Daryl Washington wants suspension reduces, odds aren't good

Arizona Cardinals inside linebacker Daryl Washington is headed to the league office in New York on Monday.

It's an effort to try to cut down or lift his four-game suspension for violating the NFL substance-abuse policy.

The odds of him being successful are low, though, and Washington isn't scheduled to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, he told FOX Sports Arizona.

Washington also had a court appearance Tuesday where his suspicion of aggravated assault case was continued until October.

Washington is a talented player, but he obviously needs to address these off-field issues to be as successful as he could be and reach his full potential.
