Larry Fitzgerald Doesn't Want The Cardinals To Draft A QB

New, comments

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has had an interesting offseason commenting about his teams' starting QB situation. Fitzgerald, widely seen as one of the best WRs in the NFL, saw his TD output halved last season thanks to the awful QB situation in Arizona.

So earlier in the offseason Fitzgerald indicated to Adam Schefter that his top choice to QB the Cards next year was Kevin Kolb, who was flattered by the report.

However, Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt didn't seem happy about Fitzgerald's campaigning.

"Larry is obviously not making the decisions," Whisenhunt said. "There's a lot of things that guys want that they don't necessarily get. That's why I have individual meetings with them to get their ideas. It would make sense to at least talk to some of your players."

That hasn't stopped Fitzgerald from offering his opinion once again, saying he doesn't think the team is going to draft a QB with their top pick.

"I would doubt that we would draft a quarterback that high (No. 5)," Fitzgerald told FOX Sports Arizona on Tuesday. "I would doubt it. But, who am I? I’m just a player."

Fitzgerald would prefer "Anybody that’s going to help us win" playing under center for the Cardinals in 2011.
