Cardinals’ Larry Fitzgerald named to NFL 100 All-Time Team
Larry Fitzgerald has been named to the NFL’s 100 All-Time Team.

Although Fitzgerald has never won a Super Bowl, his moments in the postseason are legendary. The 36-year-old wide receiver holds the single postseason record for receptions (30), receiving yards (546) and receiving touchdowns (7) in a single postseason back in 2008 — his lone appearance in the Super Bowl when the Arizona Cardinals fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Outside of his postseason theatrics, Fitzgerald is an 11-time Pro Bowl selection and ranks second all time in both receptions (1,370) and receiving yards (16,990).
Perhaps most impressive, Fitzgerald has played his entire career with the Cardinals since being drafted in 2004 and remains with the franchise in 2019. In his 15 full seasons with the franchise, he’s led the Cardinals to four postseason appearances. For perspective, Arizona had made it to the playoffs just four times in the 30 seasons prior to Fitzgerald joining the team.
As part of the NFL’s 100 All-Time Team, Randy Moss, Jerry Rice, Don Hutson, Raymond Berry, Elroy Hirsch, Paul Warfield and Lance Alworth were the other receivers named to the team thus far.
