The Arizona Cardinals are working on keeping wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald in the fold through 2018.
Arizona is currently working on an extension with Fitzgerald, who has contemplated retirement, that would keep him in the fold beyond this season, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
The extension would be similar to what Fitzgerald signed with the Cards back in August that carried an $11M base salary.
Fitzgerald may be enticed by the possibility of playing with a potent Arizona team, one that has been ravaged by injuries this season, at full strength for one final run next year.
Cardinals GM Steve Keim Says Josh Rosen to Play When Time is Right
The Arizona Cardinals are continuing to be patient in regards to the readiness of rookie signal caller Josh Rosen, and despite starting the season 0-2, Cardinals general manager Steve Keim says that the team will stay the course.
“Some guys have played too early and it has crippled their career,” Keim said, during an appearance on Arizona Sports 98.7 (h/t Darren Urban of Cardinals.com). “I’m not going to name names, but I think a lot of us can think of certain players. Then there are guys who have come in and had success right away. But usually it’s a rocky road.”
Arizona’s offense has sputtered, ranking last in yards per game, passing yards per game, and yards per attempt, prompting many fans to call for Rosen to replace Sam Bradford as the team’s starting quarterback.
With Bradford manning the offense, the Cardinals have scored 6 points.
Cardinals Sign David Johnson to Contract Extension

Cardinals Release Scooby Wright
Wright, 23, will be subject to waivers since he has less than four years of NFL experience, creating the possibility that another team could put in a claim for him prior to him hitting the open free agent market.
Wright was promoted from the practice squad last season and only registered one tackle while being on the Cardinals’ roster for ten games.
