Offensive guard Deuce Lutui's time as a Cardinal appears to be over as he recently met with the 49ers and has other visits set up.

--Offensive guard Deuce Lutui's time as a Cardinal appear to be over. A free agent, Lutui recently visited the 49ers and has a visit with another team scheduled, according to his agent. A starter from 2006-10, Lutui barely played last season as he continued to struggle with his weight. If Lutui is in shape, he is a solid player. If he's not, it's hard to play him. Lutui's value on the market is hurt because he can play only one position, guard.

--Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald recently visited Africa along with former teammate Anquan Boldin. The two joined Oxfam America to aid drought victims. Fitzgerald travels the world every offseason, but most of the trips are for personal pleasure. "These (trips) are much more rewarding," Fitzgerald told the team's website,

--Like most NFL players, the Cardinals are enjoying having more time off this offseason. That's courtesy of the new CBA. Fitzgerald is one of the club's hardest workers yet he values his time away from the game and training for it. "Ball will be there when I get back," he told the team's website.

--Running back Ryan Williams, who is rehabilitating from a torn patellar tendon, estimated he is 75 percent recovered. Williams remains optimistic that he will be ready by the start of training camp in July.
