The details on the new one-year contract for Larry Fitzgerald have emerged and the Cardinals continue to make Fitz a well paid man.

It is basically the same contract as the last two years, with incentives Fitz can earn more.

The $11 million in cap will put Fitz at the 18th highest paid wide receiver in the NFL.

Fitz is coming off his lowest yardage season of his illustrious career, finishing with 69 catches for 734 yards and six touchdowns. He also threw the first touchdown of his career, a 32-yard strike to David Johnson.

Now, Fitz will have to provide even more, as Spotrac has the Fitz contract taking the Cardinals free agency cap room to $45 million and some change.

With expected and unexpected cuts, the Cardinals will likely fall right around $60 million in cap space, which means room for one or two big splashes in free agency.

As Tyler will point out later, the re-signing of Fitz should change nothing in the teams pursuit of other wide receivers as well.

It’s good to have Fitz back in for another year.
