Could Carson Palmer and Larry Fitzgerald be the best new passing combo?

USA TODAY Sports

A former player thinks so.

With offseason talk continuing and the NFL having an entire network of programming to fill, the latest talk was about which new passing combo (quarterback to receiver) would be this year's best?

The choices are Peyton Manning/Wes Welker, Tom Brady/Danny Amendola, Russell Wilson/Percy Harvin, Ryan Tannehill/Mike Wallace, Carson Palmer/Larry Fitzgerald, Alex Smith/Dwayne Bowe, Christian Ponder/Greg Jennings and Sam Bradford/Tavon Austin.

LaDamian Tomlinson picked Palmer and Fitz, calling Fitz the second best WR in the game. He cited the numbers he had (71 catches, almost 800 yards) with "who's who of quarterbacks." He then cites Palmer's production in 2012. He predicts a big year.

Looking at the list, they all believe that Fitz will have the most catches out of all the mentioned receivers. That is interesting, as Wes Welker has only caught roughly a gazillion balls in the last few years.

If I had to make the pick myself, it would be easy to pick the Cardinals duo, but right there with them will be Manning/Welker. Manning is a better QB and Welker is always open for underneath routes. Wilson/Harvin will be intriguing to watch, but with Harvin's injury history, you'll have to wait and see if he can play a full season.

Which duo will be the best? What are your thoughts?
