Cheap. Thrifty. Won't spend. Will never win.
We've heard all of that as it relates to the Arizona Cardinals. But that was the old Cardinals.
The new Cardinals will spend money. Of course, now they have to spend more.
They will spend a bunch of it to keep receiver Larry Fitzgerald. The two sides have reportedly agreed to a new contract that could pay the receiver $120 million over eight years, including $50 million in guaranteed money.
Did that really happen for an organization that used to let scouts go because they cost too much to keep around?
By trading for quarterback Kevin Kolb and giving him a long-term deal, the Cardinals now have their pitcher and catcher locked up for five years.
The cheap Cardinals exist no more. Son Michael Bidwill, who now runs the team, is far more aggreesive than his father Bill, who owns the team.
Larry Fitzgerald thanks him.
