Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the Cowboys are doing their "homework" on free agent ILB Daryl Washington.
Linebacker is not as big of a need as it has been in the past for the Cowboys, but Washington was a Pro Bowler before being suspended for three seasons. Dallas has also been ready and willing to take chances on players with baggage in recent years. This match makes some sense. Tue, May 23, 2017 12:06:00 PM

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec does not expect the Ravens to be interested in free agent ILB Daryl Washington.

Out of the league for three years due to multiple suspensions, Washington was reinstated last month only to be cut by the Cardinals. The Ravens have a big hole at linebacker following the surprise retirement of Zachary Orr, but Zrebiec thinks Washington's history with domestic violence will keep Baltimore out of the running. Washington has as much off-field baggage as anyone and has not played since 2013, but it is likely some team takes a chance on the former Pro Bowler.

Cardinals released ILB Daryl Washington.

Suspended for three years, 30-year-old Washington was surprisingly reinstated 16 days ago. In a statement, the team said it believed it was best to "release Daryl and give him the opportunity to continue his career elsewhere." Washington was a force before his marathon ban, but hasn't played a live snap since Dec. 29, 2013, and arguably has more off-the-field baggage than any player in the NFL. He will be up against it to get a second chance. Perhaps perennial risk takers Cincinnati, Dallas or Oakland will come calling.

Cardinals GM Steve Keim said he plans to have an "educational briefing" with reinstated ILB Daryl Washington.

Washington was surprisingly reinstated last week after three years out of the league. "There will be a sit-down with Michael Bidwill, our president and owner, and myself and Coach Arians," Keim said. "Once that meeting occurs, there will be a decision made (about Washington’s future with the team)." Washington was an All-Pro-caliber player and has said he is "in the best shape" of his life, but there is no way to know how much the 30-year-old has left in the tank after three years away from the game.

Reinstated ILB Daryl Washington insists he's in the "best shape of my life."

"Physically I’m in the best shape of my life and have maintained a strenuous six-day per week workout plan for over a year in anticipation of this day and next season," Washington said. "I understand the physical and mental demands that it takes to be an All-Pro linebacker in this League, and I fully intend to play at that level this season." Washington has All-Pro-caliber play in him, as he was named a second-teamer in 2012. We'll see if the Cardinals give him a chance.

NFL reinstated suspended Cardinals ILB Daryl Washington.

Washington has been suspended since May 2014 for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Technically, he's yet to be suspended for his 2013 domestic violence charges. The Cardinals greeted Washington's unexpected return with a lukewarm statement. "Considering we have been prohibited from having contact with him over the last three years, it would be premature today to discuss a potential return to the team." Washington turned 30 during his marathon ban, and has appeared in 12 games since 2012. In theory, the Cardinals could use Washington's help at inside linebacker, but he's a complete mystery at this point. Washington was a star before his suspension. It's quite possible he's granted his release.

Both the Arizona Republic and AzCardinals.com consider suspended ILB Daryl Washington unlikely to be reinstated in 2017.

An Arizona television station reported Washington could be reinstated in March, but the sources closest to the team have a much different view. Now 30, Washington hasn't appeared in a game since 2013. For whatever reason, he doesn't seem willing to do what's necessary to get back in the league's good graces.
Thu, Feb 2, 2017 01:24:00 PM

Suspended Cardinals ILB Daryl Washington is "optimistic" about being reinstated for the 2017 season.

Washington is still technically on the Cardinals' roster but hasn't played since 2013. He's spent the last three years serving an indefinite suspension for repeated violations of the league's substance abuse policy. This is the first time in a while Washington has even hinted at a return. Even if Washington applies and successfully gains reinstatement, there's a good chance the Cardinals wouldn't want him anyway. Cutting Washington would save them $4.67 million in cap space.

Suspended Cardinals ILB Daryl Washington remains banned indefinitely.

Unlike Josh Gordon, Washington doesn't seem terribly interested in gaining reinstatement. His last down of football was in Dec. 2013. Washington turns 30 in October.
Mon, Jul 25, 2016 02:32:00 PM

Fox 910 Phoenix's Mike Jurecki "wouldn't be surprised" if the Cardinals released suspended ILB Daryl Washington this offseason.

Washington isn't costing the Cardinals anything on their reserve/suspended list, but he can't get reinstated after myriad off-field violations, and Cardinals official website writer Darren Urban previously predicted Washington has played his final down for the team. Per FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, the ultra-talented Washington has "continued to have violations" while in the NFL's drug program. Still only 29, Washington's career is literally wasting away. The 2012 Pro Bowler hasn't played since December of 2013.
Wed, Feb 17, 2016 08:19:00 PM

Cardinals in-house reporter Darren Urban believes suspended ILB Daryl Washington has played his final down for the team.

Now 29, Washington has been indefinitely suspended since May 2014. There have been no indications reinstatement is on the table even though he's technically been eligible for over eight months.
Thu, Jan 28, 2016 01:08:00 PM

According to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, suspended Cardinals ILB Daryl Washington has "continued to have violations" while in the NFL's drug program.

Washington was eligible for reinstatement six months ago after being suspended indefinitely in May 2014 for multiple violations of the league's substance-abuse policy. For that, he's subject to numerous drug tests. Washington, apparently, has been flunking them and seems more concerned about smoking blunts than getting his life in order. Consider Washington's career on life support.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 12:21:00 PM

Suspended Cardinals ILB Daryl Washington's status remains unchanged.

Washington remains out indefinitely, and not even the team has any idea when he will be coming back. At this point, 2015 appearances are looking unlikely.
Sun, Sep 6, 2015 01:54:00 PM

Speaking Thursday, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians professed ignorance over indefinitely suspended ILB Daryl Washington's status.

"I would ask the Birdgang to please call Daryl," were Arians' words for fans who wanted to know what was up with the would-be star linebacker. The league said last month there was nothing to report on Washington's status. Washington's ban is already at the 16-game mark, and appears poised to last much longer.
Thu, Aug 20, 2015 03:34:00 PM

According to the NFL, there has been "no change" in indefinitely suspended ILB Daryl Washington's status.

"There is no change in his status, and we have nothing further to report," was spokesman Greg Aiello's full statement. Washington admitted late last month that he had yet to hear anything about his potential reinstatement, but said he was "confident that something will work out." Washington's ban currently stands at the 408-day mark. He'll be facing additional punishment for his May 2014 domestic-violence arrest upon his return.
