Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Top Stories D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Comments Share Defensive tackle Darnell Dockett said all is calm on the complaint front at the Arizona Cardinals camp in Flagstaff.“I just like the attitude of the guys this year,” Dockett said. “Everybody’s doing their job, no one’s complaining, everyone’s working.”Thanks to the lockout, everyone reported to camp a little more out of shape than normal and Whisenhunt is taking measures to get his team back in shape. What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke “We go in there and look at our workouts and there’s like 20 things to do in the morning. Normally it would be like six to eight,” Dockett said.Conditioning has taken place every day after practice, no matter what happened during practice and the guys are going with it, Dockett said. “We just said, ‘Alright coach, whatever you want us to do’,” Dockett said.The fact that the Cardinals most outspoken player has said that all is well in camp could be huge to the team, who apparently slacked off last year.“Last year, we worked hard to get to a certain level but I feel like a lot of guys didn’t buy into the program and do everything that was tolerated by our team to win,” Dockett said.
