Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald told reporters on Thursday that he has still yet to make any decision regarding his future.
“I’m going to take some time,” Fitzgerald said, via AzCardinals.com. “Figure it out. I’ll let you know, though.”
Fitzgerald did, however, reflect a bit on his 14-year NFL career.
“It’s been a good ride,” Fitzgerald said. “I’ve met a lot of great people and made a lot of wonderful memories. I wish we would’ve had some more wins. That first game at Sun Devil wasn’t fun. I think it was against the Patriots. I remember (linebacker) Willie McGinest knocking me down on a crossing route and (safety) Rodney Harrison chasing me around, trying to hurt me. That wasn’t a good day.”
Fitzgerald possibly retiring has been a topic the past few years and while he did sign a one-year, $11 million extension with the Cardinals a few months ago (NFLTR), it’s still something worth monitoring in the coming months.
Fitzgerald, 34, is a former first-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2004. He agreed to renegotiate his seven-year $113 million contract and signed a two-year, $22 million deal with Arizona that was fully guaranteed included a no-trade clause back in 2015.
Arizona later gave him another one-year, $11 million extension before last season that kept him under contract through 2017. Fitzgerald is in line to be an unrestricted free agent next year.
In 2017, Fitzgerald has appeared in 14 games and caught 92 receptions for 982 yards receiving and five touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 12 receiver out of 115 qualifying players.
