Dockett will retire from the NFL as a Cardinal on Monday.
Dockett will sign a ceremonial contract Monday to bring his 11-year career to a close with the team it started with, the Cardinals. The veteran tore his ACL in training camp in 2014 and was cut by the 49ers during the preseason last year, so his last game played was back in 2013. Nonetheless, a third-round pick in 2004, Dockett enjoyed a long career that included 40.5 sacks and three Pro-Bowl selections, and helped lead Arizona to the Super Bowl in 2008.
Dockett missed all of last season with a knee injury, but had been a mainstay with Arizona before signing with San Francisco. He was deemed ready to go with no limitations in early August.
He played in every game but two for the Cardinals from 2004 to 2013 and earned Pro Bowl berths in 2007, 2009 and 2010.
"He's ready to go," Tomsula said of Dockett. "There's no limitations on him from the training room."
Tomsula added that the plan is to limit Dockett's work during team drills to protect his surgically-repaired knee, which cost him the entire 2014 season.
