Former Seattle Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson is the latest to predict what Arizona Cardinals legend Larry Fitzgerald might do in 2021.
In less than three weeks, the Arizona Cardinals will be stepping onto the practice field for their first training camp session of the year. At this point, there’s a very real possibility of this summer’s camp being the first without Larry Fitzgerald on the Cardinals roster since 2003.
Fitzgerald is still a free agent, and even if he wants to continue playing in the NFL this year, Arizona might not be the team that allows him to extend his time in the league.
With how long it’s already taken for him to announce his decision though, it’s hard to imagine the All-Pro receiver playing in 2021 if it’s not going to be in a Cardinals uniform.
Former Seattle Seahawks fullback gives his prediction for the legendary Arizona Cardinals receiver
After spending his entire NFL career in the NFC West as a fullback with the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks, Michael Robinson has successfully transitioned into an analyst role for NFL Network.
"“I think Fitzy is going to call it a career. If he’s not decided on his future right now, I don’t think he’s going to play [in] this upcoming season. I think Larry Fitzgerald hangs it up.”"
With the Cardinals last year, Fitzgerald caught 54 balls for 409 yards and one touchdown. All of these marks were easily single-season career-lows for the future Hall of Famer, which might be a sign that stepping away from the game is his best option in 2021.
But maybe Fitzgerald doesn’t want to go out with last year’s numbers. Maybe he wants to end his time in the NFL by finishing a season with at least 1,000 receiving yards for the 10th time in his career.
Whatever decision Fitzgerald ends up making, you can expect his choice to be one of the hottest topics in town when the Cardinals begin their training camp at the end of the month.
