08:06 AM ET 04.13 | Larry Fitzgerald doesn't think the Cards' QB woes will be solved with their first pick in the draft. "I would doubt that we would draft a quarterback that high. I would doubt it," Fitzgerald said. "But, who am I? I'm just a player. Management hasn't told me if they are going to go in any direction." Fitzgerald's choice? "Anybody that's going to help us win. That's really how I feel," he said Tuesday after taking batting practice with the Arizona Diamondbacks in preparation for a celebrity softball game to be held next week. At the same time, Fitzgerald appears to hold top quarterbacks Blaine Gabbert of Missouri and Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton of Auburn in high regard.

Larry you will never, I mean NEVER, win in Arizona now that Kurt is gone.

And I'm sure they inform him about all they're moves.

Fitzgerald will hold any QB in high regard who can toss him the ball

Don't you wish all receivers were as professional in their speech and behavior as Larry Fitzgerald?

15 days till the NFL draft and we'll see that QB isn't their first pick.

Their choices are Kevin Kolb, Matt Hasselbeck, Carson Palmer or the draft.

Unless they can bring back Kurt Warner, they haven't got a prayer.

Wow, you wished away the Spam. How did you do that? Did you rub the lamp and Jeannie came out?

Bidwell is to cheap to pick up a QB in the first round. This year that may be a good thing. However it is going to take at least a year to get someone ready to play, and I believe Fitz will be a free agent after this season. I think...?

Bob Kraft is putting his change in a piggy bank just for that.

He'll be gone the second he can leave. No way they'll be in a position to contend before his contract is up.

News Flash Cards will trade 1st rd pick to Washington for Mcnabb.......HAHAHAHA

I feel bad for Larry, great player, great athlete, great guy.
I wish he had a great QB.
I guess off to Foxboro/Indy next year if the stars align well.

What's kind of funny about this is that first, it might actually happen, and second, if it does both teams will still need to find a quarterback.

If I were Fitzgerald I would rather have Gabbert than Newton, more likely to go through his complete progression before pulling it down & taking off himself.
