Larry Fitzgerald wants Kevin Kolb
The Arizona Cardinals have yet to come up with another contract to make Larry Fitzgerald. Maybe they’re doing something that could provide him with even more happiness right now.
They’ve giving him a voice in what they should do in the search for Kurt Warner’s replacement, a year after Warner retired.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Cardinals have asked Fitzgerald for his opinion following a disastrous season when the Cardinals went from Derek Anderson to rookies Max Hall and John Skelton.
Per the report, Fitzgerald’s first choice was Kevin Kolb, who remains under contract to the Philadelphia Eagles and won’t come cheaply. He also listed Marc Bulger, and it’s unknown how much Bulger has left to give after a year of clipboard-toting in Baltimore.
Fitzgerald is entering the final year of the $40 million, four-year contract he signed. His contracts have been masterfully designed by Eugene Parker and he’ll get a shot at a third contract before he’s 30. Whether or not he’ll sign a deal to remain in the desert probably hinges a great deal on who the Cardinals get to play quarterback.
