Nothing official — unless you want to take the fact there is a press conference in a short bit featuring team president Michael Bidwill and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, which is a huge tell — but Fitz has got his extension. Reports have it as an eight-year contract with $50 million guaranteed and worth as much as $120 million (although that’s the agent talking, so there is always the case of waiting to see the actual deal).
That length means that Fitz probably isn’t going anywhere, but again, we need to see details. If the last three years are backloaded heavily, maybe that can change. Obviously, though, Fitzgerald’s stated desire to stay in Arizona was true — just like he was saying.
Much more later, and yes, we plan to stream this live on azcardinals.com right on this link. Press conference is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Az time.
