The Arizona Cardinals and Larry Fitzgerald have agreed to an eight-year contract that could keep the star receiver with the team through the 2018 season.

Fitzgerald's deal is for $120 million with close to $50 million guaranteed, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The six additional years after 2012 would be worth $17 million each.

The $15-million average would tie him with the Raiders' Richard Seymour for the fifth-highest average among all players. The top four players are all quarterbacks.

Fitzerald had three straight seasons of at least 10 touchdown receptions before scoring six times last season on 90 catches for 1,137 yards.

The five-time Pro Bowler has scored at least six touchdowns in all of his seven NFL seasons.

Consider Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe a happy man this morning. That's because there's a new high-water mark on long-term contracts for receivers.

ESPN reports that WR Larry Fitzgerald and the Arizona Cardinals agreed to terms on an eight-year, $120 million deal that includes nearly $50 million guaranteed.

50. Million. Guaranteed.

Wow. That $15 million per year average likely won't be replicated by anyone else anytime soon but it does raise the water for everyone else out there. Maybe Bowe was an $7 million a year type of player, and now with Fitz's new deal he may gain some leverage to increase that.

The Chiefs haven't had serious discussions about a long-term deal for Bowe but they probably will at some point this season if he continues playing well. Larry Fitz's deal won't have a major impact on Bowe's deal, whether that's from the Chiefs or elsewhere, but it certainly doesn't hurt him.

Bowe isn't going to get close to that with any team.

No, but if he has a good season it will make him considerably more money. This deal ups the premium for all WRs, not to that of this contract but it still will raise those salarys

It's crazy he's getting $15 million/year when noone has even come close to his $10 million/year he signed three years ago. Andre Johnson is signed for something like another 5 years at $6 million/year.
