Amidst all of the trade rumors surrounding wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, the Arizona Cardinals maintained they are not going to trade him.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is not going to be traded. 

This was confirmed by Cardinals GM Steve Keim in a radio interview with 620 AM in Arizona. He said,"I have not had one conversation regarding a trade with Larry Fitzgerald. We have every intent to have Larry Fitzgerald retire as a Cardinal. Period." 

According to Josh Weinfuss of ESPN, Fitzgerald's salary-cap hit in 2014 "will increase to $18 million while he earns $13 million. He is under contract until 2017, and his cap hit increases again in 2015 to $21.25 million, then drops to $18.25 million in 2016 and $15 million in 2017." 

These figures are traced back to the $120 million contract extension Arizona gave Fitzgerald in 2011.

Keim's comments virtually ends all speculation of Fitzgerald departing the Cardinals. On Oct. 27, ESPN's Adam Schefter wrote several tweets saying the All-Pro receiver could be on the trading block at the conclusion of the 2013 NFL season. 

"A trade for Cards WR Larry Fitzgerald will be in play this off-season, in likely event a deal not completed before Tuesday's trade deadline.

"Come off-season, Larry Fitzgerald and Cards will be on clock, when some believe a divorce is somewhere between possible and inevitable." 

The 30-year-old Fitzgerald, who had 48 receiving yards and a touchdown in Arizona's 27-13 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Oct. 27, was asked about the trade rumor going on at the time. He said he will only focus on what he has control over. 

"I don't know. I come to work every day and just focus on how I can help the Arizona Cardinals and help my team win. If they decide to move me, that happens. I have no control over any of that.

"I just focus on what I can do to improve and help my team." 

For further emphasis, Fox Sports Arizona was able to quote Keim one more time. He said,"Larry Fitzgerald is a Cardinal and will continue to remain a Cardinal." 

Fitzgerald has spent his entire 10-year NFL career in Arizona, amassing 10,883 receiving yards, 800 receptions and 82 touchdowns.

Palmer is looking at a nice matchup and is coming in hot. Should fantasy owners start him this week? Who would have thought the Arizona Cardinals would have the best record in the NFC?

Are the Cardinals and Lions contenders or are they playing Plinko?

Oct 30 2014 7:53am CDT | Source: SBNation

Parsing through the Cardinals' and Lions' 2014 success and determining how much is luck, and how much is skill. Are the upstart Arizona Cardinals and Detroit Lions paragons of teamwork and selflessness who know how to win close, win ugly and persevere? Or, as one could posit, are they lucky pucks in Plinko machines? As we tip toe into the second half of the season, these are important questions to consider. Both teams lead their divisions with an uncanny abili ...

Oct 30 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

People who don't like a doctor's diagnosis get a second opinion all of the time. How often have you read multiple reviews of movies, games, books or music to see past any perceived biases in the review? Yelp has become an instrumental aspect of any night on the town in an unfamiliar city.  The point is simple—we all like to get as much analysis as we can before making decisions in life. Why should fantasy football be any different? So allow me into yo ...

5 Plays That Cost Philadelphia Eagles a Win Against Arizona Cardinals

Oct 29 2014 8:45pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Few Philadelphia Eagles games in recent memory have provided as much instantaneous heartbreak as last Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Had just one play gone differently, Philadelphia could easily be 6-1 and in strong contention for home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. Instead, the Eagles are 5-2 and mired in second place in the NFC East; fortunately the Washington Redskins handed the Eagles a ...

Philadelphia Eagles Played Scared, and It Cost Them a Win

Oct 27 2014 9:26pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Two teams came into a Week 8 NFL contest at 5-1. One team continued its unprecedented run of success, and the other went home 5-2.  That's five wins, and two short yards from being undefeated. And the only thing we have to blame is fear itself.  Like the first time against the San Francisco 49ers, it again came down to a goal-line stand for the Philadelphia Eagles. But this time, against the Arizona Cardinals ...
