Larry Fitzgerald wanted the Cardinals to draft Michael Floyd and he’s happy that they wound up doing his bidding.
In an interview with KTAR in Arizona, via SportsRadioInterviews.com, Fitzgerald raved about the way the rookie receiver looked during offseason work. Fitzgerald called Floyd a “strong and physical” receiver who he thinks will be part of a receiving corps that will be “a force to be reckoned with when we open up.”
For that to happen, the Cardinals will need to settle on a quarterback. Kevin Kolb and John Skelton will resume their battle during training camp and Fitzgerald is planning on staying out of it.
“I really just try to stay out of it as much as I possibly can,” Fitzgerald said. “Just try to make my plays and do what I am coached to do and be responsible for that. The cream rises to the top. I know by Week 1 when we go out there we’ll have our guy. We’ll be supportive of that person.”
If the Cardinals find the right guy under center, that receiving corps will have a chance to make Fitzgerald’s words come true. If not, their season will likely look a lot like a reenactment of the 2011 campaign.
