“No participant has meant extra to this franchise or this group than Larry Fitzgerald,” staff president Michael Bidwill stated in an announcement . “In my discussions with him, it was clear that he’s as pushed and passionate as ever. We’re thrilled he’ll be again in 2019.”
Fitzgerald was drafted third general in 2004 by the Cardinals and definitely has delivered on any expectation the franchise has had for him during the last 15 seasons.
He completed 2018 with 1,303 profession receptions, breaking Jerry Rice’s report of most receptions (1,281) with one staff. However the Cardinals completed 3-13 underneath first-year head coach Steve Wilks, who was fired and changed by Kliff Kingsbury.
