Combine: Cardinals GM Keim never got Fitzgerald call from Patriots
The opinions, analysis and/or speculation expressed on Patriots.com represent those of individual authors, and unless quoted or clearly labeled as such, do not represent the opinions or policies of the New England Patriots organization, front office staff, coaches and executives. Authors' views are formulated independently from any inside knowledge and/or conversations with Patriots officials, including the coaches and scouts, unless otherwise noted.
But, according to Cardinals GM Steve Keim those reports weren't worth the paper they were written on. Keim said on Thursday at the Combine that he never talked with New England about a deal for one of the game's truly elite receivers.
"I was driving into work one morning and I heard the rumors about the trade and I was trying to find someone to fire, because they never called me," Keim said, drawing some laughs inside the Faegre Baker Daniels Club at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Finally, directly from the horses or in this case Cardinals mouth, the Patriots never talked to Arizona about trading for Fitzgerald.
