Cardinals Sign WR Larry Fitzgerald To One-Year, $11M Deal



Field Yates reports that the Cardinals signed WR Larry Fitzgerald to a one-year, $11 million salary to go along with some incentives.

The Arizona Cardinals announced Wednesday that WR Larry Fitzgerald has agreed to return for the 2019 season and has signed a one-year contract.

Fitzgerald was expected to take some time to announce his plans for 2019, but he made a decision much sooner than last year. 

The Cardinals have a new head coach in Kliff Kingsbury, so it will be interesting to see how Fitzgerald does in another new offensive system.

Fitzgerald, 35, is a former first-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2004. He agreed to renegotiate his seven-year $113 million contract and signed a two-year, $22 million deal with Arizona that was fully guaranteed included a no-trade clause back in 2015.

Fitzgerald has agreed to a few one-year extensions in recent years and he’s once again in position to be an unrestricted free agent in 2019.

In 2018, Fitzgerald appeared in 16 games and caught 69 receptions for 734 yards receiving and six touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 37 receiver out of 122 qualifying players.

We had him featured in our Top 50 – 2019 NFL Free Agents list.

  1. WOW!!!!! PFF had Fitzgerald ranked 37 out of 122 receivers. Yet! Fitz had 69 rec. 734 yds. 6 TDS in 16 games at age 35. Those numbers are great considering Fitz had a rookie QB, no offensive line and a coaching staff that had no clue on how to use David Johnson. Under Kingsbury look for Fitz’ numbers to be up there with the top 10 next season.
    Fitz takes great care of himself like Tom Brady. And barring some catastrophic injury or lack of desire for the game, Fitz will be playing for at least 2-3 more years. Fitz has a “shot” at the GOAT Rice’s career receptions and receiving yards marks. Why not keep playing? Fitz is an extension of the coaches on the field. And is helping Josh Rosen understand the offensive game plans from a receiver’s point of view.
    I wonder where PFF has Elisha Manning ranked amongst other qualified QBs. Mara, Gettleman and Shurmur don’t want that STAT put out there.
