The Arizona Cardinals are one of the NFL's early season surprises at 4-4. But it's because of a ferocious defense, and not an uneven passing game.
"I just focus on what I can do to improve and help my team."
Trading Fitzgerald, even in the offseason, sounds unlikely. The Cardinals would save $8 million against the cap by dealing Fitzgerald next, but they also would have $10 million on the cap for a player who's no longer there. (And lose their best offensive player in process.)
The timing of the report does make us wonder who exactly is interested in a Fitzgerald trade or new contract. He's due $18 million next season, and some sort of negotiation should be coming. Fitzgerald's agents already could have started the process.
