Cardinals’ Larry Fitzgerald earns PFWA’s Good Guy Award

FILe - In this Oct. 17, 2016, file photo, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (11) speaks after an NFL football game against the New York Jets, in Glendale, Ariz. Fitzgerald, Miami's Mike Pouncey and the New York Jets' Brandon Marshall are among the 32 players eligible for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award.

Generally, every Thursday during the course of the season Larry Fitzgerald holds court in front of his locker, chatting with the media and answering whatever questions they have for him.

And, after games, he regularly heads to the podium in the press conference room to accept more queries.

The star receiver willingly shares his insight, while treating the media with respect. Largely for that reason, on Tuesday it was announced Fitzgerald was the recipient of the Professional Football Writers of America Good Guy Award.

The award has been given annually since 2005 and it s meant to recognize an NFL player “for his qualities and professional style in helping pro football writers do their jobs.”

Fitzgerald joins Kurt Warner as the only Cardinals to win the award, with the QB having done so in 2008.

The 33-year-old Fitzgerald is a 10-time Pro Bowler who is the Cardinals’ franchise leader in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns. Last season, his 13th in the NFL, Fitzgerald led the NFL with 107 catches.
