Larry Fitzgerald will return to the Cardinals in 2018 rather than retire

Larry Fitzgerald will return to the Cardinals in 2018 rather than retire

It's unclear who'll be throwing to him, but Larry Fitzgerald will return for a 15th season with the Cardinals, the future Hall of Fame wideout told new coach Steve Wilks on Wednesday evening. Fitzgerald turns 35 in August and next season will be his 15th in the NFL.

Larry Fitzgerald won't follow Carson Palmer and Bruce Arians riding into the sunset in 2018. Despite the fact he will turn 35 on August 31, Fitzgerald has enjoyed three of his best seasons the past three years.

"I'm extremely excited", Wilks said, via the team website.

Jerry Rice, in first place in both categories, is likely unreachable in both catches (1,549) and yards (22,895). He has earned Pro Bowl bids while topping 100 catches and 1,000 yards in each of the last three seasons, finishing 2017 with 109 receptions and 1,156 yards for six scores.

A tweet posted to Davis' Twitter account said the process by which Hamlin won the honor was executed "dishonorably". He is a basketball coach and a P.E. teacher though, so his winters are very busy as well.

A battered offensive line and an injured Palmer didn't stop Fitzgerald from producing Pro Bowl numbers in 2017.

The 34-year-old Fitzgerald is the Cardinals' franchise leader in almost every statistical receiving category, including receptions, yards and touchdowns. He had over triple the amount of the team's second-leading pass catchers Andre Ellington and Jermaine Gresham, who both caught 33 balls. Adding in quality receivers J.J. Nelson and Jaron Brown, the position is relatively set going forward.

Fitzgerald's 10 postseason touchdown catches are tied for the fourth-most in the history of the National Football League, despite the fact that he's played in only nine playoff games.
