CARDINALS TO KEEP LARRY FITZGERALD?
Regardless of how the season ends for the Arizona Cardinals they are a facing a tough off season. Not only do they have to figure out how to get so many guys healthy and ready to play, but the biggest task they face is figuring out what to do with Larry Fitzgerald.
If the Cardinals don't either wave him or trade him by early March they will take a big salary cap hit. I know that sounds crazy to get rid of a guy based on money and not talent but that's the reality of professional sports now. Great players end up getting cut because it is cheaper to get rid of them and bring in someone younger.
Many people feel that Larry Fitzgerald isn't worth the money he is owed. They feel with Michael Floyd as the number one receiver and rookie John Brown emerging as a dependable number two that the Cardinals will be just fine without him.
The Cardinals have already said they won't cut the all pro receiver. That doesn't mean they won't trade him. They need to keep Fitzgerald not only because he is a fan favorite but because of his value to the team. It was clear that the Cardinals were trying to phase Fitzgerald out of the offense at the beginning of the season. We;; as the season progressed so did the need for Fitzgerald. He has played well and if the Cardinals want to make a deep playoff run he needs to be a major part of the game plan.
