Seahawks released WR Early Doucet.
Doucet was signed only five days ago, but had practiced just once due to "unidentified injuries." It's safe to assume he would have lasted at least one preseason game on the roster had he been healthy. Doucet's 2012 was marred by injury, including concussion issues. Considering his dead silent market before Seattle came calling, Doucet could have a hard time finding a new home. Wed, Aug 7, 2013 04:53:00 PM

Seahawks signed WR Early Doucet, formerly of the Cardinals.

A speed-deficient and drop-prone slot receiver, 27-year-old Doucet caught 28 passes for 207 yards (7.4 YPR) and no touchdowns in Arizona last season, demonstrating an alarming lack of playmaking ability. In Seattle, he will compete for camp reps and a roster spot behind locked-in slot man Doug Baldwin.

The Miami Herald reports free agent WR Early Doucet tried out for the Seahawks on Tuesday.

The report comes via Miami because the Dolphins reportedly wanted to work Doucet out, but he "already had a Seattle tryout booked." The Seahawks may be looking at Doucet to buffer their receiver corps in the wake of Percy Harvin's hip surgery. Doucet has garnered surprisingly little interest since being released by the Cardinals in March, conducting no known workouts before Tuesday.

The Cardinals aren't interested in re-signing free agent WR Early Doucet.

The Cards have a major question mark at their fourth-receiver spot, but have seen all they need to see out of the sixth-year pro. Doucet hasn't drawn a whiff of interest on the open market since Arizona cut him loose in March. He should find a new home before camp.

Cardinals released WR Early Doucet.

The move takes Arizona off the hook for Doucet's $1.95 million base salary, and saves $1.7 million under the cap. The Cardinals will keep Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts, and Michael Floyd as their top-three receivers under Bruce Arians. Doucet, 27, has been an injury- and drop-prone disappointment in the pros.

Early Doucet (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 17.

So ends a colossally disappointing season for a player who appeared to take a step forward in 2011. Doucet will finish with just 28 catches for 207 yards after posting a 54/689/5 line a year ago. His cheap ($1.95 million) 2013 salary likely means he'll be back with the Birds, however.
Fri, Dec 28, 2012 06:04:00 PM

Early Doucet (concussion) still hasn't been cleared to practice.

He's going to miss his fourth straight game Sunday. Thanks in large part to the Cardinals' catastrophic quarterback play, Doucet regressed almost fully from his semi-breakout 2011 campaign this season, catching just 28 passes for 207 yards and zero scores. He posted a 54/689/5 line in 2011. The fifth-year pro is signed for $1.95 million next season.
Wed, Dec 26, 2012 06:48:00 PM

Early Doucet (concussion) has yet to be cleared to practice.

Doucet missed Sunday's win over the Lions, and doesn't appear to be on track to play in the Cardinals' Week 16 home tilt against the Bears. This punctuates a lackluster 2012 for Doucet where he has failed to reach the endzone and currently has just 207 yards on 28 catches.
Wed, Dec 19, 2012 04:55:00 PM

Early Doucet (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 15.

Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd will be Arizona's outside receivers against the Lions, with Andre Roberts in the slot. With Ryan Lindley starting at quarterback, Doucet is missing out on a surefire reception-less day.
Fri, Dec 14, 2012 04:15:00 PM

Early Doucet (concussion) remained out of Cardinals practice Thursday.

He's not going to be cleared for Week 15. In the midst of a major regression from his promising 2011, Doucet is signed for $1.95 million next season.
Thu, Dec 13, 2012 04:01:00 PM

Early Doucet (concussion) did not participate in Wednesday's practice.

This news bodes poorly for Doucet's Week 15 status. Last week, he played 14 snaps in the Cardinals' loss to the Seahawks, catching two balls for thirteen yards.
Wed, Dec 12, 2012 04:28:00 PM

Early Doucet (ribs) caught two passes for 13 yards in the Cardinals' Week 13 loss to the Jets.

Even with his ribs healed and Andre Roberts (ankle) inactive, Doucet saw just five targets. He's well off the fantasy radar with youngsters Michael Floyd and Rob Housler coming on.
Thu, Dec 6, 2012 09:31:00 AM

Early Doucet (ribs) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Doucet was limited all last week before ultimately not suiting up against the Rams. For now he should be considered questionable at best for Week 13, and a possible game-time decision. His status will be updated on Thursday.
Wed, Nov 28, 2012 06:07:00 PM

Early Doucet (ribs) is inactive for Week 12 against the Rams.

As are LE Calais Campbell (calf) and TE Todd Heap (knee). Heap hasn't played since Week 2, but got in a full week of practice, and was probable on the injury report. In other words, he's a healthy scratch. Doucet's absence is good news for rookie Michael Floyd. Also inactive for the Cardinals are QB Kevin Kolb, RB Alfonso Smith, OG Senio Kelemete and OT Pat McQuistan.
Sun, Nov 25, 2012 02:57:00 PM

Early Doucet (ribs) is questionable for Week 12 after getting in three limited practices.

There hasn't been any indication Doucet is in danger of missing Sunday's game, but he's off the fantasy radar regardless. Doucet has just 24 catches for 187 yards through 10 games.
