50 Million Reasons to Smile

50 Million Reasons to Smile

Posted by

Larry Fitzgerald has plenty of reasons to smile, he plays in beautiful sunny Arizona, just got a new quarterback in Kevin Kolb, and now he has a new a new 8 year contract worth $120 million with almost 50 million of it guaranteed. Congrats to one of the elite receivers getting paid, he definitely deserves it. And while I understand wanting to get paid now, it gives you security just in case you get injured, but if you stay healthy and the team doesn’t get better you’re stuck in a complete bad situation. Furthermore what if Kevin Kolb doesn’t produce and plays like a bum the Cardinals will suffer dearly and Fitzgerald will be stuck in a place that will go from beautiful and sunny to miserable and dry. There’s a lot that will be learned about Kolb this season, his production will directly reflect if the Cardinals will get their money’s worth out of Fitzgerald’s contract. Because if Kolb fails, you’re going to have an All-Pro wide out with no one to throw him the ball. But at least he’ll have his money


  1. You take that risk with anyone who signs a contract.

    True, but the Cardinals historically don’t spend the money necessary to keep their team relevant. Also not knowing what Kolb is, you’re taking a huge risk. I’m just not sure if it’s going to work, I’m not sold on Kolb and the Cardinals front office. If I was Larry I might’ve taken my chances in free agency to go to a better team with a better chance to win

  3. Nice post bud. I think it’s probably good for the Arizona Cardinal fans that they are going to get their favourite player back for next season but I just don’t think it’s good for the long term interests of the organization. Larry Fitzgerald is a great player but I’m just not sure that he deserves that kind of money as a Wide Receiver. It’s going to be interesting to see what type of team Arizona fields over the next few years and what type of quarterback Kevin Kolb turns out to be. Because great statistical seasons cannot justify Larry Fitzgerald’s contract if the Cardinals don’t win any games. I wonder if that kind of contract will hamper the organization from making significant moves to help the team. Also, you think you could check out my blog cuz I’d love to hear what you have to say. http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2011/08/21/larry-fitzgerald-is-only-a-wide-receiver/
