WR Larry Fitzgerald
Ole Fitzy is almost guaranteed to be headed into retirement any day now………or is he?
I like what Patrick Peterson said recently about Larry Fitz that “if he ain’t retired yet, he ain’t going to retire this year.” One thing I’ve learned in all my years is that if Pat Pete, a man who played with Fitzy for 10 years in Arizona, says something so definitive about his buddy, you listen to it.
I get the feeling Fitzy is going to give it one more year as well, and if not in Arizona where he has Kyler Murray, the young phenom, to throw to him, why wouldn’t the LA Chargers and Justin Herbert be second on his list with how much potential Justin showed his rookie year?
It goes along the same lines as that of the Amendola and Le’Veon Bell takes I just espoused. Larry Fitz is a combo of the two in that he can run block with the best of them in the receiver pool, and when it comes time to catching passes, he works highly effectively either in the slot or outside, spelling Keenan Allen and Mike Williams in both scenarios.
You’ll read my fourth and final available player to get and probably hearken back to Fitzy as the smarter of the two acquisitions since he involves a simple free agency contract and not the trading of assets, which brings me to my final point.
