The lockout has put a halt to more in the NFL than a pileup on the I-10 does to people’s drive home. No free agency, no trades, and no team workouts. That doesn’t mean Arizona Cardinals Pro Bowl receiver Larry Fitzgerald isn’t still all business despite none of it getting done around the league.
While some players around the league have been less shy than Rep. Anthony Weiner on the Internet about lounging around during the lockout, Fitzgerald has spent his down time trying to perfect his already impressive game.
“I’m just working hard,” he told ArizonaSports.com in an exclusive interview. “That’s something that never changes for me. I always try to stay on top of my body and make sure I’m ready. If they called us back to work two months ago I’d have been ready. If they called us today I’d be ready. If they call us back in two months I’ll be ready. It doesn’t matter. I’m always going to stay on top of it. It’s just part of my job and part of the requirement.”
