Larry FItzgerald wouldn’t mind Tom Brady missing Week 1. (Mark J. Rebilas/USA Today Sports)
It will be an exciting season opener in Arizona Sept. 11 with the Patriots taking on the Cardinals, highlighted by Chandler Jones facing his old team.
New England may or may not have quarterback Tom Brady as he could be suspended the first four games because of Deflategate.
Although they are friendly, Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald would prefer Brady misses the game, as that would obviously benefit the home team.
“C’mon man. I think that’s a pretty easy question to answer,” Fitzgerald said Tuesday. “I love Tom. That’s my man but if he doesn’t play I wouldn’t shed any tears. I’d love to see him back the next week though.”
Brady and Fitzgerald both appear on Westwood One with Jim Gray on Monday Night Football’s pregame show.
If Brady is suspended, he would miss games against Arizona, Miami, Houston and Buffalo — the final three being at home.
