Heard rumors earlier in the season that he's not a happy camper in Arizona.

Quote:
Pro Football Talk in its Rumor Mill post from yesterday speculates on Fitz leaving Arizona after his contract expires. Apparently he isn’t happy with Coach Whisenhunt’s run-first approach, and it’s impact has showed in his stats through the first two games. Those number probably won’t get too much better against the Ravens this week.

It’s basically stated that the rumor is pretty strong that Fitzgerald wants out after his contract, and with Anquan Boldin also needing paid, the Cards just can’t afford Larry. So instead of losing him for nothing a trade may be in the works. I’ve heard possible teams that would be interested as Seattle (would they really trade him to a division rival? I think not), Philadelphia and Minnesota. PFT mentions only Minnesota, being Larry’s hometown, as making the most sense. Minnesota could be an exciting offense for Fitzgerald with Adrian Peterson and a young QB. He’d definitely be the #1 receiver there, but I’d really like to see him go to an AFC team on the East Coast so that we could see him more often.

If we see a move by Arizona to sign Bryant Johnson...then you can be sure that Larry is going somewhere else

It's a damn shame too because Fitz is an awesome receiver.

Too bad Wiz ignored the fact that his best players were better suited for a passing offense. He spent the entire season trying to make Arizona into a running offense and it probably cost them the playoffs.

This is one of the very rare FA opportunities that I actively support looking into. Fitz and Santo? Ben at QB? Hines as a #3 (well, he would be).

Scary good WR corps.

Down the line Hines would be a 3. Santo would become 3 if Fitz came.

Scary Good Core indeed.

If we grabbed Larry Fitzgerald tomorrow morning I would put him at #1 and Santonio Holmes at #2. Two deep threats on the outside and let Hines go in traffic.

While I strongly doubt we will ever see that scenario, it's beautiful to think about.

It would be cool but no. Its not going to happen

First of all the Rooneys never sign big name FA's and next we have alot more things to worry about than are WR core we cant pass if we dont have a line to block
