Larry Fitzgerald Is Willing To Renegotiate His Contract To Keep Anquan Boldin Around
by Jimmy Shapiro
Larry Fitzgerald had the greatest post-season for a wide receiver in NFL history. In all four games he had over 100 yards receiving and totaled 546 yards and 7 touchdowns. While Kelly LeBrock was the perfect woman to build in the classic 80’s movie “Weird Science”, although time hasn’t been kind to her as she was recently on “Celebrity Fit Club…Larry Fitzgerald is the perfect wide receiver. He has the perfect combination of size, speed, strength, and hands. Plus he comes with very little drama.
As great as Fitzgerald is, he greatly benefits by having Anquan Boldin on his team. He sees less double teams and they push each other to keep improving. For the offense that the Cards want to run with Kurt Warner, I think it’s imperative that they keep Anquan Boldin and get the contract situation fixed.
Larry Fitzgerald joined Gambo and Ash on KTAR to discuss Anquan Boldin.
On the Boldin situation:
“I want to be with him as long as I possibly can because he’s allowed me grow, he’s helped me grow and you couldn’t ask for a better teammate and competitor. He sets the bar so high when he steps on the field on Sunday. I just hope that something positive can work out and we can keep him here as an Arizona Cardinal and in a few years we’ll be able to see his name up there in the Ring of Honor in Cardinal Stadium…I told Rod that I’m willing to renegotiate my contract, whatever it takes to keep him here. I know that I would never be able to have the success that I’ve been able to have without him pushing me every day and teaching me on the way getting to this point. I want him to be able to be happy and for him to be happy, if I have to do what I have to do, that’s fine with me because I know I wouldn’t be able to be here without his help.”
More on Boldin:
“I don’t think he wants to leave, I just think he wants to be compensated according to what he’s done on the football field and that’s understandable. I don’t care what work is; I don’t care if you’re a school teacher, I don’t care if you’re a journalist, I don’t care if you’re a broadcaster – if you’re the best at what you do, you want to be compensated accordingly. I can definitely sympathize for the way he’s feeling. I just hope that we can come to a good resolution and everyone can be happy and we can continue to move forward.”
