LB Daryl Washington Demoted During Cardinals OTA's
Linebacker Daryl Washington spent the first day of the Cardinals’ organized team activities practicing with the second-team defense Tuesday, replaced on the first unit by recently-acquired Karlos Dansby, the likely choice to fill Washington’s role while he’s suspended the first four games of the season for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy, Josh Weinfuss of Azcardinals.com reports.
For the first time this offseason, Washington addressed his off-the-field issues, which included an arrest on May 3 on two counts of aggravated assault. The case is ongoing. Washington has been working out with the team in voluntary workouts throughout the process.
“I really can’t talk about that right now,” Washington said. “I’m pretty much limited in what I got to say but I'm goint to let my attorney do his job and we’ll go from there.”
Washington didn’t believe his standing with the Cardinals has changed, despite being replaced in the starting lineup, he welcomed the addition of Dansby, who played the first six years of his career with the Cardinals, as a resource.
“I’m actually learning from him as I’m watching him,” Washington said. “It’s good that we brought another addition in at linebacker so (he’s) a good guy to learn from and hopefully we can complement each other on the field if we can ever play together.”
“All I can do is come out here and work as hard as I can and let everything else play out,” Washington said. “I don’t like to bring a lot of attention to the team.
“I wish I could’ve just been more aware of a lot of situations obviously on both ends of the stick with the league and myself. All I want to do is move forward from here and just try to help my team and bring positive attention to the team.”
