As a wide receiver, Larry Fitzgerald is out of this world.
One day, he hopes to escape gravity as easily as he escapes cornerbacks.
The Cardinals wideout, during a break in his offseason work in Minnesota, said he has goals beyond the football field or the atmosphere.
“I try to make decisions .. within my means,” Fitzgerald told Darren Urban of the Cardinals’ official website. “I want to go into orbit. But it costs a million dollars right now and that’s out of my budget. In a couple of years, when that [price] comes on down a little bit, I will do that and try it out, but right now, it’s on my bucket list.
“It’s just not feasible right now.”
Fitzgerald signed an eight-year, $128.5 million contract last August, with $50 million guaranteed.
So technically, he could easily afford some space travel, for himself and his entire team.
