Fitzgerald was expected to take some time to announce his plans for 2019, but he made a decision much sooner than last year.
The Cardinals have a new head coach in Kliff Kingsbury, so it will be interesting to see how Fitzgerald does in another new offensive system.
Fitzgerald, 35, 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.
Fitzgerald has agreed to a few one-year extensions in recent years and he’s once again in position to be an unrestricted free agent in 2019.
In 2018, Fitzgerald appeared in 16 games and caught 69 receptions for 734 yards receiving and six touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 37 receiver out of 122 qualifying players.
