Daryl Washington has been conditionally reinstated to the NFL after serving multiple suspensions that spanned the course of three seasons. Last week, the Arizona Cardinals released the former Pro Bowl linebacker, making him free to sign anywhere, and the Oakland Raiders are still in need of help at the position.
Therefore, there is speculation and opinion as to whether Washington should join the Raiders, and whether the team should even pursue him. It makes sense on paper.
Washington is talented. He’s hungry, eager to prove himself. In 2013, his last season, Washington was a top coverage linebacker to boot.
