ESPN: Fitz contract talks begining

29

Some good news for you guys. I think that he should get whatever he wants if it will keep him here. "The Arizona Cardinals and Larry Fitzgerald are having preliminary discussions about extending the wide receiver's contract that will likely pay Fitzgerald between $40 million and $50 million in guaranteed money, according to sources. Fitzgerald, who turned 27 last month, signed a six-year, $60 million contract after the Cardinals drafted him third overall in 2004. After his performance triggered significant escalator clauses during his fourth year and presented salary cap challenges for the Cardinals, Fitzgerald then signed a new four-year, $40 million deal in 2008. Fitzgerald will enter 2011 in the final year of that contract and his new deal could make him the highest-paid non-quarterback in NFL history."
