Cards' Fitzgerald says he's a 'work in progress'

Posted: Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- Larry Fitzgerald has acknowledged that his supreme athletic ability has allowed him to ease off in the effort department from time to time.

Not so at this training camp.

Just ask coach Ken Whisenhunt.

He says Fitzgerald has made a lot of improvement and is more committed to prove he's worth it.

Fitzgerald is in his fifth season in the NFL, but he's just 24 years old. Already, he has 330 receptions, 4,544 yards receiving and two Pro Bowl appearances.

Last year, he led the NFC in receptions (100) and yards receiving (1,409), and tied his career high with 10 touchdowns.

Still, Fitzgerald says he's a work in progress and that he'll continue to do things that teach him to be a dominant receiver.
