TEMPE, Ariz. -- Linebacker Daryl Washington has agreed to a six-year contract with the Arizona Cardinals that will keep him with the team through 2017.
Washington had two years remaining on his rookie contract.
Washington, a second-round pick in the 2010 draft out of TCU, had a team-leading 111 tackles (100 solo), five sacks, 16 tackles for loss and two interceptions last season while playing in 15 games. The 16 tackles for loss were the most by a Cardinals player since Clyde Simmons had 17 in 1995.
Two things that successful teams do consistently is build through the draft and keep their core players, said Cardinals general manager Rod Graves. Daryl has certainly lived up to the potential we all saw in him coming out of TCU in 2010 and he has established himself as one of the top young defensive players in the NFL. I know he feels, like we do, that his best football is still ahead of him, and were thrilled that this deal gives him the opportunity to achieve that with the Cardinals.
Washington, 25, had 77 tackles, one sack and one interceptions as a rookie in 2011.

In virtually any survey or measure of national interest among NFL fans, the Arizona Cardinals rank near or at the bottom.
But at least Cardinal fans can rest assured that they defy stereotypes. In a sometimes humorous take, the NOC, an entertainment channel about the personalities and lives of athletes, attempted to capture the essence of each NFL citys fans.

Even though Wells is starting, I believe Ryan Williams will also get a nice chunk of carries himself.
John Skelton has won the race to begin the new NFL season as the Arizona Cardinals starting quarterback.
The decision by head coach Ken Wisenhunt means last year’s first choice Kevin Klob will start the season from the bench – as many NFL rumours websites had predicted, allowing Skelton the chance to establish himself in the Cardinals team when they take on the Seattle Seahawks...

Losing the season opener to BYU apparently hasn't stopped Washington State head football coach Mike Leach from being Mike Leach. The Pirate King heard that his Washington counterpart Steve Sarkisian brought a caged tiger on to the practice field sidelines while the Huskies prepared to face LSU this Saturday, and naturally had to comment on it.
“They could have stuck a...
Arizona Cardinals running back Beanie Wells was added to the injury report Friday with a hamstring injury. Wells was limited in Friday's practice but told reporters he expects to play in Sunday's opener in Glendale, Ariz., against the Seahawks. Second-year back Ryan Williams would start in Wells' place if he's unable to play. Seattle has a running back question...
These teams have strong defenses.In a division won by the 49ers last year because of defense, this should come as no surprise. Teams often wind up mimicking their divisional rivals (the Ravens are built around defense, power running, and a developing quarterback with a big arm and big body, just like the Steelers), and the NFC West is no exception.Both teams have considerable continuity...
I have said it before and I'll say it again. It is darn good to have Mike Leach back in college football, and it seems he gives us a new reason to love him every day. He is never afraid to share his opinions and thought son anything, and yesterday was no exception.
The Internet was buzzing with the news that Washington brought a live tiger out to practice this week to...
