Larry Fitzgerald hints that he is leaning toward playing in 2018

Larry Fitzgerald

There has been speculation that Larry Fitzgerald will be inclined to retire now that Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians and quarterback Carson Palmer have called it a career, but the star wide receiver may have one more season left in him.

In an appearance on NFL Network Sunday, Fitzgerald seemed to hint that he is planning to play in 2018. He said he’ll make a final decision within the next two weeks, but Cardinals fans have to feel good about his comments.

Fitzgerald will turn 35 before the start of next season, but he had yet another Pro Bowl season in 2017 despite playing with multiple quarterbacks. He caught 109 passes for 1,156 yards and six touchdowns, making it obvious that he can still compete at a high level.

Last month, Fitzgerald indicated that whomever the Cardinals named as their next head coach would factor into his decision. Since he seems pleased with the direction of the organization, it would stand to reason that he agrees with the team’s hiring of Steve Wilks.
