Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald isn’t saying much about the quarterbacks currently on his team, but he’s saying plenty about a guy who plays on the other side of the country.
“If you’re not a fan of Tim Tebow, something’s wrong with you,” Fitzgerald said at the Colonial All-Pro Football Camp on Monday, via the Daily Press. “He does things the right way. If you spend any time with the guy, he’s a kid that parents would want their kid to be like. He’s the kind of guy that you want your daughter to marry. We need more people like him, not just athletes.”
Of course, that’s not a reflection of Fitzgerald’s beliefs regarding Tebow’s skills as a quarterback. But given that the Cardinals currently have two so-so guys who are struggling to stand out, it’s hard not to wonder whether Fitzgerald would have lobbied for Tebow, if Tebow had been available before the Cardinals paid Kevin Kolb’s $7 million roster bonus in March.
