The details of Larry Fitzgerald's contract, WR reportedly wanted 3 yrs on new deal

The specifics from year to year are now out in the public. We knew the Arizona Cardinals and Larry Fitzgerald agreed to a contract that would pay him $22 million in guaranteed money over two seasons.

Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport are reporting that Larry Fitzgerald and the Cardinals are nearing a cap restructure and extension that will keep the talented receiver in Arizona long term.

2015 NFL Combine: Mike Mayock compares Jaelen Strong to Larry Fitzgerald

While Arians is not one for drafting receivers early or for drafting bigger receivers, there is one draft prospect in the Cardinals' back yard who was compared recently to Fitzgerald when he came out of Pitt so many years ago. NFL Network draft analyst Mike...
