The Cardinals are looking for a quarterback, either by trade or as a free agent pickup. There have been rumors that wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has been consulted about the Cardinals next quarterback. Fitzgerald wants nothing to do with disputes assertions that he’s advising coach Ken Whisenhunt and General Manager Rod Graves in their quest for a quarterback.
“There’s not truth to that at all,” Fitzgerald told Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic via text Friday. “I have no criteria. The two sides haven’t even sat down and talked. I have not talked to any coach on staff for six months. I’m like everybody else scrambling to make this season a success.
“There are much more pressing needs for our team than me. I’m under contract. My situation will work itself out. I’m not worried about it; the team shouldn’t be, either. I want to be a Cardinal.”
Of course, Fitzgerald will be a free agent at the end of the season and if they can’t find a quarterback who can get the Cards offense in gear, the chances of him staying, their chances to keep him will be decreased. Fitzgerald compared the Cardinals’ downfall to going from caviar to eating out of the garbage can.
