The Arizona Cardinals and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald have come to terms on a contract extension. 
Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Fitzgerald's extension with the Cardinals adds one more year to his deal, which now runs through 2017. The Cardinals announced the deal on their official website. 
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the deal is worth $11 million.
On Saturday, ESPN's Ed Werder noted the team initiated extension talks, to give general manager John Keim roster stability. 
Fitzgerald enjoyed a career renaissance in 2015, setting a career high with 109 receptions for 1,215 yards and nine touchdowns. It was his first 1,000-yard season since 2011.  
The 32-year-old originally signed a two-year contract before the 2015 season that included $22 million in guaranteed money. The team essentially restructured his deal to help lower a cap hit that was set to be $23.6 million last season, per ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss.
