There was a time the Patriots were lacking explosive wide receivers for Tom Brady and went out and got one.
His name was Randy Moss.
Now, according to this report from CSNNE.com they have been sniffing around Larry Fitzgerald.
Tuesday in New York, a source told me that last offseason the Patriots were indeed interested in acquiring Fitzgerald and sent out feelers to gauge the feasibility.Things mustn’t have gotten too far last offseason, otherwise word would have been rampant. As for this offseason? The Patriots’ need remains.Meanwhile, Fitzgerald turns 31 on August 30. Push could come to shove this offseason with Arizona. Fitzgerald is going to count $18 million against the Cardinals’ cap and, according to the well-connected Kent Somers at the Arizona Republic, Fitzgerald isn’t going to agree to a pay cut. Fitzgerald will, Somers says, entertain a restructuring.
Curious to see if this gains traction or if it was just a random type of thing. One thing is for sure, I am sure Fitzgerald wouldn’t mind a change of scenery.
