IDK.... I mean it would be really nice for Brady to have should a good receiver. However, he said publicly that he aims to retire a Cardinal.

He qualified this quote later on saying that, although he was AIMING to retire a Cardinal, winning was the bullseye.
.
Having said this, I think he may be too expensive for New England blood this year with a year left on his contract, but next year might be another story. He'd be a great fit.

I think with a better QB the Cardinals could be a winning team.

That's the problem. Because every NFC West team is on the verge of winning, they don't need to unload salaries for the sake of rebuilding. The Cardinals think they can win next year and they're right. If LF played for the Bills it would be a different story.
.
What prompted his "I'm aiming to stay with the Cardinals" press release, was an earlier quote indicating that he wanted to win a Superbowl. The Arizona press correctly took this as a veiled request to be traded and jumped all over it. This forced LF into damage control and a bunch of "I love Arizona" PR.
.
He may very well like Arizona - its a nice place to live - if you've got money. But whenever a player says how much he loves a team or a city the end is usually near. Its like the dreaded "vote of confidence" the owner gives a coach before he's fired.
My only problem with this whole situation is the Patriots won't overpay for him like some other teams. The salary cap doesn't allow teams to throw money at players (like the Yankees do) without hurting the salaries of the other players.

Midnight rambler is right. Your name that is. Your just rambling.

"But whenever a player says how much he loves a team or a city the end is usually near"

This is not true. Look at Kobe a few years ago. He basically said he didn't want to be a Laker anymore. You see how that turn out.

"The salary cap"

Uh are you serious there is no salary cap for the NFL anymore.

I don't believe that Larry Fitzgerald will be able to stand the smell of Bill Belichick's farts on the sidelines.
