The Arizona Cardinals signed TCU linebacker Daryl Washington, their second-round (47th overall) selection in the 2010 NFL Draft, to a four-year contract Friday.
Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Washington (6-foot-3, 234 pounds) was named a first-team All-American and earned All-Mountain West honors as a senior in 2009 after leading the Horned Frogs with a career-high 109 tackles to go along with three interceptions, two sacks and 11 tackles for loss.
The native of Irving, Texas, finished his colligate career by appearing in 50 games (15 starts) with 220 tackles (148 solos), 5.5 sacks, four interceptions, six passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery. He also blocked four kicks in his career, leading the nation with three blocks in 2007.
Washington is expected to eventually capture a starting job in Arizona, and when he does, he has the potential to be productive in IDP leagues.
