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.
