Larry Fitzgerald returning for Year 17

Larry Fitzgerald runs off the field

Larry Fitzgerald will return to the Arizona Cardinals for a 17th National Football League season after signing a one-year deal on Wednesday.

"Arizona is where I started and where I will finish".

There had been speculation he could retire, but he instead signed a one-year contract.

Despite his advancing years, in 2019 he still led the Cardinals in receptions (75), yards (804) and touchdown catches (four) under Arizona's rookie duo of head coach Kliff Kingsbury and quarterback Kyler Murray.

Kingsbury said he'd make his pitch for Fitzgerald to return.

He missed significant time in 2018 due to injuries ; it was the only season since 2012 in which he played fewer than 100 games. Hinch, the Philadelphia Phillies are coming out on top when their division rivals come up short in the free agent sweepstakes.

This is Fitzgerald's 16th season with the team. Teammates wanted him back, too, though nobody seemed totally certain what his final decision would be.

The 11-time Pro Bowl selection, 2008 All-Pro and 2016 Walter Payton Man of the Year award victor has played his entire career in Arizona since he was selected No. 3 overall out of Pittsburgh in the 2004 NFL Draft.

While the Cards hope someday soon one of their young guns overtakes Fitzgerald as a true No. 1 target, Kingsbury understands the vital role the veteran plays for his offense to move the chains consistently.

He now ranks second all-time in career receptions, trailing Jerry Rice by 171 catches, and second all-time in receiving yards, trailing Rice by 5,812 yards. Over his previous 16 seasons in the NFL, Fitzgerald has been named a Pro Bowler 11 times (2005, 2007-2013, 2015-2017) and an All-Pro three times (2008-09, 2011).
