Cardinals GM: Not Trying to Trade Larry Fitzgerald

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(TEMPE, Ariz.) -- A day after reports came out stating the Arizona Cardinals would listen to trade offers for seven-time Pro Bowl receiver Larry Fitzgerald after the season, Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said that wasn't the case.

"I can tell you two things, and I want to make this clear and simple -- I have not had one conversation with another NFL team regarding a trade with Larry Fitzgerald," Keim told Arizona Sports 620 AM on Monday.

"Number two, starting with [Cardinals president] Michael Bidwill on down, it is our intent for Larry Fitzgerald to retire a Cardinal. Period. If there is any gray area there, let me know, and we can get that out."

The 30-year-old Fitzgerald, who became the youngest receiver to accumulate 800 NFL catches Sunday, will earn $13 million next season, with a salary-cap hit of $18 million. 

In eight games this season, Fitzgerald has 36 catches for 470 yards and five touchdowns.
