Larry Fitzgerald told Cardinals coach Steve Wilks he will return for the 2018 season.
"Larry mentioned to me last night that he's coming back for the 2018 season," Wilks said on the Doug and Wolf Show. "He's totally committed, those are his words." It is not a huge surprise, but Fitzgerald returning for his 15th season is still a massive boost for the first-year head coach. Even with the future Hall of Famer back in the fold, the Cardinals have a lot of work to do on offense this offseason, most importantly finding a quarterback and surrounding Fitzgerald with a better receiving corps.

Date:

Larry Fitzgerald's $11 million salary for 2018 becomes guaranteed on Friday.

Today is the fifth day of the new waiver period following Super Bowl LII. Fitzgerald will forfeit the $11 million if he retires, so Friday's guarantee should have no bearing on whether he decides to come back. The Cardinals could entice Fitzgerald to return by signing a top-flight quarterback like Kirk Cousins in free agency.
Feb 9 - 2:07 PM

Larry Fitzgerald indicated Sunday he needs one to two more weeks before announcing whether he'll play in 2018.

Fitzgerald all but admitted his decision will depend on which direction the Cardinals take at quarterback, saying he believes "things need to happen with personnel first," before Fitzgerald makes his intentions public. From the tone of his interview, it did sound like Fitzgerald would rather play than not.
Feb 4 - 2:43 PM

Larry Fitzgerald's father told Sirius XM NFL Radio that his son will only play for the Cardinals if Fitzgerald returns for another season.

"There’s no chance," Fitzgerald Sr. said on Sirius. "This will be it. If it’s not with the Cardinals, we’ve seen the last of Larry Fitzgerald in the National Football League wearing No. 11." Fitzgerald Sr. later said his son "really wants to get a championship ring," but that could be tough to do on a rebuilding Cardinals squad. If the Cards can find a way to win the Kirk Cousins bidding, their chances of getting back Fitzgerald would likely grow immensely.
Jan 31 - 10:07 PM

At Monday's introductory press conference, Cardinals OC Mike McCoy "sounded like a coach expecting" Larry Fitzgerald to play the 2018 season.

McCoy needs to stay cautiously optimistic; beyond David Johnson, Fitzgerald is the Cardinals' second-most valuable offensive player, even approaching age 35. Carson Palmer and Bruce Arians retired, the line has fallen to pieces, and John Brown is a free agent. Fitz has 100-plus catches in three straight years.
Jan 29 - 4:10 PM

Larry Fitzgerald still hasn't made a decision on playing in 2018.

Steve Wilks had an "in-depth conversation" with Fitzgerald after landing the team's head-coaching job on Monday, but said the star wideout still hasn't given him an answer on whether he plans on returning for what would be his 15th NFL season. Fitzgerald is nearing a number of career milestones and showed he still has plenty left by finishing second in the league with 109 catches in 2017. Fitzgerald previously said the retirements of Carson Palmer and Bruce Arians will have no bearing on his decision.
Jan 23 - 2:33 PM

Larry Fitzgerald said the retirements of Bruce Arians and Carson Palmer will have "no impact" on if he'll return next season.

This is good news for Fitzgerald's chances of returning, as some assumed his status was tied to Palmer. Despite entering his age-35 season, Fitzgerald finished behind only Jarvis Landry in catches last year and still has plently left. Fitzgerald needs just 389 yards to pass Terrell Owens (15,934) for second all-time.

Larry Fitzgerald remained noncommittal Friday when asked about his plans for next season.

"I don’t have any timetable," said Fitzgerald, who is in Orlando for the Diamond Resorts Invitational. "I’m going to play golf tomorrow. On Tuesday, I’ll play golf again. Wednesday, I’ll play golf. Thursday, I’ll play more golf and we’ll figure it out as we go." Fitzgerald showed he still has plenty left in the tank by finishing second in the league with 109 catches this past season. The 34-year-old should make his decision sometime after the Cardinals select a new head coach.
Jan 12 - 2:31 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 8-of-13 targets for 55 yards in the Cardinals' Week 17 win over the Seahawks.

