Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer says he’s never played with a receiver quite like Larry Fitzgerald.
Palmer said at Arizona’s Organized Team Activities that Fitzgerald makes catches in practice that only he and Detroit’s Calvin Johnson would be able to make.
“It’s been awesome,” Palmer said, via the Associated Press. “I threw him a ball today that he and maybe Megatron catch. He’s maybe not one of a kind but one of two of a kind.”
Fitzgerald had similarly positive things to say about Palmer.
“He’s got great touch on his intermediate passes — he can put zip on them or he can feather it in there,” Fitzgerald said. “And then he’s got the intelligence and experience to go out there and make plays. I’ve seen him do it. He threw for 4,000 yards in Oakland.”
After the disaster that was the Cardinals’ passing game last year, Palmer and Fitzgerald are giving Arizona fans a glimmer of hope.
