The Cowboys are not expected to retain free agent OG Derrick Dockery for 2013.
ESPN Dallas expects the team to rely on "younger linemen" going forward. Dockery was signed in 2012 training camp as an injury replacement and appeared in 15 games, making two spot starts. At 32, he is nearing the end of the line. Wed, Jan 30, 2013 02:17:00 PM

Dockery has an MCL sprain in addition to a tibial plateau fracture. Backup Bill Nagy is going to need plenty of help against Ndamukong Suh on Sunday.

Cowboys LG Derrick Dockery will not play this week after sustaining an MCL sprain in his knee as well as a fractured tibia.

Rookie Bill Nagy, who had been banged up going into Week 2, will likely start against the Redskins Monday night. The rookie was a liability against the Jets in the season opener.

Derrick Dockery got first-team reps at left guard ahead of Bill Nagy in Cowboys practice Wednesday.

Nagy struggled against the Jets last Sunday night, getting pushed back into the backfield repeatedly. It shouldn't be a surprise as Nagy is a seventh-round rookie. If the veteran Dockery can get up to speed by the end of this week, he's a decent bet to start and help the Cowboys' run game.

Cowboys signed OG Derrick Dockery to a one-year contract.

Dockery takes the roster spot of Montrae Holland, who was released Sunday. Still just 29, Dockery saw little interest on the open market after being released by the Redskins in March. He's set to enter the season as insurance for rookie Bill Nagy at left guard.

The Ravens worked out free agent OG Derrick Dockery on Saturday.

Free agent G/T Jason Murphy, a fringe player, was also at the workout. Dockery is still just 29 years old, but received no interest in free agency after his March release from the Redskins. He was a power-blocking guard in his prime, which suits the Ravens' mentality. Dockery could be an option at right guard in Baltimore if Marshal Yanda kicks back to right tackle.

Redskins released OG Derrick Dockery.

Dockery lost his starting job to Kory Lichtensteiger early last season, just one year after signing a five-year, $26.5 million contract. As a poor fit in Mike Shanahan's zone-blocking scheme, the latest in a long line of Redskins free agent busts played in just three games in 2010. The 30-year-old is a better fit for a power-blocking team, though he may struggle to land guaranteed money on the open market.

Redskins OG Derrick Dockery suffered a knee injury in the second quarter of Sunday's win and did not return.

Yesterday was the first time Dockery had been active since Week 4 due to ineffectiveness, and he didn't last long. He believes he injured his MCL and is set for a Monday MRI.

Redskins OG Derrick Dockery was a healthy scratch for the team's Week 5 win over the Packers.

The Skins could've saved themselves $2.9 million by releasing Dockery before Week 1, but didn't have enough foresight to know he was a poor fit for their zone-blocking scheme. Sunday marked Dockery's first missed game in his eight-year career. Kory Lichtensteiger is now the starting left guard.
Sun, Oct 10, 2010 09:10:00 PM

The Redskins have benched LG Derrick Dockery in favor of Kory Lichtensteiger.

Dockery is a power blocker and not a great fit for Mike Shanahan's zone scheme, so it's not surprising that he lost his job. He's probably on the trade block. Lichtensteiger is more athletic. The Skins racked up a season-high 116 rushing yards Sunday and allowed one sack, so the change may stick.
Sun, Sep 26, 2010 10:06:00 PM

Redskins LG Derrick Dockery is in danger of losing his starting job to Kory Lichtensteiger.

The Redskins are in desperation mode to open some holes in the running game. They reportedly believe Dockery is a poor fit for the zone-blocking scheme, but Lichtensteiger was out of football for most of last season despite being healthy. The talent just isn't there for the Redskins along the line or with their running backs.
Wed, Sep 22, 2010 09:19:00 AM

Derrick Dockery's contract with the Redskins is essentially for three years and $13 million.

Dockery's 2009 salary is guaranteed, as is $5 million of his 2010 and 2011 salary. He did not, however, receive any signing bonus at all, which helps the 'Skins 2009 salary cap.

The Lions and Bills had agreed to a trade sending Derrick Dockery to Detroit Thursday, but the paperwork wasn't filed in time.

Bills management may have just cost themselves a draft pick, but the Buffalo papers claim there was too much to accomplish in a short period of time. After the league determined the paperwork was field too late, Buffalo was forced to cut Dockery rather than pay him his 2009 salary. Dockery almost signed with the Lions anyway, but he wound up taking less money long term with more up-front to play for the Redskins.

Redskins signed G Derrick Dockery to a five-year, $26 million contract. $8.5 million is guaranteed.

Dockery, who was drafted by the Redskins in 2003, bounced back quickly after getting cut by the Bills Thursday. This is great money and a sensible fit for an old Redskins line, but we can't help but notice that the guard market was depressed compared to year's past. Dockery, Brandon Moore, and Chris Kemoeatu signed relatively reasonable deals.

The Lions appear to have entered the bidding for free agent G Derrick Dockery.

If so, they are the Redskins' only known competition. Detroit already has one starting guard in place (Stephen Peterman) and is considering moving LT Jeff Backus inside. If Dockery is signed, the Lions could take Jason Smith or Eugene Monroe with the first pick in the draft and cut Backus outright.
