  • Daryl Washington: Cut loose
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Cardinals released Washington on Thursday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports. What was once a promising career has been derailed by violations of the substance abuse policy and legal woes, keeping him off the field since Week 17 of the 2013 season. A glimmer of hope arrived in late April, when Washington was conditionally reinstated by the NFL, but the development didn't stop the Cardinals from selecting inside linebacker Hasson Reddick in the first round of the draft. After meeting with team president Michael Bidwell, general manager Steve Keim and head coach Bruce Arians earlier this week, the team has opted to move ahead without the 30-year-old LB.

  • Washington (suspension) was conditionally reinstated by the NFL on Tuesday, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports. After multiple violations of the substance-abuse policy and an assault charge for a May of 2013 incident, Washington's indefinite suspension by the NFL has comprised the past three seasons. The Cardinals released a statement Tuesday in which they touched on his reinstatement. "Considering we have been prohibited from having any contact with him over the last three years, it would be premature today to discuss a potential return to the team. ... At the appropriate time, we will address the issue of Daryl Washington further." Because his contract was frozen when the ban was handed down, he remains under the Cardinals' control for the next four campaigns. However, it remains to be seen if the Cardinals consider Washington a part of their present and future.

  • The Cardinals have yet to decide if they will reinstate Daryl Washington, but the recovery of the troubled linebacker was encouraging enough for the court to reduce his probation two months, per ESPN. Washington pled guilty to aggravated assault in March 2014. He served 10 months probation rather than the one year originally mandated. He was also suspended last May for violating the league's substance abuse policy. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello has declared that the domestic violence charge would be reviewed under the personal conduct policy separately and following a decision on his reinstatement from his current suspension.

  • Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington is suspended for at least a year after violating the league's substance abuse policy. Coach Bruce Arians is taking an "out of sight, out of mind" approach to the situation. "Until he becomes a Cardinal again," Arians recently told The Arizona Republic, "It's a waste of breath."

  • Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington is approaching the one-year mark for his suspension though his NFL status is still in limbo. But according to a report from FOX Sports 910 in Phoenix, Washington is unsure about his status with the league. He was suspended a year ago on May 30, 2014 for being a multiple offender of the NFL's substance-abuse policy. However, he was expected to apply for reinstatement a month ago but did not do so. Assuming Washington is reinstated to the NFL at some point he will likely be subjected to punishment under the NFL's domestic violence policy. On March 24, 2014, he pleaded guilty to assaulting his ex-girlfriend.
