Offseason schmoffseason, according to Larry Fitzgerald.
If you follow the supposed off time of the All Pro perfectionist wide receiver of the Arizona Cardinals, he seems to follow the philosophy of people that have little time for vacation -- rest is for the wicked and he'll sleep when he dies. he wants to get better EVERY day at EVERY moment, whether it be for a philanthropic/out out this world experience ideal or professional one.
Such, in part would explain why he's held a "private" training camp every July in Minnesota (offseason home) since 2009. It's another opportunity to create the supposed "team chemistry," and get routes, timing and conditioning in. And it is in a dedicated player's world -- making sure every moment is well spent on a common goal -- winning.
And that's where he and 50 of his closest friends are holding court this week -- at the University of Minnesota stadium and practice facilities. Fitz has an agreement with the college team and has several trainers, players and coaches that have volunteered to help. NFL luminaries and friends like Chis Carter, Deion Sanders and Micheal Irvin have shown up to provide pointers. We already knew from tweets that Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton and Kerry Taylor was going to be there.
And Fitz stated Ryan Lindley, the wide receivers and tight ends would be there as well.
