Stud wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is expected to sign an enormous deal with the Arizona Cardinals.  The record deal will keep Fitzgerald in Arizona for a long time.

Larry Fitzgerald is expected to sign a record eight-year, $120 million deal.  ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the deal will include $50 million in guaranteed money.  Fitzgerald would be under contract through 2018.  He currently is 27 years old.  The new deal would add six additional years after 2012 worth $17 million a year.

The Arizona Cardinals traded starting cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a 2nd-round pick to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for quarterback Kevin Kolb.  The Cardinals also gave Kolb a $63 million deal (with $20 million guaranteed).  Arizona absolutely had to lock up Larry Fitzgerald to give Kevin Kolb a legitimate target.  Fitzgerald is a five-time Pro Bowler who has scored at least six touchdowns in all of his seven NFL seasons.  History suggests this is a wise investment.
