Cards, Fitzgerald agree on 4 years, $40M
After the Arizona Cardinals had made it clear they had no plans to trade Larry Fitzgerald, they are on the verge of locking up the superstar wide receiver for the next four years. Pending NFL approval, Fitzgerald and the Cardinals have agreed upon a four-year contract extension worth $40 million, as announced on Fitzgerald's offficial website, larry-fitzgerald.com.
The two-time Pro Bowler led the NFC with 100 receptions and 10 touchdowns in the 2007 season. "I'm very happy with this. My intent was to stay with the Cardinals, I'm grateful that we were able to get this done," said Fitzgerald on his site.
The contract provides for him to get $30 million in guaranteed money as he earns $33 million over the first three years. It also includes a no-trade clause, meaning the Cardinals cannot deal Fitzgerald to another team without his consent.
