Larry Fitzgerald has decided to return and play one more year with his old team, the Arizona Cardinals.
The news was revealed by Steve Wilks himself, who will become the fourth coach for the 34-year-old.
The wide receiver will have a chance to pass Terrell Owens in the all-time receiving yards list as he just needs around 390 yards to do that. For his career, he already received 15,545 yards and recorded 1,234 interceptions.
He also has a chance to surpass Tony Gonzalez’s record on the all-time receptions list as Fitzgerald just needs 92 catches to accomplish the feat.
In 2017, the 11-time Pro Bowl became the oldest NFL player to record 109 catches and 1,156 yards. Even more impressive, he reached the 100 catches and 1,000 yards milestone for three straight seasons.
Fitzgerald is “excited” about working with Wilks.
“Obviously there’s some things that need to happen in terms of personnel, draft and things like that to help our team improve,” he said. “But I’m confident that [general manager] Steve Keim and his group are going to do a good job with that.”
While the Cardinals are certainly thrilled about their leader coming back, the team still badly needs a quarterback.
