Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald apologizes for lone drop in 2013
By all accounts, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald had a very productive 2013 season.
The former No. 3 overall pick out of Pittsburgh caught 82 passes for 854 yards to go along with a team-leading 10 touchdown receptions.
For his efforts, Fitzgerald was named to his eighth career Pro Bowl team.
If there was a flaw for Fitzgerald last season it was apparently the one drop he had in 136 targets.
While trying to highlight his incredible 0.7 percent drop rate in 2013, ESPN’s NFL twitter account acknowledged Fitzgerald’s lone drop.
The Cardinals wideout had a fitting, albeit brief response.
