it would only make them better. However, I do love the Freeny addition! Go Cards!

    The nba lets players smoke it about time the nfl does the same we all know what this comes down to is money. It the highest gross profit in any sport in America. Bottom line what it comes down to don’t make him look like a bad person cause he smokes. We all done it and if you haven’t your lying to yourself don’t try to be pointing fingers here. The woman beating part is terrible but the weed smoking ain’t nothing. The nfl has the easiest drug test program in all sports they pretty much tell you when your going to drop once a year that’s it unless you get caught.
