Cardinals Can’t Franchise WR Larry Fitzgerald

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Arizona Cardinals will not be able to designate WR Larry Fitzgerald with their franchise tag at the end of the season.

This is will add pressure for them to reach a deal in the near future as Fitzgerald will be a hot commodity on the open market if he reaches that point. CardinalsĀ G.M. Rod Graves has already said that re-signing Fitzgerald is the teams top priority so there’s a chance a deal gets done during the season.

Arizona addressed the teams roster during the short-lived offseason so they’ve increased their chances of retaining him but Fitzgerald holds all the cards in this situation.

We have Larry Fitzgerald listed as the No. 4 best available free agent in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
