Larry Fitzgerald is officially back with the Arizona Cardinals to play in 2020.
The star wide receiver signed a 1 year contract with the Arizona Cardinals to play for his 17th season. This was announced by the NFL team on Wednesday morning, January 15, 2020.
Fitzgerald, is currently positioned at 2nd on the NFL’s all-time receiving yards list with 17,083. He is also 2nd on the receptions list with 1,378, right behind Hall of Fame receiver Jerry Rice.
Fitzgerald has been back and forth with retirement for the last few years now. He is now at the age of 36 and the team has been rebuilding since the retirement of Carson Palmer for the last few seasons. Fitzgerald was more open this past season about his future plans, evaluating if he is physically and mentally still available to play for the next season. This came to a conclusion to come back for the 2020 season on January 15th.
Coach Kliff Kingsbury had this to say on Wednesday, “I think he’s playing as good as anybody, honestly. You watch what he does week in and week out, the little things, the blocking and the toughness that he brings to the offensive side of the football.”
“He’s just still creating separation. He does it all.”
