Cardinals, Washington agree to contract extension

The Arizona Cardinals have secured the services of arguably their best linebacker as Darryl Urban of reports that inside linebacker Daryl Washington and the team have agreed to a new contract that will keep the ILB in the Valley of the Sun through the 2017 NFL season.

Although the financial terms of the extension are not known, what is certain is that Washington had been signed through the 2013 season at league minimum base salaries of $540,000 and $630,000 in 2014.

Washington was key component of the Cardinals’ defense, as he had 78 tackles with a sack and an interception during the 2010 season and improving to 107 tackles in 2011, leading the team in that category.

With the signing, Washington would be the second Cardinal signed to a long-term deal.
