Larry Fitzgerald

This was a man who a lot of fans seemingly gave up on last season when his numbers were down.  Some fans begged for the Cardinals to have him traded with his expiring contract coming up and still possessing some trade value.  Many thought that faction of fans were crazy.

Turns out the Cardinals made the right move in not only giving him the new contract he deserved, they’ve made the right move going back to him more often in games.  He has has a rejuvenation of sorts this season.  He has 73 receptions for 926 yards and seven touchdowns so far and there are still six games left in the 2015 season.

Fitz has been in Arizona since he was drafted in 2004 and it appears he will end his career here in a couple of years.  For now, we have to be very thankful he is still a member of this organization.  He has been amazing off the field, always giving back to the community and has continued to lead the charge on the field as the consummate team player.
