Cardinals agree to 8-year deal with Fitzgerald
Saturday, August 20, 2011
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals and Larry Fitzgerald have agreed to an eight-year contract that could keep the star receiver with the team through the 2018 season.
Terms of the agreement were not released in the team's announcement Saturday night.
General manager Rod Graves has said the Cardinals were prepared to make Fitzgerald the highest-paid player in team history and one of the highest-paid in the NFL.
Fitzgerald already holds most of the franchise's receiving records and he shattered most of the NFL playoff receiving records in the team's Super Bowl run after the 2008 season.
