How difficult is it for a 34 ILB to convert to a 43 LB?
Arizona hired a new Coach Bruce Arians who brought in DC Todd Bowles former DC of SEA. Reports are saying ARZ will be changing from the 34 defense to a 43 defense that Bradley ran in SEA. Daryl Washington is a star ILB who in 2012 had 134 tackles 9 sacks 1 int. What would be fair value in a trade for Washington? This could be a similar situation that Ryans was in. Texans traded LB DeMeco Ryans to Eagles for 4th rounder, I wonder if Houston could get Washington for a 3rd or a 4th?
2013/2014 - 2,400,000
2014/2015 - 2,900,000
2015/2016 - 3,400,000
2016/2017 - 4,400,000
This is a complete pipe dream but hey thats what forums are for right lol.

Dunno where you got this, but it looks like a copy/paste. Should probably link back to whoever did the work.
Anyways, the remaining salary numbers are misleading. First thing is he has 2.418 million in signing bonus left on his deal, which would be accelerated into the Cardinals 2013's cap if he gets traded. That's not too high, but it's something they would have to consider before moving him, and it would make them ask for more in a trade.
He apparently has a 10 million dollar option bonus, which will be picked up this offseason if the Cardinals don't cut him. That will add 2 million to each year of his salaries. The list above left one year off of his contract. So considering all of that, his actual salary structure is:
2013/2014 - 4,400,000
2014/2015 - 4,900,000
2015/2016 - 5,400,000
2016/2017 - 6,400,000
2017/2018 - 6,400,000
That's a bit pricey, but he would be a welcomed addition at ILB.
