Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald will ‘take a little time’ to figure out future
Arizona Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald is going to take a little time to figure out if he wants to return for his 17th season in the league. The last couple of years, Fitzgerald has taken his time after the season to decide if he wanted to come back and each of the last few seasons he has decided to return.
After Sunday’s loss against the Los Angeles Rams, Fitzgerald said he would go through the same process, but made clear he loves everything about the organization.
“I’ve got to go through the checklist and process,” Fitzgerald said via Josh Alpert of Pro Football Talk. “But I love this organization with all my heart. I’ve given all I’ve had for 16 years. I just have to take a little time to figure it out.”
Fitzgerald hasn’t given many hints one way or another on if he will return, but if he does decide to come back a big reason could come down to the fun he is having. Fitzgerald has said on a few different occasions this season that he is having some of the most fun he has had in his career.
Cardinals rookie quarterback Kyler Murray and coach Kliff Kingsbury have inserted a new bit of life into the franchise and that could be enough to get him back for one more season. Early in the season Murray and Fitzgerald got into a groove and if he does decide to hang it up that would be a big loss to the young quarterback.
