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.

Let's face it: Having a game-changing wide receiver on your NFL fantasy football team might be more fun than anything else in the competition. The overall numbers are still slanted toward multipurpose backs who can catch and hit the hole between the tackles, and quarterbacks like Peyton Manning and Drew Brees throw up monstrous numbers week in and week out.  However, few things are sweeter than the special wideout who can break a play f ...

Demaryius Thomas Extension Could Be a Challenge for the Denver Broncos

Jun 17 2014 7:26am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

M2M Russian Open - Day One
Since quarterback Peyton Manning’s arrival in Denver in 2012, Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas has been one of the best receivers in the league. It would be easy to downgrade Thomas’ performance because Manning is throwing him the ball, but Thomas has also helped Manning reach new career highs in yards and touchdowns. The 2014 season is the last year on Thomas’ contract, so the Broncos need to give him an exten ...

Arizona Cardinals: Position Breakdown, Depth Chart Analysis at Wide Receiver

Starkey Hearing Foundation 2014 So The World May Hear Gala
Last offseason, the Arizona Cardinals receiving corps looked thin after Larry Fitzgerald and second-year wideout Michael Floyd. Andre Roberts was coming off his best season, a 64-catch, 759-yard, five-touchdown performance that had some thinking he could be even better from the slot once Floyd took over on the outside. That did not happen, as Roberts averaged just 11 yards per reception—9.8 yards from the slot—and ended up with fewer than 500 yards receiving for the fi ...
