The Arizona Cardinals will have future Hall of Fame wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald back for a 16th season, as they have agreed to terms on a one-year deal.
The Cardinals issued the following statement on Wednesday:
“No player has meant more to this franchise or this community than Larry Fitzgerald,” Cardinals President Michael Bidwill said. “In my discussions with him, it was clear that he is as driven and passionate as ever. We are thrilled he’ll be back for 2019.
Fitzgerald was motivated to return for another season following the hiring of Kliff Kingsbury.
“Hell of a coach. … Look at his resume,” Fitzgerald said following the hiring of Kingsbury. “He’s innovative offensively. That’s the wave of the future right now, so I’m excited for the chance to meet him.
Fitzgerald hauled in 69 catches for 734 yards and six touchdowns last season for Arizona.
Cardinals’ Kliff Kingsbury States Commitment to Josh Rosen
Amid a number of rumors that the Arizona Cardinals would use the 1st overall pick to select quarterback Kyler Murray in this April’s NFL Draft, new head coach Kliff Kingsbury has stated his commitment to young signal caller Josh Rosen.
According to AZCardinals.com’s Darren Urban, Kingsbury was asked about the possibility of the team drafting Murray and responded by stating that Rosen is “our guy”.
Rosen was the Cardinals’ first round draft pick last season, and was underwhelming in his rookie season, although the Cardinals didn’t have much success as a whole.
Rosen threw for 2,278 yards, 11 touchdowns, 14 interceptions with a 55.2% completion percentage last season for Arizona.
Cardinals Could Trade Number One Pick
“While there are plenty of defensive options for Arizona to take at No. 1, with a new coach in Kliff Kingsbury, the Cardinals would be better suited to trade back to the middle of the top 10 and stockpile picks Kingsbury can use to bolster what was the league’s worst offense in 2018.
While they’re already slated to have about nine or 10 picks, they could increase that by three or four more this year by trading back, and use those picks to essentially revamp one or both sides of the ball.”
Cardinals Sign Brooks Reed
According to the NFL Network insider, Reed’s deal will be worth “roughly” $2 million.
