The Pulse: Year-long suspension 'exactly what Daryl Washington deserved'
Friday, he was suspended by the NFL for the entirety of the 2014 NFL season for once again violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Although Washington is regarded as of the franchise's defensive cornerstones, fans around the Valley were not afraid to speak their mind about his latest err in judgement.
We at ArizonaSports.com posed the question as to whether or not the former Pro Bowler's penalty was lenient, too harsh or just right.
And the latter option won going away.
Out of a possible 930 votes, 634 readers (68 percent) felt that Washington's punishment fit the crime.
A sizable minority of 27 percent felt the league came down way too hard on the former second-round pick, while 44 voters expressed a desire for an even lengthier ban.
