Larry Fitzgerald To Be Traded to Minnesota Vikings; Dak Prescott Has Strong Words About Ezekiel Elliott

This NFL off-season one of the primary questions has been will Larry Fitzgerald retire? Fitzgerald has kept pretty quiet about it, but there have been rumblings lately that a trade to Minnesota might not be out of the question. Check out below what Sports Illustrated columnist Albert Breer had to say on the subject.

I was totally unaware of this story line until you asked the question—apparently Vikings fans have been talking about it for a while, and Fitzgerald was in Minnesota this week for a charity golf tournament, which raised some eyebrows to the possibility. Fitzgerald’s reinvented himself a few times over the years, and he managed 54 catches last year in 13 games at 37 years old in his 17th season, which is pretty amazing in itself. He’s also a free agent now for the first time. The Cardinals have seemingly kept the light on for Fitzgerald, and Fitzgerald hasn’t dropped many clues as to what he wants to do. But I actually kind of like the fit for Fitzgerald in his home state. The Vikings are run-heavy, Fitzgerald’s been one of the NFL’s best blocking receivers and his versatility to play inside and out would allow new OC Klint Kubiak and the coaches to fit him in with Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson. He’d also probably be a tremendous resource for the emerging star Jefferson, and it’d allow him to give back to the Vikings—who had him out to work with Cris Carter as a teenager. To be clear, I don’t know if this is going to happen. Or if there’s even a chance of it. But it’s a pretty cool idea.

In other NFL news, the Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback Dak Prescott and backup running back Tony Pollard recently commented on starting running back Ezekiel Elliott and what great shape he has gotten into this off-season.

“Zeke looks great,” Prescott said, via Dallas Morning News. “He’s in the best shape of his life. Looking fast. Everybody’s seen the clips of him working out independently with his running back coach. His cuts, just how explosive he is. Excited to have a full year with him again and getting him healthy throughout the whole season.”

“He’s definitely been locked in,” Pollard said. “I can tell he’s took the right step forward this offseason, getting his diet right and getting in shape. Me and him, you know, we worked out a lot of times during the offseason. So, we’re both locked in this offseason getting ready.”
