The Cardinals and Larry Fitzgerald have FINALLY reached a deal. Fitz signed a 4-year, $40 million extension yesterday, complete with a $30 million guarantee and a no-trade clause, ensuring he will remain a Cardinal until 2011.
This is great news to Arizona fans and co-stud-WR Anquan Boldin. The tandem have become one of the most successful receiving duos in the history of the league.
Despite Fitz and ex-head coach Denny Green being lifelong chums, sources state that Fitz has “warmed” to new coach Ken Whisenhunt. In fact, the two were recently spotted courtside at the Suns/Spurs game, and were chatting quite a bit. Hmmm, I suppose there’s a tax write-off for someone there.
And in other news:
The Atlanta Falcons must be desperate. After cutting QB Joey Harrington, they turned around and re-signed him to a 1-year, $1 million contract.
RB Warrick Dunn is returning to Tampa Bay. QB Trent Green is set for the next 3 seasons in St. Louis. Ex-Bronco WR Javon Walker is off to Oakland along with ex-Patriot Gibril Wilson. WR Marty Booker is off to Chicago, after the Bears released both Mushin Muhammed and Bernard Berrian. RB Julius Jones has defected from Dallas to Seattle, leaving Shaun Alexander’s future uncertain.
Rachelle Washington, the women who filed suit against Randy Moss just prior to the Super Bowl has requested the case be dismissed. So much for her 15 minutes of fame.
Now I have a headache…please excuse me while I lie down.
