I'd be open to it if it happened... but that's going to cost serious $$$$.
As for Dockett (I noticed others talking about him) he's talked about needing to feel wanted recently but the guy isn't an UFA until 2016. His cap hit for the next three years is $7.7m, $8.75m and $9.8m. So I'm not sure how he ends up in Seattle any time soon.
You might have just answered your own question. Teams don't tend to keep players fresh off a 1.5 sack season making $26 million over their age 32-34 seasons. The fact that he flamed Whisenhunt pretty much seals it.
Either one of two things will happen this offseason. The first is that Arizona cleans house and starts over. If there is a new regime, there is no way that Dockett would be a part of their plan going forward and I doubt he'd have any trade value on that contract.
The other possibility is that they give Whisenhunt another season (which only Bidwell is capable of), and in that scenario I think Whisenhunt pretty much has to get rid of Dockett because Dockett has strongly indicated that he doesn't want to play for his team/coach anymore.
