Arizona GM: No trade talks for Larry Fitzgerald
Arizona Cardinal’s GM Steve Keim is denying reports that the team is looking to trade star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald after the 2013 season, according to NFL.com.
Talk that the Cardinal’s were putting their All-Pro receiver on the block after the season has flared up recently, but Keim says he intends to keep Fitzgerald in Arizona:
“I have not had one conversation regarding a trade with Larry Fitzgerald,” general manager Steve Keim told 620 AM in Arizona. “We have every intent to have Larry Fitzgerald retire as a Cardinal. Period.”
Fitzgerald says he is staying focused on doing his job in each game and helping his team win and not worrying about the trade talk:
‘I come to work every day and just focus on how I can help the Arizona Cardinals and help my team win. If they decide to move me, that happens. I have no control over any of that.’
Fitzgerald became the youngest receiver in NFL history to reach 800 career catches on Sunday, in the Cardinals’ 27-13 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
