- According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Fitzgerald’s one-year deal is for $11 million, plus incentives.
“I think he’s playing as good as anybody, honestly,” Kingsbury said at the end of the season. “You watch what he does week-in and week-out, the little things, the blocking and the toughness that he brings to the offensive side of the football. We missed him twice for huge plays yesterday. He’s just still creating separation. He does it all.”
Fitzgerald, 36, 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 was once again in position to be an unrestricted free agent in 2020.
In 2019, Fitzgerald appeared in 16 games and recorded 75 receptions for 804 yards receiving and four touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 50 receiver out of 122 qualifying players.
