Arizona Pro Bowl wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald's deal ...

ESPN - [Full Article]

Arizona Pro Bowl wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald's deal includes a clause that prevents the Cardinals from slapping their franchise tag on him after this season, according to two sources who have reviewed the contract.

This means that if Fitzgerald is not signed to an extension before his contract expires at the end of this season, he would have the ability to leave Arizona in the off-season, without any restrictions.

The "no-franchise-tag" clause was included in the four-year, $40 million contract extension that Fitzgerald signed in March 2008.
