Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald faces a decision before free agency begins in March to accept the offer from the team management to accept a pay cut from his base salary of $15 million dollars or refuse to accept a pay cut and force the Cardinals to release him from his contract that will expire at the end of the 2019 football season.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald faces a decision about his salary

Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians who has been the head coach of the football team since 2013 is hopeful that his wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, 31, will accept a pay cut from his base salary of $15 million to remain with the team in 2015.
If Fitzgerald refuses to accept a pay cut before the start of free agency in March, the Cardinals will have to either trade their star wide receiver to another football team or release him due to the National Football League salary cap the Cardinals have to deal with.
Arians believes that Fitzgerald will be a team player and accept a pay cut before the start of free agency but he also knows that Fitzgerald can also refuse to accept a pay cut and be free to pay football for another team in 2015 that he feels they would have a chance to win a Super Bowl before he retires from the game.
Fitzgerald has played 11 seasons in the National Football League which have been with the Arizona Cardinals. Arians hopes that Fitzgerald will be one of the few players in the National Football League that plays his entire career with one team which is rare since due to free agency players do leave their football teams when their contracts expire since the football team cannot afford to pay the salary of the free agent player.
The Cardinals management team is negotiating with Fitzgerald to see if they can find some a salary that would keep Fitzgerald on the team until his current contract that he signed in 2011 expires at the end of the 2019 football season.
In case Fitzgerald is not the Cardinals roster in 2015, the Cardinals have rookie wide receiver John Brown and third year wide receiver Michael Floyd to replace Fitzgerald as the top wide receivers on the team in 2015.
