Después de todo, Fitzgerald llega a otro Juego de Estrellas

Posted Jan 22, 2013

No fue el mejor año para Larry Fitzgerald en la NFL – no con 71 recepciones, 798 yardas y cuatro touchdowns, todos muy por debajo de sus números normales – pero su reputación en la liga siempre ha sido muy buena. Así que no fue sorprendente que Fitzgerald fuera elegido como alterno para el Juego de Estrellas cuando se dio a conocer tal información a finales de la temporada. Y, con los muchos jugadores que terminan perdiéndose el Juego de Estrellas, tampoco fue sorpresa enterarse el martes que Fitzgerald volverá a ser un jugador Todo Estrella, en sustitución de Brandon Marshall de Chicago. Se informó que Marshall necesita cirugía en la cadera, y se convierte en el segundo receptor abierto Todo Estrella en tener que renunciar a su puesto por motivos de salud (Calvin Johnson de Detroit es el otro.) Vincent Jackson de Tampa Bay reemplazó a Johnson. Los otros receptores de la NFC son Julio Jones de Atlanta y Víctor Cruz de los Gigantes.

Será séptimo Todo Estrellas para Fitzgerald en nueve temporadas en la NFL. Se une compañeros Cardenales Patrick Peterson y Daryl Washington en Hawái.

Esto le dará a Fitzgerald la oportunidad de extender la marca en su carrera de la NFL de recepciones para touchdown durante el partido de todas las estrellas de la liga. Fitzgerald tiene ya siete recepciones anotadoras. El año pasado, tuvo seis recepciones para 111 yardas y tres touchdowns.

The All-Pro safety tore his ACL at the end of last season and missed most of camp, but returned for the final week. He picked off three passes in his first three practices and looks like he should be ready for the regular season opener.</p>

    #CardsCamp Biggest Surprise: WR Chris Hubert. The undrafted free agent out of Fayetteville State had little buzz entering training camp, but quickly established himself by regularly getting open and making catches. He shot up the depth chart, and while it would still be a surprise for him to make the team, Hubert has turned heads. Even a practice squad spot would be a solid accomplishment for the diminutive rookie.

    #CardsCamp Best Rookie: CB Brandon Williams. The third round pick has taken the field with the starters throughout camp. While there have been some growing pains, the Cardinals are excited about his progress. Williams is a converted running back who has played corner for only a year, but he's catching on quickly and should make an impact quicker than originally expected.

    #CardsCamp Most Improved: TE Troy Niklas. The former second-round pick was close to bust status after struggling with injuries in his first two seasons, but a healthy training camp has allowed him to make significant strides. Niklas is in the mix for a starting role as he begins to deliver on the vast potential he showed coming out of Notre Dame.

    #CardsCamp MVP: WR Jaron Brown. The Cardinals have a deep group at wideout, and playing time during the regular season for Brown could be sporadic, but he took advantage of regular work in camp. Brown lined up a lot with the first team because of injuries and seemed to come away with one or two big-time catches in every practice. Brown is a fantastic safety valve to have if he's needed regularly during the season.
