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.

Larry Fitzgerald caught six passes for a season-high 98 yards and his first touchdown of the year for the Cardinals (4-1), who bounced back from a 41-20 drubbing at Denver. With Seat ...

GLENDALE, Ariz. – For nearly five weeks, Carson Palmer couldn’t throw the ball.

"I’m not going to say I wasn’t nervou ...

Fantasy football advice, Week 6: Who to start/sit for Washington vs. Cardinals

Oct 12 2014 7:55am CDT | Source: SBNation

A 3-1 team against a 1-4 team, and the 3-1 team gets to play host. This could go poorly. The Arizona Cardinals have been good this year, sitting at 3-1 and tied for the NFC West's best record. Washington has been really bad, with four losses in five games and one of the worst records in the NFC. Those two teams face off Sunday, in a matchup of teams going in different directions. The teams have several injuries worth mentioning. Washington is still without quarterback Robert Grif ...
