07:09 AM ET 06.19 | So dispiriting was the Cardinals' season that it helped drag Larry Fitzgerald down with it. Enter new coach Bruce Arians, who is focused on returning Fitzgerald to greatness with the help of quarterback Carson Palmer. During a Tuesday appearance on NFL Netowrk's "NFL Total Access," NFL.com's Ian Rapoport discussed a recent conversation with Arians. ... Arians told Rapoport the blueprint is to move Fitzgerald all over the field in an effort to take full advantage of his special talent. First downs will be the time to get on the outside and look for the home run. On third down, Fitzgerald could be moved into the slot for more conservative, move-the-chains work. Fitzgerald has been learning the nuances of three wideout positions during offseason activities.

Where's he going to line up on fourth downs? Because, with Carson Palmer at the helm, there will be a lot of them.

This should throw Fitz back onto the Fantasy Football Radar. Palmer will get him the ball.

Fitzgerald makes the worst QBs look good. Palmer will look even better.

Yeah, what's with that?

The local story said something about his name being on the lease for a car that was involved in a murder. Sounds to me like the man needs to choose his friends more carefully. Either that or teach them not to just dump the body in an industrial park.

All of the media outlets seemed to tread cautiously on the details, but it seems there is something to the story....

DD, before long you guys may have to give Ocho Cinco another look, at the rate the WR's are falling.... Amendola probably can't sleep at night.

I'll believe it when I see it. Palmer is fading, he'll only look good compared to what Arizona has been dealing with in recent years.

Luckily the previous year Hoody was able to capitalize on another NYC head coaching mistake and steal Ballard.

The Pats, with TE's by NYC

So he was just the getaway driver not the shooter?

My guess is that he let someone in his posse use the car, and it came back with blood in the trunk, or they read the plate number off a security camera at the industrial park where the body was dumped.

They have said that Hernandez himself is not under suspicion for the murder.

The "all over the field" headline could also apply to Ocho. The trouble was, he was everywhere except where Brady expected him to be. You can't succeed in the New England offense with an IQ of ocho cinco.

Sounds like Hernandez is in some hot water.......can anyone say Ray Lewis......

And there you have the Cards nutshelled. The big plan should be to put better players around him "all over the field."
