Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald to decide his future in a ‘week or two’
When it comes to the future of Arizona Cardinals star wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, nothing is set in stone. On Super Bowl Sunday, Fitzgerald made an appearance on NFL Gameday Morning with Rich Eisen and said that he still needs time to think about his future in the league.
“I haven’t made any definitive decisions,” Fitzgerald said. “I’ll be ready in about a week or two.”
General manager Steve Keim more than likely will not find the team’s starting quarterback in a week or two, but Fitzgerald will probably be speaking with Keim about the franchise’s plan going forward within that span of time.
Back in December, Keim opened up about the team’s disappointing 2017-18 season and vowed to make major changes in Arizona.
“There is a lot of work to be done this offseason and I rarely think about the things that work,” Keim said. “The things that race through my mind are the things that didn’t work or the things I need to improve on personally. I take it personally. It’s one of those things that keeps me up at night and one of the things that fuels me to keep improving this roster.”
A big part of his decision will have to do with the direction the Cardinals take with their personnel, but Fitgerald said that he likes what he sees.
“I’m excited about what the future holds,” Fitzgerald said. “Obviously there are things that still need to happen in terms of personnel, draft and things like that that help our team improve. But I’m confident that Steve Keim is doing a good job with that.”
In 16 games during the 2017 NFL season, Fitzgerald had 109 catches for 1,156 yards and six touchdowns. It was his third straight season in which he had at least 100 receptions.
