Cards reward Dockett with 5-year extension
By TIMES WIRES
Published October 14, 2006
TEMPE, Ariz. - Darnell Dockett always believed he was much better than a third-round draft pick. Now he has a paycheck to back him up.
The third-year defensive tackle signed a five-year, $22-million contract extension with the Cardinals on Friday. The deal includes $7-million in bonuses. Dockett was the 64th player taken overall out of Florida State in 2004, a perceived slight he still uses as motivation.
"I look back at all the guys that went in front of me," he said, "and 80 percent of them aren't doing nothing. Like I said the first day, the Cardinals got a steal and I came and I proved it every year since I've been here."
ROLLE FINED: Cardinals cornerback Antrel Rolle has been fined $12,500 for his facemask tackle of Larry Johnson during Sunday's game against Kansas City, ESPN.com reported.
The fine, first reported by Fox Sports, is Rolle's second of the season for a hit deemed excessive.
Report: DT Simon lost interest in football
The Colts' decision to put defensive tackle Corey Simon on the non-football illness-injury list last week had nothing to do with a mystery illness and everything to do with the club's belief that he didn't want to play football, the Philadelphia Daily News reported.
Simon, 29, out of FSU, had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in mid-August to repair some minor cartilage damage. The Colts had expected him back by the start of the season. But last week, he still insisted his knee wasn't well enough for him to play.
COWBOYS: Terrell Owens says on his radio show that his relationship with Cowboys receivers coach Todd Haley was ruined by a blowup this week. "Right now, we are merely co-workers, and that's it," Owens said.
RAIDERS: For the second straight season, the team will have a game broadcast in Navajo, along with English and Spanish. The Oct. 22 game against Arizona will air in Navajo through an agreement with an Arizona radio station.
SEAHAWKS: Receiver Bobby Engram will be out indefinitely with a thyroid condition that's causing an accelerated heart rate and fatigue.
TITANS: Tight end Erron Kinney was placed on injured reserve because of an ailing right knee and will be out for the season.
