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.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Darnell Dockett, among the most durable players in the NFL over the past decade, was carted off the field with an injured right knee after the Arizona Cardinals began their final week of training camp Monday.

John Brown's Updated Fantasy Outlook After Michael Floyd's Preseason Injury

Aug 10 2014 10:01am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

America, it's time to get to know John Brown.  You probably already know a John Brown. It seems like a common enough name, after all. But the John Brown who happens to be a rookie wide receiver on the Arizona Cardinals is hardly a common talent.  On Saturday, Brown was thrust into a prominent role for the Cardinals in their preseason opener against the Houston Texans, as Michael Floyd missed the game due to a groin injury. Brown responded in a big way, catching five passes f ...

Clowney, Watt Are Texans' Lone Positives in Preseason Debut Thrashing

Aug 9 2014 10:50pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Jadeveon Clowney's first two series in a Houston Texans uniform went well. Unfortunately, football is a team sport, and Houston quickly fell behind as players not named Jadeveon Clowney or J.J. Watt also attempted to play NFL football. The Texans played a fairly vanilla game plan, with Clowney dropping back into coverage on occasion. Clowney was beat over the top for a touchdown on a play that was called back on an offensive pena ...

Palmer 5 for 5 as Cardinals dominate Texans

Aug 9 2014 10:40pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Carson Palmer was perfect in his brief appearance, and the rest of the Arizona Cardinals were almost as good Saturday night in a 32-0 rout of Houston, a dismal debut for Bill O’Brien as Texans coach. Palmer was 5 for 5 for 84 yards and a touchdown in his lone series in the preseason opener. Ryan Fitzpatrick had a rough first game as Houston’s quarterback. Playing the entire first half, he completed 6 of 14 passes for 55 yards with two interceptions as the Cardinals took ...
