Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald won’t commit to playing another season despite signing extension
Back in November, All-Pro wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald signed a one-year, $11 million extension with the Arizona Cardinals to return for the 2018 season.
However, it appears that Fitzgerald isn’t sure at this time if he’ll return next season despite being under contract, according to Darren Urban of azcardinals.com.
“I don’t know,” Fitzgerald said. “I’m going to take some time, figure it out. I’ll let you know, though.”
Prior to inking the extension, Fitzgerald voiced uncertainty about his NFL career during the 2016 season. He was in the final year of his deal with the Cardinals before deciding to sign a new contract.
In his 14th season, the 34-year-old continues to produce at an elite level with 92 catches, 982 yards, and five touchdowns through 14 games. He has an opportunity to record at least 100 catches and 1,000 receiving yards for the third straight year. It will also mark Larry’s ninth 1,000 receiving yard campaign and fifth season with 100 or more receptions.
Regardless of what decision Fitzgerald ultimately comes to regarding next season, he has put together a Hall of Fame career that includes 11 Pro Bowl selections, a First-Team All-Pro honor, and two Second-Team All-Pro ones. He also ranks third all-time in receptions and receiving yards, and eighth in receiving touchdowns in NFL history.
