Larry Fitzgerald To Return In 2017


After a disappointing season from a team aspect, the Arizona Cardinals can breathe a little easier knowing their top receiver Larry Fitzgerald will be returning in 2017.

“Some things that were killing me late in the year are feeling back to normal for me. That’s a relief. Also, my fire and desire to win and compete vs. the best still burns,” Fitzgerald stated.

Quietly, Fitzgerald led the league in catches with 107 and he totaled 1,023 yards. Now, head coach Bruce Arians will await the decision of veteran quarterback Carson Palmer. Although Palmer struggled this past season, you can’t undermine the chemistry he’s developed with Fitzgerald over the years.

There isn’t a hard deadline for Palmer to make his decision, but Cardinals brass would like to know within the next couple weeks in a perfect world.
