Larry Fitzgerald praises Julio Jones

What makes Julio Jones great? Arizona Cardinals own great, Larry Fitzgerald has some thoughts.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Minnesota Vikings Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

There is nothing like admiration from your peers. Yet, for many, that admiration is hard to come by.

When you earn it though, it is sweet. Even sweeter though, is the admiration of a peer who is on his way to Canton as one of the greatest to ever play the position.

That is what Julio Jones got when Larry Fitzgerald was asked about the Falcons star wide receiver in his weekly conference call with the Atlanta media.

Here is an excerpt, check out the main Atlanta Falcons website for the full quote.

There are so many personnel groupings. They're going to move him around; they're going to put him in motion. So, it's very difficult for you to game plan to stop him because he's never in the same place. They move him around [... a]side from his freakishly unbelievable, God-given ability, in terms of running and quickness, he's very intelligent to be able to digest everything that coach has him doing in terms of the formations and where he's aligned.

That is not just high praise, that is the highest of praise from one of the best to ever do it.

Larry Fitzgerald, all class, all the time.
