The Arizona Cardinals will be looking to add players to the roster this offseason. The problem is they will have $12.75 million tied up into Larry Fitzgerald. According to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic, the team will approach him about taking a pay cut and he will refuse:

The Cardinals haven’t approached Fitzgerald’s agent, Eugene Parker, about restructuring the contract, but they will. Negotiations will be interesting because Fitzgerald isn’t going to take a pay cut.

He will be open to a restructuring that might include converting salary into a bonus that can be prorated over the next few years.

Something has to give, because if Fitzgerald’s cap number doesn’t decrease, the Cardinals will be handicapped when it comes to extending other deals and signing free agents.

If I was Fitzgerald I wouldn’t be willing to take a pay cut either. The interesting option the Cardinals have is to cut Larry but I just can’t see that.
