Fitzgerald will be back with Cardinals for 2018

From ESPN - February 15, 2018

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has decided to continue his Hall of Fame-worthy career and play his 15th season in 2018.

New Cardinals coach Steve Wilks announced Fitzgerald's intentions during an interview on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM on Thursday morning.

Fitzgerald's future has been the topic of speculation since last offseason, when he did not outright address whether 2017 would be his final year in the league. The questions concerning Fitzgerald's future ramped up in the days following the Cardinals' 8-8 season, when former coach Bruce Arians retired on Jan. 1 and quarterback Carson Palmer also retired a day later.

Fitzgerald, who will turn 35 on Aug. 31, will enter the season with a chance to reach second on the NFL's all-time receiving yards and receptions lists.

He finished 2017 third on both career lists with 15,545 yards and 1,234 receptions. He needs 390 yards to pass Terrell Owens on the receiving yards list and 92 catches to pass Tony Gonzalez on the receptions list.
