Larry Fitzgerald promises low-key retirement announcement
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald may or may not be preparing for his final NFL season, but one thing he’s sure of is that his retirement will be a fairly low-key affair.
Fitzgerald said Sunday that when he does retire, there will be no elaborate, weepy press conference announcing the news.
“That’s not how I am,” Fitzgerald said, via Josh Weinfuss of ESPN. “I’m just one player out of 1,600 in the National Football League, and it’s a lot bigger than me. It’s never going to be like that.”
As for whether Fitzgerald has his sights set on retirement at the end of the season, the wide receiver is not looking that far ahead.
“I feel good right now,” Fitzgerald said. “When that changes, I’ll let you know.”
The 33-year-old flirted with retirement during the offseason, but he has made clear that we’ll hear a decision only when it’s time. It does make sense that this could be the end for him, though.
