Larry Fitzgerald: ‘It’s gotta be Kirk Cousins’ if Cardinals go after QB in free agency

We still don’t know for sure if Larry Fitzgerald is going to play for the Arizona Cardinals in 2018. But if he does, it’s clear he wants his team to go after Kirk Cousins in free agency.

The veteran receiver was a guest on SiriusXM NFL Radio and was asked who he’d like to see at quarterback for the Cards next season, and he replied, “If you’re looking at the top free agent quarterbacks it’s gotta be Kirk Cousins… I think he’s gonna be a hot commodity — a lot of teams are going to be after him.”

Fitzgerald isn’t wrong about Cousins being a hot commodity. Just today, we’ve heard reports that he’s made the Minnesota Vikings his top destination, and he said he’d “love” it if the Denver Broncos were interested in his services.

Funny enough, we’ve also touched on the fact that the Cardinals could very well go after Cousins in free agency, though at least one NFC West quarterback is very much against it.

Somehow we’re betting Fitzgerald would be inclined to return for yet another season if Arizona does lock up the soon-to-be free agent. Though, he might just have to fight Von Miller for it.
