For the first time since the new coaching staff was hired, Larry Fitzgerald was around to answer questions about the Cards. More on that later on the homepage, but on one of the most crucial topics — what quarterback will be throwing to him — Fitz remains in the dark.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Fitzgerald said. “I’m just like you guys, waiting around to see April first, who is going to be in that locker room.”
Fitzgerald didn’t want to get into what QBs would be a good fit, because like the rest of the players, he doesn’t even know what the offense is because he can’t talk to coaches. There is still a lot of speculation of what will go on — other than the Cards delivering a tender offer to their own restricted free agent, Brian Hoyer, it’s dangerous to guess what quarterbacks will be in Tempe by April.
(It won’t be Fitz playing QB, though. He was at the facility Saturday playing in Kurt Warner’s annual flag football tourney. The pros that show up play QB regardless of their “real” position. Fitz tends to aim the ball, although as you can see below, he’ll still draw up some strategy.)
It’s been a reunion today, with Fitz, Warner and Anquan Boldin — fresh off his Super Bowl win — playing together. Boldin and Fitz are scheduled to leave tomorrow to Africa for more charity work for Oxfam. Boldin, according to reports, isn’t interested in a paycut from the Ravens but if he is about to be released, he wasn’t showing any stress. Instead, he was happy with the makeup of his flag football team roster, since Q is driven to win this thing every year, even if it is just for charity.
