The Arizona Cardinals defied the odds throughout the season as they battled a plethora of injuries and still managed to squeak out an 11-5 record.
However, being forced to play a third-string quarterback led to them being eliminated from the playoffs in the first round.
Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is set to make $15 million in base salary in the 2015 season, so he is a candidate to be cut from the team.
Fitzgerald had a forgettable 2014 season as he finished with just 63 catches for 784 yards and two touchdowns.
Despite the 31-year-old receiver’s supposed decline, head coach Bruce Arians campaigned for him to return to the team.
“We definitely, desperately want him to stay. He knows that. It’s really his decision,” Arians said to the Arizona Cardinals official website.
Cardinals general manager Steve Keim also wants Fitzgerald to remain in Arizona, and he said that he has intended for him to retire as a Cardinal.
