Arizona Cardinals LB Daryl Washington suspended for 2014 season


Arizona Cardinals LB Daryl Washington is facing a suspension for the entire 2014 season. Last season, he was suspended for 4 games for violating the NFL policy and program for substances of abuse. It sounds like he has violated that same policy again and that is why he will be facing the year-long suspension. Clevleland Browns WR Josh Gordon is facing the same suspension going into the season.

I don’t understand how the players get caught up in this situation. Washington is a promising player, but can’t get out of his own way. A suspension for a whole season will set him back and hopefully he will learn his lesson, but 4 games wasn’t enough to teach him in the first place. Now he has to sit out the entire year! Will that be enough to teach him.

The Cardinals will be without their linebacker and will have to look in a different direction on defense. I guess he can continue his offseason vacation for a little longer now.

        those links both show that he was suspended for 4 games last season for substance abuse.

          yeah last year i know he was suspended and my bad for the sarcasm. I am just so disgusted with the suspension. The year long suspension to my understanding is stemming from the domestic violence incident. It is just a shame, and to think AZ just gave this dude 10 mill. Do u think he has a shot at an appeal

            no worries bro… it is possible. I know Josh Gordon is going to appeal his suspension as well. Likely has to sit out the whole season though. I wouldn’t expect him back

          • slamface76 .

            I fully expect D Wash to appeal. I think this is overboard. Now with Gordon he is in stage 3 of the substance abuse policy so he has to eat that susension. But D Wash? I have not heard any news that his punishment has escalated for substance abuse in terms of what stage he was in. I expected a 8 game suspension. I got a question, do u think this puts AZ out of the playoff hunt?

            i havent heard anything like that either. it was already tough for the Cards with the 49ers and Seahawks in the division, but I still that you all will still make a push to get there.
