The Facts: With the first Arizona Cardinals training camp under the guise of rookie HC Kliff Kingsbury on the horizon, Fitzgerald has noticed through offseason practices just how quickly things are moving offensively. "It's not so much what he's installing that stands out; it's how its run, the tempo of it," Fitzgerald said. "Every single day, with more experience, we were able to run it faster and faster and faster, get more plays in more efficiently. The faster guys understand the concepts the more pressure we can put on defenses."
While it's a wrinkle the Cardinals hope will vex opposing defenses, at the Cardinals' current stage, they're the ones trying to keep up as they take it all in. "The language is simpler, but you have to process it faster," Fitzgerald said. "You have to decipher and be able to play fast." Perhaps unsurprising is one Cardinals player Fitzgerald points out who is grasping the offense quickly. Throughout the hype and process leading up to the 2019 NFL Draft, speculation about Kyler Murray going to the Cardinals was rampant in large part due to the notion that the QB would fit perfectly into Kingsbury's system. Early as it might be, that's what Fitzgerald's seen thus far with the No. 1 overall selection. "On the first day he's calling audibles and getting us in plays that are favorable to the offense," Fitzgerald said of Murray. "His future is extremely bright." Rookies are set to report to Cardinals training camp on Wednesday with the rest of the squad set for July 24.
