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.)

    Posted Mar 17, 2018

    There has been a rush in the past few days to equate the release of safety Tyrann Mathieu with the signing of quarterback Sam Bradford, but they are separate entities. While there is always sticker shock on the deals quarterbacks receive, that position is far and away the most important in the NFL, and teams must pay a premium because arm talent is scarce. If Bradford receives the reported maximum amount of $20 million in 2018, he will be the highest-paid player on the Cardinals -- but in the context of quarterbacks, it’s not an egregious amount.
