Drew Brees isn’t the only future Hall of Fame player whose future remains a mystery. Larry Fitzgerald also has a decision to make on whether he’ll return to the Arizona Cardinals for an 18th season.
Taking part in Wednesday’s pro-am at this week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open, Fitzgerald said he has “no timeline” on when he’ll decide to play or retire.
“Just taking it day by day,” Fitzgerald said.
The 37-year-old receiver added that he felt “pretty banged up” at the end of the season but feels fresher now that he’s a month removed from the season.
Don’t expect a decision from Fitzgerald this week to distract from the Super Bowl, especially with Bruce Arians, Byron Leftwich and several other former Cards coaches in the big game.
“I’m just focused on the next hole and just figuring out how to get this golf game right. That’s all I’m worried about right now,” he said, via Cameron Cox of KPNX Arizona. “Everything will take care of itself.”
Fitzgerald caught a career-low 54 passes for 409 yards and one TD in 2020, playing in 13 games. He previously hadn’t missed a game since 2014.
