      Yea his 1st season every doing that. Not all players just jumped tot he 3-4 OLB spot and have a ton of success right off the bat. There is a transition time that some guys go thru. Up until this past season Blackstock was used as a 4-3 OLB which is directly opposite what his skill set is best for.

        The Cardinals thought so much of Blackstock, they didn't even offer him the lowest RFA tender possible, making him an unrestricted free agent. Sort of interesting.

          I assume it's cause they have to re-sign Dansby and they don't have much cap room. There's also more rushbackers in the draft every year now. Pace is going to be 28 this year also.
          I remember: Sean Taylor

            They couldn't afford ~$940K to offer him the lowest tender? Keep him for one more year, or get a 3rd round pick in compensation if another team signed him to an offer sheet?

            I don't know, I'm just looking at it how it is.

              Bro they were pinching pennies and trying to rework contract so they could sign Alan Faneca. Would you wanna be the guy to tell your franchise that you lost out on Alan Faneca because you signed Darryl Blackstock?

                We're talking about $944K of a $116M cap. Make of it what you will.

                  940k is nothing compared to the cap room available...especially when you take into account that his salary would take the place of another one against the cap probably costing around 500k against the cap.

                  Welcome to reality...the guy sucks so bad he wasn't even tendered.

                    Well, that the Cards let him walk, doesn't automatically mean he sucks. Obviously, the guy didn't light the world on fire in Arizona, maybe a chance with a new team changes that.

                      Your right...the fact that the Cardinals don't like him probably means he'll be a star in this league.

                        Bro, open your eyes. He's a 24 year old that was in a system that he never really fit into. With a change of scenery and in a new role, there's no reason he can't turn into a cheap backup.

                        Who said anything about him being a star?

                          Geo, the problem with Blackstock apparently was more related to his off the field ways than his on the field ways.

                          He got into a shouting match with Darnell Dockett after Seattle, was labelled immature and work shy...

                          Now, I don't know how accurate those things are, but he certainly didn't fit the mold of person that Whiz wanted.

                          The kid has some talent, and I hope he gets a chance to use it but sadly, it won't be in 'Zona. Maybe this is the kick the guy needs?
                          Will post for +rep.

                            It was a joke. Taking a shot at the Cardinals inability to recognize talent.

                              Well Blackstock wasn't used at all up until this season, he was only a special teams guy and a 3rd string LB, the only reason he got some playing time was due to the fact that Berry & Okeafor both went down with injuries

                                I dont get the Blackstock talk here. This guy was nothing more than backup material. Did he suddenly become good this year? Why is this guy getting such solid props?
