Cardinals star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is one of the best players in the NFL, and an icon in Arizona. Fitzgerald, who has played his entire career with the Cardinals since coming out of University of Pittsburgh in 2004, signed one of the richest deals in NFL history in 2011, which was signed to keep him in Arizona through 2018.
The contract was an eight-year deal that could pay the star receiver as much as $120 million, and it guaranteed near $50 million. The deal was by far the biggest in the franchise’s history. The six additional years after 2012 would be worth $17 million each.
Fitzgerald’s productivity seemed to slip a bit after the 2011 season, recorded less than 1,000 yards in each of the next three seasons. But he experienced a bit of a renaissance in 2015, hauling in 109 grabs for 1,215 yards to go along with nine touchdowns.
He came up big for the Cardinals against the Packers in the 2015 Divisional playoff game, scoring the game-winnig touchdown in overtime:
And his recent contributions and 2011 contract were not forgotten by the fans, who are glad to see him still performing:
