Cardinals GM Says He Wants Fitzgerald to Retire With Team, But Would Listen to Offers


You have to learn to decipher when someone is just saying a lot of words, but not saying anything of real substance. Read what Cardinals GM Steve Keim had to say about the Larry Fitzgerald trade rumors.

“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 the radio station.

“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.”

Keim did not dismiss the idea of listening to potential trades if teams inquired about Fitzgerald, according to reports.

All the GM said was that he personally hasn’t had a conversation about a trade and that they would like for Fitzgerald to retire as a Cardinal. That isn’t denying a trade could happen, which is why he said he would listen to offers.

It is all semantics, if the right offer comes Fitzgerald and his monster contract will be gone.
