It looks like Larry Fitzgerald might be sticking around for a while longer.

Larry Fitzgerald has signed a one-year extension with the Cardinals, keeping the veteran wide receiver in Arizona through the 2018 season.


Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, 11, and running back Adrian Peterson, foreground, take part in an National Football League training session at the London Irish rugby team training ground in the Sunbury-onThames suburb of south west London, Friday, Oct. 20, 2017.

Should he decide to return for 2018-which is not a definite, as he is reportedly still considering retirement-Fitzgerald will have a legitimate chance to move up significantly in the record books.


Through nine games, Fitzgerald leads the Cardinals in receptions (60), receiving yards (677) and receiving touchdowns (three). Though he's sixth in receiving yards now, he's less than 1,000 yards away from passing Terrell Owens for second all-time. Fitzgerald also has a good shot to end up at the No. 6 spot on the all-time list for touchdown catches. Back in April 2016, Fitzgerald had said that he might retire if Palmer didn't return to Arizona.

Last offseason, it wasn't reported until February 1 that Fitzgerald was returning for the 2017 season.


"That's the only reason I'm playing at this point", Fitzgerald said of aiming for a Super Bowl, according to ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss.
