Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for former Cardinals DL Darnell Dockett, said Monday that his client is drawing “a lot of interest” around the NFL and they “should have his situation resolved by the end of the week,” via the Arizona Republic.
However, Rosenhaus didn’t name any specific teams that are interested in signing Dockett to a contract.
A return to the Cardinals is still an option.
According to Kent Somers, the Cardinals are believed to have offered Dockett a one-year deal worth a minimum of $2.5 million and could increase to around $4 million through play-time and production incentives.
It certainly won’t hurt for Dockett to meet with teams this week and see if he can best that offer.
Following his release, GM Steve Keim said that they haven’t closed the door on him being back in Arizona next year.
“We have been very clear about our feelings for Darnell and our desire to have him back,” Keim said, per Albert Breer.
Dockett, 33, sustained a torn ACL and MCL that he sustained during a preseason practice back in August.
In 2013, Dockett recorded 46 tackles and 4.5 sacks over the course of 16 games for the Cardinals. That year, Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 30 defensive end in a 3-4 defense out of 45 qualifying players.
