  Seahawks | Early Doucet cut    Wed Aug 7, 04:51 PM

The Seattle Seahawks have terminated the contract of WR Early Doucet.

Footballguys view: Doucet only lasted five days on the roster and was only able to practice once due to undisclosed injury. The market was especially cool for his services before the Seahawks gig and his playing days may be done.

  Seahawks | Early Doucet just trying to fit in    Sun Aug 4, 08:09 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Early Doucet said Sunday, Aug. 4, that he is just trying to fit wherever the team can use him. Head coach Pete Carroll said the thing he likes most about Doucet is the way former teammates talk about his toughness.

Footballguys view: Doucet is a slot WR who will compete for a roster spot behind Doug Baldwin. If he wants to fit in he should work on his concentration. Doucet is known to drop too many passes and lacks explosiveness with the ball in his hands.

  Seahawks | Will add Early Doucet    Fri Aug 2, 06:39 PM

The Seattle Seahawks will sign free-agent WR Early Doucet (Cardinals).

Footballguys view: Doucet is a solidly-built receiver with good run after catch ability, but he has been inconsistent and oft-injured so far in his career. He could push for a roster spot if early camp sensation Stephen Williams falls off.

  Seahawks | Early Doucet visits    Wed Jul 31, 08:34 AM

The Seattle Seahawks worked out free-agent WR Early Doucet (Cardinals) Tuesday, July 30.

Footballguys view: We expect these kind of visits to continue as the Seahawks look for WR help. With Percy Harvin out until December the team will be looking to add free agents at the position. Doucet had decent upside when he came out of LSU but failed to develop his pro game.

  Cardinals | Early Doucet likely odd-man out    Tue Nov 13, 03:30 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Early Doucet will likely be the odd-man out with WR Michael Floyd expected to become a bigger part of the offense in the second half of the season. WR Andre Roberts will likely line up opposite WR Larry Fitzgerald in the team's two-receiver sets, but Floyd is a prototypical outside receiver in three-wide sets. 'If Mike played more, he's just learning the 'Z' (position) and I would be forced to go into the slot,' Roberts said. 'I don't know what that would do to my reps. We have a whole bunch of formations. We'll see.'

Footballguys view: As we see Floyd emerge we'll also see Doucet's snaps go down. Floyd is a better talent and is known for making difficult catches seem routine.

  Cardinals | Drops are problem for Early Doucet    Mon Nov 5, 09:02 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Early Doucet was credited with two drops in Week 9 against the Green Bay Packers, and he has six drops on 39 targets. He lost playing time to rookie WR Michael Floyd as the game progressed, and that trend might continue following the team's bye.

Footballguys view: We'll see more from Floyd for the rest of the season. He's a talented rookie with big play ability, size, and leaping ability.

Arizona Cardinals WR Early Doucet (undisclosed) was shaken up on an incompletion in the fourth quarter of the Week 8 game against the San Francisco 49ers Monday, Oct. 29.

Footballguys view: Doucet was able to walk off under his own power so that's a good sign. It was a crushing (legal) hit by Dashon Goldson. Doucet finished the game with 2 catches for 21 yards.

  Cardinals | Michael Floyd remains low on depth chart     Thu Aug 16, 10:45 AM

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd remains behind WRs Andre Roberts and Early Doucet on the depth chart, and he has played with the reserves through two preseason games. The complementary role should help Floyd ease into the league, according to WR Larry Fitzgerald. 'Michael has a unique opportunity,' Fitzgerald said. 'He's not going to be asked to carry the full load. He'll have a nice complementary role until he gets comfortable in there and he can get featured more and more. He's confident in his ability, and that's what I really like about him.'

Footballguys view: No surprise here. The team will. It rush Floyd into action before he's ready. We love his upside in dynasty leagues, but don't recommend drafting him in redraft leagues.

  Cardinals | Michael Floyd low on first depth chart    Mon Jul 30, 01:16 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd is behind WRs Andre Roberts and Early Doucet at one of the wide receiver spots on the first depth chart.

Footballguys view: If you draft Floyd this year in a redraft league, you'll likely have to sit on him for at least a few weeks to see what you've got.

  Cardinals | Michael Floyd may start as No. 4 WR    Thu Jul 19, 02:25 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Michael Floyd may start training camp as the No. 4 receiver because the coaching staff believe WRs Andre Roberts and Early Doucet are better than Floyd at this point.

Footballguys view: We've seen this report earlier in the offseason. The team isn't going to rush Floyd's development so he will have to work his way up the depth chart. Floyd has star potential if he can develop his pro skill set.

  Cardinals | Rookie WR Floyd to enter camp as 4th on depth chart?    Tue Jun 26, 07:39 PM

Dan Arkush, from Pro Football Weekly, reports the Cardinals seemed determined not to rush rookie WR Michael Floyd. In fact, he is likely to begin training camp as the 4th WR on the depth chart behind Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Roberts, and Early Doucet.

Footballguys view: No cause for concern here. Floyd is a star WR with high upside, but the team will ease him into the lineup. He may begin camp as the 4th WR on the depth chart, but by the end of the season he could be in the starting lineup opposite Fitzgerald.
