There's a big, talented receiver for the Arizona Cardinals whose name is not Larry Fitzgerald.

Michael Floyd, entering his third season, has emerged as a major target for quarterback Carson Palmer.

Fitzgerald caught more passes last year, 82 to Floyd's 65. But Floyd's catches covered 1,041 yards to Fitzgerald's 954.

Some have even suggested Floyd is supplanting Fitzgerald as the team's No. 1 receiver.

Floyd, though, says there is no No. 1, that all the receivers have to work together to make the Arizona offense go.
