Larry Fitzgerald Signs New Deal

Cardinals general manager Steve Keim announced the deal Wednesday at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis, saying “we’re finished.” The Cardinals star wide receiver agreed to “essentially” a two-year contract Wednesday to stay with the only team he’s played for.

Keim did not disclose financial details. Fitzgerald will receive $22 million in guaranteed money over the course of the new contract, according to ESPN sources and multiple reports. Keim did not disclose financial details.

Fitzgerald, 31, has spent his entire 11-year career with the Cardinals and is the franchise’s all-time leader in every major receiving category. But Fitzgerald’s production has declined drastically over the past three seasons. The eight-time Pro Bowler had just 784 receiving yards — his lowest total since his rookie year — and a career-low two touchdowns in 2014.
