Larry Fitzgerald Must Demand Trade, Consider Joining These 5 NFL Teams

There is quite possibly no elite talent in the NFL being wasted the way Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald is.

A six-time Pro Bowler, including in each of the last five seasons, Fitzgerald has just 57 catches for 682 yards and four touchdowns in 2012. While those numbers are not disastrously low, production from Fitzgerald has hit rock bottom over the last month. 

Since Nov. 18, Fitzgerald has just six catches for 67 yards on 37 targets. That's not a typo. Fitzgerald has caught just six of the 37 passes (16.2 percent) thrown his way over the last four games. 

The numbers aren't indicative of Fitzgerald's performance. Instead, the NFL's worst quarterbacking situation in some time has all but sapped the production out of the once-dominant receiver. The combination of John Skelton and Ryan Lindley is laughable by any stretch of the imagination. 

Is it now time for Fitzgerald to do something about his situation? Would the Cardinals even entertain the idea of trading their best offensive player?

Fitzgerald signed an eight-year, $128.5 million deal with the Cardinals in August of 2011. He's under contract in Arizona until 2019, when he will be 36 years old. 

With Fitzgerald lacking any leverage, the Cardinals would have to get massive returns to justify such a deal. While he would likely jump at the opportunity to get out of Arizona, the logistics of a deal press reality. 

But if Fitzgerald did demand a trade (could you blame him?) and the Cardinals were willing to work with him on such a move, here's five teams that make the most sense as destinations.
