Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald Says He’ll Decide His Future in Next Few Weeks

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald told NFL Network on Sunday that he will be “ready in a week or two” to decide whether he will play in the 2018 season, ESPN reports.

This is the first time since the season ended that he has set a timetable to make a decision on his playing future.

Fitzgerald, who appeared on NFL Network’s Super Bowl pregame show, was asked if he was ready to play for new head coach Steve Wilks.

“I’m contemplating it, absolutely. I’m excited about what the future holds. Obviously there’s some things that need to happen in terms of personnel, draft and things like that to help our team improve,” he said. “but I’m confident that (general manager) Steve Keim and his group are going to do a good job with that.”

Asked if he was referring to the Cardinals’ quarterback situation, Fitzgerald said. “I think we’re in the same position as everybody around the league, as teams that are jockeying for position.”

The Cardinals’ quarterback situation is unsettled after the retirement of starter Carson Palmer. In addition, backups Drew Stanton and Blaine Gabbert are both free agents.

The Cardinals are expected to be among the teams to be interested in Kirk Cousins in free agency, but Fitzgerald also was asked if he’d consider returning if the Cardinals went with a rookie quarterback in 2018.

“It’s all hypothetical. I haven’t made any definite decisions. I’ll be ready in a week or two,” Fitzgerald said.
