Cardinals agree to 8-year, $120 million deal with star WR Larry Fitzgerald
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) ' The Arizona Cardinals and Larry Fitzgerald have agreed to an eight-year deal that could pay the star receiver as much as $120 million, making it one of the richest deals in the NFL.
Fitzgerald and team president Michael Bidwill appeared at a hastily called news conference Saturday night to announce the agreement.
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.
This is the third major contract with the Cardinals for Fitzgerald, who turns 28 on Aug. 31.
