Will they keep him?
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is meeting with the team in an effort to work out an affordable deal that will keep him in Arizona.
The Cardinals were unable to remain Super Bowl contenders late in the season as the large amount of injuries finally caught up to them, and they were eliminated from the first round of the playoffs.

Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald had a rough 2014 season, which was largely due to being forced to catch passes from three different quarterbacks.
The Cardinals are working on a deal that will keep him in Arizona and allow him to retire with the team that drafted him in 2004 with the third overall pick.
“It would be awfully tough for me to see Larry Fitzgerald wearing another uniform,” Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said to Arizona Sports Radio.
The Cardinals will have to restructure Fitzgerald’s contract if they want to keep him since he is due $16 million for the 2015 season, and releasing him would save the team $9.2 million in salary cap space.
He is also due an $8 million roster bonus on March 14, which is just four days after free agency is set to begin.
