TEMPE, Arizona. – The speculations are over: Larry Fitzgerald will return with the cardinals in Arizona in 2019.
Men who have shed passages in the future hall of the Cardinals family offer an insight into his field exploits and character.
Larry Fitzgerald is committed to returning to the cardinals for another season. We asked former players how difficult it is to finally get retired.
The financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed. Fitzgerald, who bears the number 11, has won 11 million dollars in each of the last three seasons.
"No player has meant more to this franchise or this community than Larry Fitzgerald," said Team President Michael Bidwell. "In my discussions, it was clear to him that he was as moving and passionate as ever, and we are excited to be back in 2019."
Fitzgerald told ESPN Adam Sheffer via a text message earlier this month that it took some time to gather his mind after a grueling season in which Arizona (3-13) finished with the worst record in the NFL and landed first in the April project.
Fitzgerald took some time recently out of season to decide whether to return to the next year. In 2018, Fitzgerald announced he was returning on February 15 and 2017, he said on Feb. 2.
"I never lose sight of how happy I am to play a game I love, doing something I love," Fitzgerald said last season. "Most people get up and work at jobs they do not like for hours they do not like . "This is a great job that I am happy and blessed to have, so I never lose sight of that." 19659002] For the second year in a row Fitzgerald will play for a new coach and a new offensive system
The Cardinals hired Cliff Kingsbury to replace Steve Wilkes as chief coach on January 8. Kingsbury said he would like Fitzgerald to take part in the team next season but will allow the front office to decide whether a broader successor will be back
Fitzgerald, which has 69 catches for 734 yards and six touchdowns this season, will be 36 years old for the season 2019. He is in second place in his career in kite making, following Jerry Rice with more than 6,000 yards, but can pass Tony Gonzalez for second in the career list Fitzgerald needs 23 catches to pass Gonzalez
Last season he broke a series for three consecutive years with 100 catches and 1000 yards for Fitzgerald, and in 2017 he became the oldest player in the NFL's history with 100 catches per season.
