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.
Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks told the Doug & Wolf Show on 98.7 FM that Fitzgerald informed him he will return to the team next season.
Fitzgerald needs 92 catches and 390 yards to move to number two all-time on the NFL's receiving leaders list.
Fitzgerald tied his own franchise record with 109 catches this season, in the process becoming the oldest player in National Football League history to reach the 100-catch plateau in a season.
The uncertainty of the team, which will have a new head coach, offensive and defensive coordinators, and starting quarterback, has also played a factor in Fitzgerald taking time to contemplate his future.
Larry Fitzgerald is coming back. That's a challenge for a receiver who will be 35 before the season kicks off.
"I'm extremely excited", Wilks said.
Fitzgerald averaged 12.9 FanDuel points per game this season, with 109 receptions for 1,156 yards and 6 touchdowns on 161 targets.
He is now third all-time in receiving yards (15,545) and receptions (1,234), and eighth in receiving touchdowns (110). He has recorded 1,234 catches for 15,545 yards with 110 touchdowns in 218 career games since the Cardinals selected him with the third overall pick of the 2004 NFL Draft.
While he signed an extension through 2018 in November, he couldn't commit to playing out the deal.
