The Arizona Cardinals have a lot of work to do this offseason. They are currently coming off an 8-8 season, but that’s just the start of it. Head coach Bruce Arians has retired, as has starting quarterback Carson Palmer. But wideout Larry Fitzgerald, 34, isn’t letting those decisions impact him.
“Larry Fitzgerald just said on
@nflnetwork that the retirements of Bruce Arians and Carson Palmer has no impact on his decision on when he decides to retire himself.”
Fitz has just completed his 14th NFL season—all with the Cardinals—and is still breaking records. This is his ninth season in which he has eclipsed 1,000 yards receiving. Only Jerry Rice, Terrell Owens, Randy Moss, Tim Brown and Jimmy Smith have that many such seasons.
Plus if he does play at least one more season, Fitzgerald figures to pass Terrell Owens for second on the all-time receiving list. As for Jerry Rice? Well he’s roughly 7,000 yards ahead of T.O., so that’s going to be virtually impossible for Fitz to top.
But with all the uncertainty surrounding the Cardinals right now, it sure would be nice to have All-Pro receiver back in the fold. How much longer will the Cardinals have to wait?
