Boldin, Dockett show up for Cardinals camp despite contract issues

Posted: Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- Wide receiver Anquan Boldin and defensive tackle Darnell Dockett have put aside their contract squabbles and reported to Arizona Cardinals' training camp on time.

Boldin slipped into the dormitory at Northern Arizona University without talking to reporters yesterday while Dockett stopped to say he never really thought about staying out of camp.

The Cardinals have a running test today, then begin workouts tomorrow.

Boldin's displeasure stems from the new four-year, 40 million dollar contract for fellow Cardinals' wide receiver Larry


Boldin's current contract averages 4 million dollars per season in a deal that runs through 2010.

Last season, Boldin became the fastest player to reach 400 receptions in NFL history, doing it in 67 games since 2003.

Dockett signed a five-year, 22 million dollar contract extension in 2006.

He's coming off his best season, leading all NFL defensive linemen with nine sacks.
