Only time will tell whether Fitzgerald has played his last down or if the Cardinals will have their face of the franchise back for at least one more season. On Tuesday, I'll play golf again. Along with the need for a new head coach and a plan for the quarterback position, veteran wideout Larry Fitzgerald remains uncertain about his future in the National Football League and will wait until after the team has hired a new head coach what he plans to do, via ESPN's Josh Weinfuss.
"I don't have a head coach right now, so there's a lot going on", Fitzgerald said. "Thursday, I'll play more golf and we'll figure it out as we go". Our owner and president Michael Bidwill and general manager Steve Keim are out right now interviewing head coaches, so I'm interested to see what's gonna happen. The Steelers would certainly not love to see him walk out the door but, on Munchak's end, opportunities like this do not come around every day so, if true that he is linked to the opening, it would make sense for him to entertain it on the highest possible level in the coming days.
Fitzgerald needs just 91 receptions to pass Tony Gonzalez for second on the all-time list, trailing only Jerry Rice. In Shurmur's first full season running the offense, the unit finished 11th in yards per game (356.9) and 10th in points (23.9) while Keenum posted a 98.3 passer rating, easily the best of his career.
Fitzgerald was also the glue that helped keep the Cardinals from completely falling apart past year.
It sure would be awesome for Fitzgerald to eventually retire as a Super Bowl champion. Though Fitzgerald's Cardinals are going to have to pick up the pace quite a bit from their middling 8-8 finish in the NFC West.
