If the Cards are going to make a run in the NFC West, having a healthy and happy Larry Fitzgerald is important. One thing they don’t need is their All-Pro wide out talking about leaving to play elsewhere, but that’s exactly what happened when he spoke about playing for the Vikings.
Larry Fitzgerald has gained additional attention in the Twin Cities for his local workouts, which has led to the inevitable question. Fitzergald, though, said he is not thinking about leaving Arizona. “I try to put it like this,” he said. “I have one more year left on my deal, my job is to try to help the Arizona Cardinals win a championship and that’s my focus. I would like to play there. I’ve enjoyed my seven years there. If they want to keep me they’re going to have the first option to keep me.” … [Asked if he ever thinks about playing for the Vikings, Fitzgerald said:] “I’m good at just coming home and being able just to blend in and just being a regular guy. I kind of like that. So if it happened, it would obviously be a childhood dream come true, but if it doesn’t then I won’t lose any sleep over it.”
