Fitzgerald Denies Pushing For Eagles Backup QB Kevin Kolb reports that Larry Fitzgerald is denying that he wants the Cards to push for Eagles backup QB Kevin Kolb.

A month ago, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald had urged management to pursue Kevin Kolb this offseason. Fitzgerald is entering the final year of his contract, and Cardinals quarterbacks had a combined 60.5 rating last season, 31st in the NFL. Coach Ken Whisenhunt later downplayed the report, saying the coaches and management always seek input from players, and that this was no different. But now, Fitzgerald is denying the accuracy of the initial report.

Here’s what he told WCNN in Atlanta when asked if he got into any trouble for saying he’d like to have Kolb in a Cardinals uniform (via “No, because I didn’t,” Fitzgerald said. “I never said anything about what I wanted. As a player, we don’t really have too much say so, if any, about what we want. We are just out there playing ball, we are paid to do our jobs and that is pretty much what they expect us to do. So I really don’t have any idea who is going to be out quarterback and to be honest with you I just want to win and whoever is going to helps us do that I am all for it.”
