Fitzergerald to Eagles rumor...

FOX Sports on MSN - Rumors - Ben Maller's NFL rumors

Cards Fitzgerald to Birds?

The latest rumor has the Arizona Cardinals trading Pro Bowl wideout Larry Fitzgerald of Minneapolis to Philadelphia before next month's draft. Fitzgerald is guaranteed $33 million for the next two seasons, and if the Cardinals were to designate him as a franchise player following the 2009 season, via the NFL's labor deal, they would have to pay him $21 million in 2010. Otherwise, he could become a free agent, and Arizona would get nothing in return. -- Pioneer Press

I do not want to see him going to Philly....

"Eagles make offer for Cards Fitzgerald
My source did tell me that the Eagles offered Lito Sheppard and a 2nd-round pick and the Cardinals said no. Expect the Cardinals' asking price to dip a bit as they get closer to having to actually pay Larry Fitzgerald his insane contract money. -- GCobb.com "

Re: Fitzergerald to Eagles rumor...

oh the quote I put above is from the same link, there is a lot of rumors on there. Kearse going to the Vikings...but I thought the Larry fitz one to a division rival warranted a thread

Re: Fitzergerald to Eagles rumor...

Fitzgerald has an amazingly horrible contract, so if he does go to the Eagles, he will ruin their cap somehow. I don't want to see his talent over there, but he will handcuff any team he goes to.

Ugh -- I hope not. I don't want Fitz in our division, unless he's in the B&G.

We just cleared what, 30 million in cap space in a few weeks (were 22 over not 8 under I think), whats another 20 for the best young receiver in the game!!

Clearly having Fitz isnt enough to win, look at the Cards, but id love to have a guy like that on our team. No downs with him, high character, catches everything...

Were just not in a position to go after him

Re: Fitzergerald to Eagles rumor...

I'd love to see him in a Skins' uni but it ain't gonna happen. God I hope he doesn't go to the Eagles, that would be a great move for them.

Re: Fitzergerald to Eagles rumor...

That's a couple of days old isn't it? I think the latest is the Cardinals and Fitzgerald working on an extension and the Cardinals and Eagles still discussing a trade for Lito, but it would involve the Cardinals' first round pick, not Fitzgerald.

The article was written (or mabye updated) 3 hours ago...with that being said I dont know much about the source, and you seem to be on top of all of this news so Ill trust that if you say it.

I hope youre right about the Eagles not getting him...I dont want the Eagles to have their pick either, but definitly not Fitz.

If the Eagles get Fitz, you gotta think secondary becomes a bigger priority for us. Whether that be a safety or corner

Re: Fitzergerald to Eagles rumor...

I just heard on ESPN radio the Cards are not trying to trade him, they are working towards reworking his deal.

Re: Fitzergerald to Eagles rumor...

It was a dream about Fitz, I really didn't think we'd get him. It's more that I didn't want him in the division.

Re: Fitzergerald to Eagles rumor...

I just read that they are blaming Fitz for the Cards not getting Alan Faneca, saying that hes taking to long to rework his contract.

Thats not really fair to him. The guy has two years left and they agreed to pay him that to begin with, and hes trying to work out an extension to stay with them. the guy is going to be the highest paid receiver in the league, those deals arent easy

Re: Fitzergerald to Eagles rumor...

Hey, they might have thought his bonuses wouldn't be met, but they were. The kid deserves his payday. If you handcuff yourself with contracts, you can't blame the player for not restructuring right away. We're talking significant cash this kid is getting over the next two years.
