Addition of Ted Ginn should help Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Cardinals offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin believes that the addition of receiver Ted Ginn will only help the prospects for Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd to have big seasons in 2014

"[I]t's going to help the overall passing game a lot from a play-action standpoint and a drop-back standpoint," Goodwin said of Ginn's arrival per the Arizona Republic. "It's going to help Larry (Fitzgerald) and Michael (Floyd)."

The thinking is that Ginn will attract enough coverage to keep extra defenders from playing tight on Fitzgerald and Floyd. Without a third receiver boasting speed like Ginn, Fitzgerald had 954 yards and 10 touchdowns while Floyd posted 1,041 yards and five touchdowns.

Larry Fitzgerald aiming for 1,300-1,400 receiving yards, 13 scores
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

After five straight 1,000-yard receiving seasons, Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald has gone two straight without breaking that plateau. The 30-year-old star laid out his 2014 goals in response to a question about his recent contract restructuring and whether the team can afford to keep him in 2015.

“I don’t know what the future holds,” Fitzgerald told ESPN.com. “I can control what happens this year. Go for 1,300, 1,400 [receiving yards], 13 touchdowns, 1,000 catches in a Cardinals uniform. A large part of that is out of my control.

“You don’t control your destiny," he added. "That’s all I focus on, next year.”

Fitzgerald has posted three 1,400-yard seasons (2005, '07, 11). He caught a career-high 13 touchdowns in 2009.

Larry Fitzgerald playing inside more
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians believes receiver Larry Fitzgerald can be more effective moving around the formation and playing inside more. The shift began last season for Fitzgerald, who turned 30 in August.

“Guys lose a step at age 30,” Arians told the team's website. “It’s just natural. As hard as they train and everything, at 30 it’s just a different ballgame. They accept it, they want to become better players, they say help me become a better player than when I was 26. This is how you do it.”

A breakdown of Larry Fitzgerald's new deal
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald restructured his contract in order to give the team more cap room this offseason. ESPN provided a breakdown of his new deal.

Fitzgerald's contract for 2014 is worth $13 million, which includes a $1 million base salary, a $250,000 workout bonus and an $11.75 million roster bonus. His cap number for 2014 is $8.6 million.

In 2015, his cap number increases to $23.6 million. His contract that year will be worth $16.25 million because of an $8 million base salary and an $8 million roster bonus, plus a $250,000 workout bonus.

Fitzgerald's cap numbers for the final three years of his contract are $17.6 million in 2016 and $17.35 million in both 2017 and '18 -- the final two are option seasons.

Might this be Larry Fitzgerald's last year in Arizona?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald restructured his contract to give the team cap space, potentially to extend the contracts of Karlos Dansby and Patrick Peterson. But it does create a problem for the Cardinals heading into the 2015 season. 

That's because Fitzgerald's cap number for 2015 will be $23.6 million, an exorbitant amount for anyone. The number falls in each of the next three seasons but it's still between $17.35 and $20.6 million per season according to ESPN. 

According to ESPN blogger Josh Weinfuss, this could make 2014 a contract year for Fitzgerald. The team would be hard pressed to move around his money any further through the remainder of his deal and Fitzgerald might not be willing to take a pay cut. 

Fitzgerald will be 31 when the 2014 season starts and is coming off his second-straight sub-1,000-yard season.
