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.

Arizona Cardinals vs. New York Giants: Breaking Down New York's Game Plan

Sep 11 2014 11:03pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

As he does every week, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning stood in front of his locker to meet the media and never once changed his facial expression, not even when a reporter dared to ask the question that’s been on everyone’s mind following the team’s 35-14 debacle in Detroit. “I don’t know if there are things that are broken,” Manning said. “I think it’s just a matter of we’ve got to find out what we do well, what all we can handle as an offensive group, not throw more on ...

Palmer Establishes Blueprint for Offensive Success in Cardinals' Week 1 Win

Sep 9 2014 1:41am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Veteran quarterback Carson Palmer proved on Monday night that the Arizona Cardinals are a team to be reckoned with.  While most fans have come to realize that the Cardinals defense is stout, few understand exactly what the Arizona offense is capable of accomplishing.  The Cardinals finished the 2013 season with a 10-6 record and nearly made the playoffs, thanks in large part to the league's sixth-best defense (317.4 yards per game allowed). However, it is worth noting that veteran quarte ...
