It sounds as if the next big thing for the Cardinals is to try to make sure the team doesn’t lose all-world wide out Larry Fitzgerald, and the club is going to start working on a new contract they hope to have done with the wide out by the opener which is on September 11th.
General Manager Rod Graves plans to re-open negotiations today with Larry Fitzgerald’s agent today and sees no reason a new contract can’t be done before Sept. 11, the start of the regular season. “If Larry is sincere about his willingness to remain here, then I believe we’ll get a deal worked out before the start of the season,” Graves said. “He says he is (sincere) and I believe him. A lot will be said for that once we enter into our talks and see how swiftly (they go).” Fitzgerald was not immediately available for comment. His agent, Eugene Parker, said earlier this week he is ready to talk whenever the Cardinals are. Parker could not be reached for comment Monday morning. Fitzgerald is in the last year of a four-year contract that paid him $10 million a year.
