Fitzgerald, who turns 38 in August, has been an iron man over his 17-year career with the Arizona Cardinals. The 2004 first-round pick has played in 263 of a possible 272 games over that span.
Currently, Fitzgerald is still weighing his options, whether he wants to hang it up, go back to Arizona for another year or sign with another team in an attempt to chase a championship ring. Clearly, there’s a belief around the league he will retire.
“While Fitzgerald remains unsigned and has not announced his intentions for 2021, execs anticipate he’ll retire rather than rejoin a receiving corps now headlined by DeAndre Hopkins,” Sando wrote.
Much of the reaction to the latest Fitzgerald report has been disappointment about seeing the future Hall of Famer possibly step away after a brilliant career.
