Fitz learning three spots in offense
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - In his record-breaking decade in the NFL, Larry Fitzgerald has grown comfortable in one position.
Now new Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has Fitzgerald on the move, learning to play all three wide receiver spots.
Fitzgerald says after having some success it's hard to shake his familiar role, but he's working to do just what Arians wants.
Arians says it's a simple concept. Moving his star receiver around will make it much harder for defenses to zero in on him with double coverage.
Fitzgerald and the rest of the Cardinals practiced for just a half-hour in their final day of minicamp on Thursday as Arians let them go early as a reward for all the offseason work they had done.
