Defensive lineman Darnell Dockett is in a good mood these days, he’s tweeting at beauty queens, and playing the dozens with Crimson Tide quarterback AJ McCarron.
However, it wasn’t always like that, in actuality Dockett wanted out of Arizona if former coach Ken Whisenhunt had stayed. Dockett felt he wasn’t being utilized right, but new coach Bruce Arians has the same idea Dockett has, which is going back to his old position.
“Arians told me he is going to put me in my regular position that I had been playing over the years, when I was a dominant force in the middle,” Dockett said.
“That got me fired up right away because I’ve been just looking for another opportunity to do what I do best, and that’s go out and dominate games,” via Dan Brickley of azcentral.com.
“I never wanted to be an Albert Haynesworth. I never wanted to be one of those guys who will get paid a lot of money and get into the media and [complain] about the position and things like that. I just sucked it up under Horton.
I just did my best at a position that I was never really great at. But again, I just never wanted to be one of those guys, and I just wanted to put the team first. And I wasn’t going to let my selfish ways get involved with our team. I sacrificed.”
