Anquan Boldin and Darnell Dockett Need to Shut Up and Play

Chris WhitakerContributor IJune 15, 2009

The Arizona Cardinals just inked strong safety Adrian Wilson to a five-year deal and are now only $2 million under the salary cap.

Obviously, this year the Cards do not have the cap space to come close to paying either Anquan Boldin or Darnell Dockett the kind of money each player wants. Boldin has two years left on his contract, while Dockett has three years remaining on his.

The solution is both just need to quit yammering about how they've outplayed their respective salaries and continue playing to the BEST of their abilities. They will both be rewarded for that in time. 

No team can afford to pay all of its players what they are worth every season because of the salary cap. When Boldin and Dockett get to the last year of their respective contracts, their hard work will be rewarded financially. Until then, they both need to take a cue from the classy Wilson. Just shut up and play hard. 

Both Boldin and Dockett should be overjoyed to be playing on a team that just won the NFC Championship and almost won the Super Bowl. Most NFL players would give half their salary for THAT. Well, maybe not half their salary, but you get the point.
