Cards Reject Dockett's Trade Request

The Arizona Cardinals rejected a request last weekend by defensive lineman Darnell Dockett to be traded, the Arizona Republic reported.

Dockett is seeking a new contract and the request was delivered through agent Drew Rosenhaus, the Republic reported, adding that Dockett's request first was reported by radio station XTRA.

Dockett's five-year, $22 million deal runs through the 2011 season and the Cardinals have refused to renegotiate it, according to the Republic.

Dockett and wide receiver Anquan Boldin, another Rosenhaus client seeking a new contract, sat out the Cardinals' recent minicamp after telling team officials they were suffering from hamstring injuries.

Maybe this will turn into some bad cred for Rosenhaus after having some disgruntled clients turned down. Maybe Darnell can renegotiate his way to a cheaper agent and keep more of his salary...

Dahnny is just holding out for more green so he can finally buy that pimped out Ambulance he talked about before the draft and show off in style at the Paint Branch High Class of 1999 reunion.
