Larry Fitzgerald is frustrated, but committed to Arizona

With instability at the quarterback position, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is having one of his worst seasons as a professional during the 2012 campaign. Still, Fitzgerald remains committed as ever to the Cardinals, according to former All-Pro receiver Cris Carter.

It's been a frustrating year for both the Arizona Cardinals and their most talented player, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. This past Sunday the Cardinals lost their eighth straight game, and Fitzgerald was held to just one reception on the afternoon. Fitzgerald has just five catches overall in the Cardinals last three games.

Despite it though, ESPN NFL analyst and former All-Pro wide receiver Cris Carter believes Fitzgerald is committed to the Cardinals. Here is what Carter had to say about the situation in Arizona, via a Tuesday morning appearance on the "Mike and Mike" radio show:

"He is very, very frustrated, but he is sold out for the Cardinals. That's his team, that's where he's going to make his home, that's where he's going to live his life."

Beyond Sunday's one-catch effort against the Jets, it's been a disappointing year overall for Fitzgerald. In 2012 Fitzgerald has just 56 catches for 650 yards and four touchdowns, and is on pace for just 76 catches on the season. If that number were to hold up, it'd be his lowest output since 2006, which was his third in the league.

Fitzgerald also hasn't been helped by inconsistency at the quarterback position either. Kevin Kolb, John Skelton and Ryan Lindley have all taken snaps at quarterback, with Lindley specifically struggling in recent weeks.

Against the Jets last Sunday, Lindley completed just 10 of 31 passes for 72 yards.
