Cardinals president on Larry Fitzgerald talks: 'It takes two'

The Arizona Cardinals are in the midst of trying to restructure wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald's contract,

However, no deal has been struck yet.

And Cardinals team president Michael Bidwill said: "It takes two to come to an agreement," indicating that the team needs Fitzgerald to bend more to reduce his $16 million salary for 2015.

"I think, immediately, we've got to address Larry Fitzgerald's contract," Bidwill said during a radio interview. "We've talked about that. We've been working hard on trying to make sure that he's got a contract that compensates him appropriately. ... But it takes two to come to an agreement. So I think that's the first order of business."

The Cardinals want to be active in free agency by creating cap space.

"Free agency is going to be big for us," Bidwill said. "We've got to get the contract restructured with Fitz, because look at what we did last year in free agency -- with one significant signing, took care of that left tackle with Jared Veldheer, who did a tremendous job. That's the kind of impact we want to have this year in free agency."
