Tom James of the Terre Haute Tribune-Star reports that Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald is expected to have dinner with Peyton Manning at some point during the week. Manning has been linked to a number of team’s as of late but the Cardinals are really starting to pick up some momentum in recent weeks.
Yesterday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter was adamant that Arizona would be one of the top options if and when Manning becomes available. Obviously, Manning’s health is the issue of concern but if healthy the Cardinals could be looking to recreate another situation similar to the Super Bowl team that was led by Kurt Warner.
Fitzgerald has been lobbying for a new quarterback every season but when you look at the guys that he’s had throwing him the ball, it’s hard to argue with his actions. The Cardinals would still have to decide to cut Kevin Kolb who has a $7 million option bonus that will be due on March 17th. The good news here is that Manning will know his fate with the Colts by March 8th leaving Arizona a little over a week to make a decision regarding Kolb.
Do you see Arizona as Manning’s best option?
