The NFL's Arizona Cardinals and Larry Fitzgerald have agreed to an eight-year deal that could pay the star receiver as much as $120 million, making it one of the richest deals in the NFL.
Fitzgerald and team president Michael Bidwill appeared at a news conference last night in Tempe, Ariz., to announce the agreement, which features guarantees near $50 million.
Fitzgerald insisted he “hates this part of sports,’’ but he certainly has made a boatload of money. This is the third major contract he has signed, and he doesn’t turn 28 until Aug. 31.
“I am really happy to put it behind us and it wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for the Bidwill family’s hard work in making this thing happen,’’ Fitzgerald said.
Above, he makes a great catch in a preseason game against the Packers.
