L. Fitzgerald Reportedly Could Be Eagles' Latest Target
The Philadelphia Eagles, on the heels of paying big money to add free agent cornerback Asante Samuel, tried but failed to lure Randy Moss from the New England Patriots. The free agent wideout re-signed with the Patriots after reportedly being offered more money by the Eagles.
Now the Eagles' latest target in their offseason of uncharacteristic player-adding aggressiveness could be Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.
The Arizona Republic reported that the Eagles have discussed a prospective trade for Fitzgerald with the Cardinals. The Eagles' trade offer, the newspaper reported, could include wideout Reggie Brown and cornerback Lito Sheppard.
Fitzgerald's status with the Cardinals is uncertain because escalator clauses in his contract have pushed his salaries to $14.6 million next season and $17.4 million in the 2009 season. The Cardinals have been attempting to rework Fitzgerald's contract, without a resolution thus far. Club officials have said they intend to keep Fitzgerald with the team next season even if a contract restructuring is not completed.
