Not surprisingly, Larry Fitzgerald is now likely set to be a Cardinal for the rest of his career.
It’s been reported that Fitzgerald’s new contract is for eight years and $120 million, with $50 million guaranteed. This makes him the highest-paid WR in the NFL, and in my opinion, a contract that is well worth it for the Cardinals. Fitzgerald has had 1,000 yards 5 of the last 6 seasons (in 2006 he had 946 yards in 13 games played), and has had double digit TDs in 3 of the last 4 (I would bet my life it would have been 4 consecutive seasons if they had a decent QB last season). This gives the newly long-term signed Kolb a top-5 WR for the forseeable future. Best of all for the Cardinals is that Fitzgerald is only 27, meaning that, barring injury, Fitzgerald still has several years of dominant football ahead of him.
If Kolb plays as well as the Cardinals hope, then this combination could quickly become one of the most dangerous in the NFL.