The eight grabs got Fitzgerald to 109 on the season, matching his career-high. The 34-year-old wideout has now caught at least 107 balls each of the past three years. Fitz is not the mega-play threat he was earlier in his career, but got his yards per catch back above 10.0 this season (10.6). Although Fitz signed a one-year extension in November, his NFL future is genuinely up in the air. The murky futures of coach Bruce Arians and Carson Palmer only complicate the situation. One thing is clear: If Fitz wants to return for his age-35 campaign, he will be physically capable.

Larry Fitzgerald caught 9-of-15 targets for 119 yards and a touchdown in Arizona's Week 16 win over the Giants.

Fitzgerald was targeted heavily by Drew Stanton, who locked on to him for over half of his yards. His touchdown came on a red-zone pass in the final minutes of the first half. Fitzgerald got almost all of his production in early, making just one catch over the final two quarters. He's now had three straight seasons with over 100 catches and 1,000 yards. Fitzgerald gets a matchup with Seattle for what could be his final game in Week 17.
Sun, Dec 24, 2017 07:53:00 PM

Larry Fitzgerald remains undecided on if he will return for a 15th season in 2018.

Fitz signed a one-year extension last month, but that was just to lock him into Arizona if he decides to come back. "I don't know," Fitz said Thursday. "I'm going to take some time, figure it out. I'll let you know though." Physically, Fitz should be more than up to the challenge. Mentally, it's possible he's out of gas. Fitz announced he was returning for the 2017 season last February. The decision could take longer this time around.

Larry Fitzgerald snagged five-of-10 targets for 60 yards Sunday in the Cardinals’ Week 15 loss to the Redskins.

All but one of his catches came in the first half. Fitzgerald kept the Cardinals alive in the fourth quarter by drawing a crucial pass interference on Kendall Fuller. He had a chance to rescue Arizona one last time on fourth-and-10 with 28 seconds remaining but couldn’t haul it in against tight coverage from D.J. Swearinger. Fitzgerald, who has now recorded a catch in 209 consecutive games, needs just 18 yards for his third straight 1,000-yard season. He’ll try to reach that milestone next week against the Giants.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 05:03:00 PM

Larry Fitzgerald hauled in 5-of-7 targets for 44 yards in the Cardinals' Week 14 loss to the Titans.

The entire offense was stuck in neutral in the first half, but Fitzgerald helped get them in drive with a 23-yard catch in the third quarter which moved him into third place on the All-Time receiving yardage list. Unfortunately, Blaine Gabbert overthrew him for what would have been a wide-open touchdown in the fourth, and that catch ended up being the highlight of his game. Fitzgerald should find more success next week against Washington.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 07:07:00 PM

Larry Fitzgerald collected 10 catches for 98 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets Sunday in the Cardinals’ Week 13 loss to the Rams.

The Cardinals mostly struggled in Sunday’s loss but that didn’t stop Fitzgerald from having another big day. Fitz scored the second of Arizona's two touchdowns, using a brilliant double-move to break free for a 15-yard score in the second quarter. He also got busy during garbage time, pulling in four catches for 34 yards on the Cardinals’ final drive. Fitzgerald passed Isaac Bruce for fourth on the NFL’s all-time receiving yards list on Sunday while reaching double-digit catches for the fourth time this season. He should be in for another stellar game next week against a burnable Tennessee secondary.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 08:47:00 PM

Larry Fitzgerald caught 3-of-8 targets for 12 yards in the Cardinals' Week 12 win over the Jaguars.

The Jaguars stuck Jalen Ramsey on Fitzgerald for parts of the afternoon, and that obviously played a big role in holding Fitzgerald down. Blaine Gabbert was still able to get the job done, throwing a pair of touchdowns to Ricky Seals-Jones and Jaron Brown to get the Cardinals the narrow win. Fitzgerald should bounce back next week at home against the Rams, though it's not an easy test.
