With the season ending, Larry Fitzgerald finished his first order of business for the offseason and restructured his contract with the Arizona Cardinals. He announced the restructure through his twitter account:

Fitzgerald is one of the best receivers in the game, but his contract was restricting. He had an $18 million salary cap number for 2014. That is crippling for a salary cap.
The details of the contract have not been announced yet, but it should help free up some room for the Cardinals to do some work in free agency.
Now the Cardinals can work on bringing more talent onto the roster and helping the team make the playoffs. They have the tough task of dealing with the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers in their division. Getting some extra room under the cap will help the team get closer to the rest of the pack.
