The Cardinals know how they want to spend all that salary cap space.
“Our number one priority at this point is to get an extension for Larry Fitzgerald,” G.M. Rod Graves said Tuesday on PFT Live. “We are prepared to make him our highest paid player in our history. We’re prepared to make him one of the highest paid players in the National Football League. I see no reason why we can’t get this deal in place before the start of the season.”
Asked about Braylon Edwards, Graves confirmed the team had discussed adding him like other players. But Graves quickly noted that getting Fitzgerald signed is the team’s big priority before the start of the 2011 campaign.
