Long story short, Washington was a second team all pro in 2012 behind only 49ers Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman... Washington fly around with great instincts and movement skills attacking in many different ways.
But then substance abuse problems then got Washington suspended a couple of times and then a domestic violence (he two handed pushed his baby's momma which made her fall and break collarbone) and he has missed 3 years because of all of that... and he's now 30.
Cardinals released him because they're already loaded at the position, with ILBers Deone Bucannon, Karlos Dansby and recent 1st round draft pick Haason Reddick and because Washington and the Cards couldn't come to an agreement (they wouldn't say what, but it's rumored the Cards were attempting to reduce his contract to the minimum amount).
I probably wouldn't be interested, other than the fact that I REALLY wanted Washington's physical skills to be on the Packers before his draft... I was thinking they would HAVE to take him if he fell to their 2nd round pick. Probably not worth the time, but if he's cheap enough, then you never know.
