Darnell Dockett passes physical, 49ers going to make offer

Mar 4, 2015 at 5:47 PM--


Former Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett is expected to make a decision today on where he will play in 2015. The Cardinals released him last week in a cap saving move.

Dockett visited with the San Francisco 49ers this week. FOX Sports' Mike Jurecki stated today that 49ers players are reaching out to Dockett and are lobbying to bring him to the Bay Area.

Dockett passed his physical and Jurecki states that, per a source, the 49ers are going to make him an offer.

He has amassed 459 tackles, 40.5 sacks, four interceptions and seven forced fumbles during his career.

Docket was entering the final year of his contract with the Cardinals and was due to make $6.55 million. The Cardinals would like to have him return, but at a lower cost.


According to Pro Football Focus, Dockett has a career +50.2 pass rush grade. However, his -122.9 run defense grade is the lowest of any interior defensive lineman over the PFF era.

The San Francisco 49ers knew a change was needed immediately after the 2020 season ended. At one point, the team had Super Bowl aspirations. The team ended up finishing with just six wins. Much of that had to do with the unprecedented number of injuries the roster endured. Much of that had to do with the unavailability of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. According to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, the decision to draft a rookie quarterback came soon after the season's conclusion. That's when coaches and front office personnel started doing extensive homework on the incoming rookie quarterbacks. "(Head coach Kyle) Shanahan, (GM John) Lynch, assistant GM Adam

Last week's trade forced draft analysts to tear up their mock drafts and start over — at least, start over from the No. 3 overall pick. The Miami Dolphins used to be slotted there. Now, it's the San Francisco 49ers. Make no mistake, general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan are seeking a quarterback of the future. Who they are leaning towards remains a mystery. NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein released his latest mock draft and has selections No. 1 and 2 going as expected, with Trevor Lawrence to the Jacksonville Jaguars and Zach Wilson to the New York Jets. At No. 3, Zierlein has San Francisco selecting former



How Jimmy Garoppolo reacted to learning the 49ers traded up in the draft

Jimmy Garoppolo is the biggest loser from the San Francisco 49ers trading up to the No. 3 overall spot last week. The move signals an impending changing of the guard for the team, at least when it comes to the most important position—quarterback. Multiple reports have stated that the 49ers plan to keep Garoppolo around in 2021. But beyond that, his future is unknown. The team will likely want to move forward with its younger quarterback, even if the competition lights a fire under Garoppolo. It's worth noting that increased production would only increase his trade value. Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area received word of how the 49ers quarterback reacted to the trade news (h/t to Al Sacco). "I did hear that Kyle reached out to Jimmy and had a
