Last week, Cowboys outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware opted to put his $60,000 lockout stipend back into the NFLPA’s pot in order to help his less financially stable brethren. This week, Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is indicating that he’s willing to do the same thing (and more, if need be).

Fitzgerald said, via SportsRadioInterviews.com, that the NFLPA’s financial plan to aid players during the lockout is fantastic, “but for my young guys [like] Stephen Williams, Max Hall, Isaiah Williams, all the guys that are on my team they know if they need anything all they gotta to do is pick up the phone and I’m going to be there for them and support them any way I can.”

In other words, Fitzgerald would be willing to play banker.

It doesn't surprise me at all the he is willing to do this. Fitz and Ware are just some of the players in the league that we should have more articles about. Always the constent professional on and off the field. They come to work everyday and quitly do there jobs and dont ever complain even when they would have every right to speak up. There two of the best players in the league as well and should be the poster boys for the way an NFL player should conduct themselves.
