Chad Williams is no longer a rookie, but he’s still got a lot to learn if he wants to come close to touching his future Hall of Fame teammate, Larry Fitzgerald.

On Thursday, the second-year Cardinals receiver sat in front of Fitzgerald’s locker and gave his best impression of the 11-time Pro Bowler.

“I’m Larry Fitzgerald man, I’m Mr. One-Hand,” pseudo-Fitzgerald said. “I don’t know what a drop is. Other guys keep up with those things. I just catch everything that goes my way.

“Being Larry, it’s a tough task. I’m a real humble guy. Being Larry Fitzgerald, everything I touch — I can’t drink a cup of water without it not sticking to my hand. Sometimes my hand get stuck to my door latch on my car.”

Fitzgerald responded like so:

Lesson No. 1: If you’re going to imitate Fitzgerald, know that he pays attention to the details.

Lesson No. 2: Probably don’t go after the man’s looks.

“Chad’s a very great-looking guy, I have to give it to Chad,” said not-Larry Fitzgerald.

“He’s a lady’s man.”

At the end of the day, Williams probably knew he set himself up to get rooked.
