Cardinals LB Daryl Washington Could Receive A Two- To Six-Game Ban Upon Reinstatement

Mike Jurecki of reports that Cardinals LB Daryl Washington is expected to apply for reinstatement in the coming weeks. However, Washington has yet to do so, according to Jurecki.

Washington is currently serving a one-year suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy last year.

Jurecki mentions that Washington still has yet to receive disciplined for a previous domestic violence arrest and is likely to be suspended two-six games for the incident.

Washington has apparently completed 38 weeks of anger management and domestic violence classes and hasn’t had any further issues with off-the-field issues, but given his repeat offender status, it’s still likely that he’ll receive a multi-game suspension.

Jurecki notes that the Cardinals have made an effort to add more depth at linebacker this offseason with the addition of veterans Sean Weatherspoon and Darryl Sharpton.

Washington, 27, still has three years remaining on his six-year, $32.5 million contract. He’ll make a base salary of $3.4 million for the upcoming season and another $4.4 million in each of the remaining two years on his contract.

Washington last appeared in an NFL game during the 2013 season when he totaled 75 tackles, three sacks, two interceptions and a fumble recovery over the course of 12 games. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 21 inside linebacker in the league this season.
