Well, now you can officially put a bow on Darnell Dockett’s career with the Arizona Cardinals.
The veteran defensive lineman will be playing his football elsewhere in 2015.
Former Cardinals DT Darnell Dockett is signing with the 49ers, per his agent Drew Rosenhaus.

From Dockett’s Instagram account:
It was reported earlier this week that the Cardinals offered Dockett a one-year contract worth $2.5 million, but loaded with incentives that could have pushed the total value of the deal to nearly $4 million.

Dockett, 33, has spent his entire 11-year career with the Cardinals after they selected him in the third round of the 2004 NFL Draft.
The Cardinals opted to release Dockett last week after attempts to restructure his existing contract to make it more cap-friendly failed.
The three-time Pro Bowler missed the 2014 season after suffering a torn ACL during training camp in August.
