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.
