Larry Fitzgerald said Sunday that the ball was out of his court when it came to being traded away from the Cardinals before Tuesday’s trade deadline or during the offseason in 2014.

Fitzgerald was answering questions about the topic because of a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN that indicated Fitzgerald could be in play for a trade because of the coming salary and salary cab obligations in his contract. One of the guys who has more say about whether or not Fitzgerald remains with the Cardinals was also asked about the reports on Monday.

During an interview with Arizona Sports 620, General Manager Steve Keim said that he has not “had one conversation regarding a trade” of Fitzgerald. Keim also said that it was the intent of Cardinals management to have Fitzgerald retire as a member of the team.
