It's not happening.
A league source said Saturday night that the Eagles have talked to the Cardinals about Fitzgerald, but the discussions have never gone beyond an inquiry as to whether Arizona planned to trade its star wide receiver. The answer has always been the same - absolutely not.
The league source said that even if the Cardinals had a desire to deal Fitzgerald, ridding themselves of the frustrating negotiations and his huge salary-cap number, the urgency is gone now. The source noted that the best free agents are off the market and that freeing up salary-cap space won't help the Cardinals a bit for the 2008 season.If the Cards were going to deal this guy, it would have already happened. What good does cap space do them now? They've signed a few free agents, they've kept some of their own guys, and some of their guy have left. They still have money to pay rookies... There's just no need to trade Fitzgerald now. Now if they don't get an extension done this year, next year is when they'll need to trade him or face the prospect of having him walk for nothing.
reports of that ridiculous trade proposal of Lito Sheppard and Reggie Brown never happened.
