Larry Fitzgerald and Arizona Cardinals agree one-year extension


However, Fitzgerald has remained adamant that Super Bowl aspirations-not statistical achievements-are why he's sticking around.

ProFootballTalk.com reported Thursday that the Cardinals wide receiver and future Hall of Famer are close to a one-year contract extension that would keep Fitz in the Valley through the 2018 season. Overall, Fitzgerald has caught 1,185 passes for 15,066 yards and 107 touchdowns during his career, which are numbers that will nearly definitely put him in the Hall of Fame. He already has 60 catches for 677 yards and three scores this season, and he's done some of that without his starting quarterback, the injured Carson Palmer.

The 34-year-old Fitzgerald has showed no signs of slowing down in his 14th season. Since then, the former Pittsburgh Panther has amassed dizzying career totals of 1,185 catches, 15,066 receiving yards, and 107 touchdowns, which are all top eight in league history. Fitzgerald also has a good shot to end up at the No. 6 spot on the all-time list for touchdown catches.

Fitzgerald and the Cardinals have agreed to a one-year contract extension, according to Pro Football Talk.

Last offseason, it wasn't reported until February 1 that Fitzgerald was returning for the 2017 season.

Speaking of Palmer, don't dismiss the significant bond between him and Fitzgerald, who said in 2016: "A lot of it's tied to Carson - Carson's playing at a high level".
