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.

Fantasy football trade advice: Over/underperformers to start 2014

Sep 26 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: SBNation

We're taking a look at players who have overachieved to start 2014, along with the big names who have let us down through the first three weeks. We're only three weeks into the 2014 season, and already some fantasy owners are ready to give up. Top draft picks who don't produce will cause that kind of letdown. But it's still way too early to give up on some players. We only have a small sample size so far. Here, we w ...

Patrick Willis not fined for roughing, unnecessary roughness penalties

Sep 25 2014 4:30pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

In news that should surprise nobody, Patrick Willis was not fined for his hits on the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3. The shoddy officiating grows more and more frustrating by the day. Talk about good timing! Earlier this afternoon, Wes Hanson discussed how penalties are diminishing the quality of NFL games. And shortly after, we learn that Patrick Willis was not fined for his two "roughing" of his penalties in Week 3. After not getting flagged a single time in 2013, Willis ...

The Ticker, Week 4: The worse you're doing, the more you need the waiver wire

Are the Cardinals on the Verge of Becoming One of NFL's Elite Teams?

Sep 21 2014 9:08pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Bruce Arians' 3-0 Arizona Cardinals have shown that they have an offense that can win whether Carson Palmer or Drew Stanton is under center and a defense that can shut out opponents when it matters most. That kind of balance has led them to an undefeated start to the season and the lead in one of, if not the, NFL's toughest divisions.  After finishing 10-6 in their first year in Arians' system and showing their ...

How to watch 49ers vs. Cardinals 2014: Live streaming, TV schedule, radio and more

Sep 21 2014 8:30am CDT | Source: SBNation

Two of the NFC West's dark horses duke it out in Phoenix. The NFC West finished the 2013 season with three double-digit win teams. Two of them, the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals, meet on Sunday for the first time this year. If the game is anything like the last meeting between the teams, it might just be the matchup of the week. Arizona and San Francisco went back-and-forth in Week 17 last season with San Francisco pulling out a 23-20 victory late. Despite a dis ...

Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 3: 49ers-Cardinals features Vernon Davis question mark

Sep 21 2014 8:20am CDT | Source: ninersnation

Last week wasn't pretty for the San Francisco 49ers. On the bright side, fantasy football stars Frank Gore and Michael Crabtree got their first touchdowns of the year despite Colin Kaepernick delivering a turnover packed stinker. Otherwise, it's been an okay start of the season for the 49ers (fantasy wise), but they'll go against the best defense they've seen all season in week 3. Sunday's game in Arizona could b ...

Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 3: 49ers vs. Cardinals

Sep 21 2014 7:52am CDT | Source: SBNation

Not many would have guessed the Cardinals would be the NFC West's lone 2-0 team. Even two weeks into the season, not many people would have expected the Arizona Cardinals, at 2-0, to be the NFC West's top team. But with the division's other three teams sitting at 1-0, the Cardinals, who missed the playoffs last year despite winning 10 games, are starting out well at least. Sunday, they host division rival San Francisco 49e ...
