Steve Keim is staying in Arizona.
The Cardinals on Monday announced they have signed the general manager to a contract extension that will keep him with the organization through 2022.
Keim was entering the final year of his most recent contract, signed in 2015, though the Cardinals held a team option for 2019.
“Steve’s performance and accomplishments as Cardinals GM speak for themselves,” team president Michael Bidwill said in a statement, via the team’s website. “His role in the team’s success over the last five seasons is undeniable. This new contract ensures that he will continue to shape our success going forward and we are thrilled about that.”
Keim, 45, will enter his 20th season with the Cardinals in 2018. He was promoted to general manager in Jan. 2013 after spending the previous 14 years in the team’s front office.
Arizona has gone 40-30-1 during his time as general manager. He is facing key moves this offseason, including replacing retired quarterback Carson Palmer and potentially wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who has not made a decision on whether to continue playing.
