    Fitzgerald wants Out of the Desert?

    FITZGERALD EYEBALLING ARIZONA EXIT?

    Only two regular-season games into the Ken Whisenhunt era, rumors already are flying receiver Larry Fitzgerald is looking to leave the Cardinals when his rookie contract ends.

    Fitzgerald, as the rumor goes, is not a big fan of Whisenhunt's run-based offense, and for good reason.
    Fitzgerald currently is averaging only five catches and 53.5 yards per game, which puts him on pace for 80 receptions and 856 receiving yards for the season.
    He currently has no receiving touchdowns in 2007.

    There's no indication that Fitzgerald, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2004 draft, plans to try to force his way out prematurely.
    Based on the escalators in his rookie contract, there was speculation when it was signed that the Cardinals would likely have to extend the deal after four seasons.
    Since this is Fitzgerald's fourth season, and given that it's hard to justify two highly-paid wideouts (Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin) if the offense doesn't take full advantage of both of their skills, it could be time for the Cardinals to think about trading Fitzgerald.

    One potential destination would be Minnesota, given that Fitzgerald is a native of Minneapolis and worked as a ball boy during the days of Cris Carter and Randy Moss.
    Though plenty of folks are murmuring about the Vikes possibly sniffing around Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, we think it makes more sense for the Vikes try to bring Fitzgerald home.

    Especially if the team wants to sell out the Metrodome on a regular basis.



    Man I would be psyched to get him, with the recievers we have, it would be a huge boost to our offense to get a playmaking wr like him.... I say give 'em that extra third we have in next years draft, and a conditional 2009 pick depending on how he performs... good deal for both clubs.

    I would love to bring him in here if we could get a QB who could throw accurate long passes to him. And McNabb isn't that guy!

    I would love to have Fitz here.

    He's a Childress-type good-guy, exponentially better than anyone we have now, and a MN native...

    I could definitely see him fitting in on the Vikes.

    I would like to know if this was a FF article or a real article.
    Having a link helps!

    I am for it also if it is true.....
    Bring him back to Minny where Carter and Moss tutored the kid.
