We mentioned a report earlier today that the Arizona Cardinals are looking to trade wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.

Cardinals general manager Steve Keim made an appearance on  Arizona Sports 620 and made it clear they don’t plan on trading Fitzgerald.

“I can tell you two things, and I want to make this clear and simple — I have not had one conversation with another NFL team regarding a trade with Larry Fitzgerald,” Keim told the radio station, via ESPN.com.

“Number two, starting with [Cardinals president] Michael Bidwill on down, it is our intent for Larry Fitzgerald to retire a Cardinal. Period. If there is any gray area there, let me know, and we can get that out.”

With Fitzgerald’s cap number climbing to $18 million in 2014,  the Cardinals will either have to restructure his contract, release him or trade him.
