Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald recently signed a new deal that will keep him under contract through the 2018 season.

There’s been no word on the financial terms of the deal, but it will presumably give Fitzgerald ample money to afford the fine he received from the league this week.

PFT has confirmed with the league that Fitzgerald has been fined $24,309 for an illegal crackback block during a fruitless run by Adrian Peterson in the first quarter of last Sunday’s loss to the Texans.

Fitzgerald had nine catches for 91 yards and a touchdown in the game and moved past Tony Gonzalez into fifth place on the league’s list of career receiving yards. Another year would bump him even higher up the list, but Fitzgerald didn’t delve into his plans for 2018 when asked about the extension after the game.

    Dirtiest player in the NFL, LOL
    Not even close to being the dirtiest player,in but your post is certainly the dumbest so far in this thread.

  3. Fitzgerald didn’t delve into his future plans for 2018 after the game? The guy JUST SIGNED A CONTRACT EXTENSION FOR $11M DOLLARS for next season, signing an Extension makes his futures plans pretty freaking clear to me, he is coming back for 2018!!

    And why wouldn’t Fitzgerald come back? The guy is still playing at an Elite Top-5 NFL Pro-Bowl WR caliber level. Fitzgerald is 5th receiving yards this season with 770 yards, Fitz is 2nd in receptions with 69 receptions with 4TDs on the season, he is on pace for his 3rd straight 100+ catch 1000+YD season on pace for 1250+ receiving yards after leading the NFL last season, with just 5 more catch’s he will become the fastest WR to 1200 receptions in NFL History in 212 games compared to Jerry Rices 222 games. Fitzgerald is just climbing the All-Time leader boards at this point while still playing at an Elite level putting together another All-Pro caliber season, dude is a flat-out monster.
