Larry Fitzgerald has publicly stated that he would gladly restructure his recent 4-year, $40 million newly-restructured contract if it would help keep Anquan Boldin in Arizona. Earlier this season during training camp, Boldin stated that he would rather be traded than stay in Arizona, claiming that Cardinals’ management failed to follow-through on a promise to him in the offseason. Boldin has 2 years remaining on his $22.75 million contract – a contract that pays him $4 million this year, a year in which he had 89 catches, 1,038 yds, and 11 TDs even missing four games with injuries AND making the Pro Bowl. Fitz, also elected to the Pro Bowl, finished the regular season with 96 receptions, 1,431 yds, and 12 TDs.
Fitz and Boldin are arguably the BEST tandem WRs in the league today, and having been together 5 years, neither of them wish to break up their amazing relationship. Boldin stated that he does appreciate Fitz’s offer and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus (seemingly every athlete’s agent these days) will speak with Rod Graves after the (Cardinals win) the Super Bowl.
