Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald has not made his decision on whether he will return in 2018 or not
The Arizona Cardinals and their fans are waiting for a decision to come on receiver Larry Fitzgerald on what his plans are for 2018. Let’s not all be in such a rush.
A couple of weeks ago we detailed how he will take his time and may not decide until closer to Super Bowl time. If there is a certain coach the Cardinals are waiting on that is currently in the playoffs, it could take longer.
It only makes sense that not only would Fitz be evaluating how he feels physically but also about who will be the new coach. Does Fitz get any say in that?
He likely doesn’t but it is still a consideration he has to make before deciding if he wants to go another round or two in the NFL. Some media and fans seem to want to him to make a decision sooner rather than later.
Of course we all speculate about what he will or should do. There are a number of people who certainly hope he returns but others that feel he should go chase a championship for another team.
That isn’t going to happen. Fitz has already said he will play his career out with the Cardinals. He would only be traded if he asked to be.
His contract for 2018 has been detailed here and elsewhere already, so we know where he stands contractually. Clearly he hasn’t shut the door on calling it a career or else he would have already done that.
So, let’s allow him to play his golf. He will make his decision in due time. If the Cardinals are waiting on Minnesota Vikings Offensive Coordinator Pat Shurmur, well then we could be waiting at least a couple of more weeks at the very least.
