    Cards extend Fitzgerald

    Anyone who has been dreaming of a deal that would bring Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, Jr., back to the Twin Cities can forget about it.

    Does that mean that he get the 32 million for the last 2 years of his current contract plus the 4 year 40 million. Making a total of 6 years 72 million?
    I am suprised that he made the deal. He could have just played 2 more years for 32 million and then been an unrestricted free agent and could go to any team he wanted for probably more than 4 year 40million.

    Bet they wish they could have got that done before all the [s]good[/s] high priced FA's were signed.
    ;D

    I don't think the Cards could even put together a full roster with his cap hit with how it stood.
    The guy on the radio (can't remember who) said they wouldn't even have enough cap space left to sign a minimum veteran.
    Could have been full of BS though... I only caught the last blurb.

    Right but I am sure that fitz still expects to be paid. If someone owed me 32 million for 2 years I certainly wouldn't wave it just to get a 4 year 40 million.

    You listen to Sirius?
    Adam Shine (Moving the Chains) was talking about that very same thing a week or so ago.

    Re: Cards extend Fitzgerald

    According to an announcement posted on what appears to be his personal web site, Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald has agreed to a
    four-year, $40 million contract with the team.

    Fitzgerald's site says that he'll get $30 million guaranteed, and $33 million over the next three years.

    That's about when I heard it...Might have been on Sirius...Again, I only listen when I'm traveling as I'm not a subscriber but it seems to come free with most rental cars.
