Arizona Cardinals give 5 year extension to Darnell Dockett

Defensive tackle Darnell Dockett signs a five year extension with Cardinals.

Third-year defensive tackle, Dockett signed a a five-year, $22 million contract extension with the Cardinals. The deal includes $7 million in bonuses, half of it this year and half of it next.

Dockett is the third of what the Cardinals consider their core group of young talent to sign extensions. The others are wide receiver Anquan Boldin and safety Adrian Wilson. The team also has long-term deals with rookie quarterback Matt Leinart and second-year receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

Hopefully, this a sign of change in the way the Cardinals do business. By rewarding players for their performance & not waiting for the last moment to sign their players.
