Comparing Haason Reddick And Daryl Washington

Posted Jul 28, 2017

Linebacker Haason Reddick has been compared to ex-Cardinal Daryl Washington. Here is how the rookie stacks up to the former Pro Bowler, based off their posted measurables from the pre-draft process.

Coach Bruce Arians has not been shy to heap praise on rookie linebacker Haason Reddick in training camp.

Earlier this week, Arians said Reddick is probably the best coverage linebacker the Cardinals have had during his tenure, a high compliment considering Daryl Washington preceded him and his fellow inside linebackers – Deone Bucannon and Karlos Dansby – are quite good at it themselves.

The D-Wash comparison continues to come up, and Darren detailed their similarities in today’s feature story on the homepage.

As for Arians’ optimism about Reddick, it’s easy to see why. Here is how he compares athletically to Washington, a former Pro Bowler, based off their posted measurables from the pre-draft process. (Reddick’s numbers are from the NFL Scouting combine. Washington’s are from the combine and his pro day. He also ran a 4.66 40-yard dash, but I took his fastest recorded time.)

  • Larry Fitzgerald Is Not Slowing Down

    Posted Nov 13, 2017

    Larry Fitzgerald is the oldest wide receiver in the NFL, and yet, he continues to perform like a star in his prime. The Cardinals’ wide receiver is putting together yet another phenomenal season at the age of 34. Fitzgerald has 60 catches through nine games – tied with Antonio Brown for most in the NFL – for 677 yards and three touchdowns.

  • Jared Veldheer Back On Track

    Posted Nov 9, 2017

    Jared Veldheer was searching for answers during the first five games of the season, and it seems he has found them. The Cardinals’ dependable left tackle went through some growing pains as he moved to the right side but has corrected course over the past three games.

  • Jimmy Garoppolo Wasn't Right Fit For Cardinals

    Posted Nov 1, 2017

    The 49ers took a home run swing before Tuesday’s trading deadline, acquiring promising quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo from the Patriots for a second-round pick. The bold move by the 49ers and the Cardinals’ lack of aggressiveness at the deadline exasperated fans, but that type of trade wouldn’t have made as much sense for the Cardinals.

  • Cardinals Fumbling Their Chance

    Posted Oct 30, 2017

    In 2015, the Cardinals recovered 14 opponent fumbles, which was third in the NFL. Last season, they also recovered 14, which was second in the NFL. Through seven games of 2017, they don’t have any. That is tied with Broncos and Bengals for the worst in the league, as all three teams threaten to set an NFL record in fumble recovery futility.

  • Cardinals Need More Pressure

    Posted Oct 25, 2017

    The Cardinals made a great leap forward with their pass-rush last season, finishing first in the NFL with 48 sacks. Markus Golden had 12½, Chandler Jones had 11 and Calais Campbell added eight. This year, they have only 13 through seven games, which is tied for 22nd in the NFL, and it’s easy to figure out why.
