Less than a rumor (but good for you for adding that to your thread title!).

I don't know if Arizona would give him up for a 1st round pick, but I think it would make all kinds of sense from the Chiefs' end.

Is it worth talking about? No. Because it's less than a rumor and even if this kind of thing was in the realm of possibility, everyone here (I think) would have pretty much the same response.

So, it would be fun, but it's not worth talking about. Especially not right now.

But not for a fucking 1st round pick. I'd give them a 2nd round pick and a conditional pick in 2012. Use the 1st round pick next year and draft a fucking QB.

Just for comparisons.....Matt Leinart couldn't get the ball to Fitz. Do you think Matt Cassel could?

Fitz is extremely frustrated in going from pro bowl every year catching balls from HOFer Warner to virtually dissapearing this year due to having broke-dick QBs throwing to him.

Fitz has a no-trade clause which means he can choose which teams he is dealt to and block a trade to any team to which he does not want to go.

Matt Cassel.

10-15-2010, 10:03 AM
Especially not right now.

Trade deadline is Oct. 19th. If we are looking at using a 1st rounder on a WR next April, I would definately look into this type of deal. If not, then nothing to see here.

Maybe we could get Warner to come along too. You know, to throw the ball at him.

I mean, somebody has to throw him the ball, right?

Marshall brought back 2 2nd round picks so at the very least you will have to give that up.

You would be better off waiting for another chance at a Boldin like trade for a 3rd and 4th or even better the deal the Pats got giving up a 4th for Moss.

Marshall, Boldin, and Moss were traded by motivated sellers, to varying extents. I don't see any reason for Arizona to be in a hurry to move Fitzgerald so I can't imagine them being willing to take any of the deals you described above. If they were willing to take any of them, the Chiefs should jump on it today, IMO.

There is no price. There's no way the Arizona Cardinals trade Larry Fitzgerald.

He's not Randy Moss, a guy with a chip on his shoulder in a contract year that's been a locker room cancer.

It's Larry Fitzgerald. A great team mate, maybe the hardest working receiver in the league who's far from malcontent.

Plus, they just traded away Anquan Boldin. Why in the world would they trade Fitz?


And what should the Chiefs be willing to give up for him?

I guess the asking price for LF would be three number ones, which is never going to happen.

sedated
10-15-2010, 01:42 PM
I agree with Dane. If the Cardinals are dumb enough to trade Fitz for a 1st, or a 1st and a 3rd, or two 2nds, they are stupid and the Chiefs should jump all over it.

There's no reason to trade him. He's not a cancer. He's not destined to be a free agent next year. He SEEMS like the kind of guy that would want to play his whole career in one place (especially after he's already been to a super bowl with that team). And he's their only offensive weapon.

Right, like I said you start at 2 2nds for Marshall and must at least do that and probably more. So it would take a lot, maybe a 1st and 2nd if those picks aren't at the bottom of the round especially now that top picks will actually will have value again once a new CBA is reached.

Wow, I don't think that's ever been done for 1 guy has it? The Hershall Walker trade has so much extra stuff thrown in there it's tough to quantify what part of that he actually brought back IMO.

Cutler basically brought 2 1st and I think it would take a prime Manning, Brady, Rivers, type QB to bring back 3 1st.

But yeah, it would never happen.

There you go. Thanks. I agree that whatever they'd be willing to take, it would be so high that the Chiefs or pretty much anyone else would be foolish to give it up.

I guess the asking price for LF would be three number ones, which is never going to happen.Depends on the situation. Those attributes you described above could be applied to Tony G when we traded him.

They are re-building. They don't need the best WR in the game right now, but in 3 years.

But, I just don't see us getting him for our #1. The price is going to be higher. And if we draft like we did last year, those picks will make us better in the long term than having Fitz on the team will in the short term.

When did Tony ever offer to take less pay so that the Chiefs could put more money on the table for other players?

When did Fitzgerald not dedicate his offseason to improving as a player to persue other interests?

When did Fitzgerald ever hold out?

When did Fitzgerald ever say publicly that he wanted to be traded?

Bump for this update per rotoworld/via NFL.com...

Larry Fitzgerald has a clause in his contract that will not allow the Cardinals to use the franchise tag on him when his deal runs out in 2012.
Interesting. Reports of the Cardinals as willing to consider a Fitzgerald trade "for the right price" make a lot more sense if he's holding that much leverage. The two sides have touched base on a new deal, but Fitz isn't going to sign the dotted line until he sees a massive upgrade at QB. Pending a new CBA, the Cardinals should have a good feel for Fitz's 2012 intentions by late spring or early summer.

One thing you forget in this comparison. Tony G. is getting pretty old by NFL standards (will be 35 this Sunday, btw). Larry Fitzgerald is 27. Just sayin.

Cardinals “optimistic” about Fizgerald negotiations


Cardinals G.M. Rod Graves says he’s optimistic by nature. That’s why he’s so sunny about a potential contract extension for wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald when there isn’t a lot of reason to think they will get one done by March 4.

“Obviously the window is getting shorter in terms of being able to close something before the end of the [league] year,” Graves said Friday via the team’s official website. “We will see what happens over the next week or week-and-a-half. Again, the objective is to extend his deal.”

Graves confirmed that negotiations were ongoing, but it doesn’t sound like a deal is imminent.

Fitzgerald represents the top of the Cardinals roster.

You have to have good WR's, for sure. But you don't build the team around them. There are plenty of great WR's like Moss, TO, Cris Carter, Tim Brown, Steve Largent... didn't win squat. Everybody thought the Steelers were going to go downhill without Santonio Holmes, they ended up going to the Super Bowl without him. Jerry Rice is obviously an exception, but he's Jerry Rice. Of course Fitzgerald might end up being better than half the guys listed there, but even then that won't be enough.
