Larry Fitzgerald in wait-and-see mode on Peyton Manning

Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald said today that he’s curious about the potential Peyton Manning landing in Arizona, but he has no inside information.

In an interview on ESPN Fitzgerald was careful not to ruffle any feathers, saying it’s up to the management and that he likes quarterbacks Kevin Kolb and John Skelton, but he did say he thinks Manning could be “a good fit.”

There have been reports going back weeks that Fitzgerald could be involved in luring Manning to Arizona, but in an interview with the Cardinals’ website, Fitzgerald said no one has told him anything.

If they are doing it, I haven’t heard anything about it,” Fitzgerald said. “I am as eager [as] everyone to see him.”

In that respect, Fitzgerald is far from alone. There are players on about a dozen teams eager to see whether Manning ends up in their locker room.

    If Kolb cant even hang onto his job with a receiver like Fitz on the field, that shows just how awful he is.

    Adam Schefter is reporting Peyton will now retire because of the media circus surrounding his tour. Adam, you’re a schmuck!

    Manning, has already stated that he would prefer to play for an AFC team. I think it will be the Chiefs or Dolphins.

    Arizona has more problems than Manning can fix.

    I post ” Heard what where?” in response to the two so sure of AZ or Denver and it gets removed. Why? I had a great Tebow version of the lords prayer that got deleted as well when mindless remarks that I wont type here were left up. The Mods here have too much time on there hands.

    Peyton is pimpin all these teams and knowing he can’t play at a high level anymore either. Some teams are so desperate to sign a damaged player of yesteryear success that they don’t care about alienating their starting QB now. Have your “I’m sorry, it was nothing personal” hallmark card ready

    If in fact Reggie Wayne comes with Manning, then the Cardinal could punch a ticket to the SB if they add Randy Moss at league minimum, to make up the league deepest and most lethal WR corp. the main remaining problem with that scenario is shoring up O line. and maybe grabbing another RB like recently released Jacobs, to give Manning the whole enchilada. The Cardinal did a similar thing when they should have beat Pitt. in SB with Warner (that Harrison pick six was a fluke!).
    on paper, this lineup with Manning, Fitz, Wayne, Moss, and the remaining WR’s, would be on par AT LEAST.

    Manning to meet with Whiz, Fitz and Kurt Warner at Warner youth football camp today and the Cards training facility!!

    I think AZ is the best fit but I just can’t see him going to the NFC…

    “There are players on about a dozen teams eager to see whether Manning ends up in their locker room”

    You mean 12 teams are chasing manning?

    Don’t lie to us Larry.
