Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald Says He Doesn’t Want to Play With Any Other Team

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is 34 years old but is coming off three straight seasons of 100-plus receptions and 1,000-plus yards.

Fitzgerald will be back for his 15th NFL season this fall, all of which he has played with the Cardinals. This is the last year of his current contract, meaning Fitzgerald could become a free agent next offseason. He admits he still has “purple in his veins” from his days as a Vikings ball boy, but he doesn’t see himself playing for the Vikings, Jace Frederick of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press reports.

“If I’m not playing in Arizona, I won’t be playing anywhere,” he said. “I’ve built a good life for myself down there. Playing in the same place for 15 years is a true blessing.”

“It doesn’t really matter about the age, it’s about what you put into it and your mind-set,” he said. “Everybody kind of takes numbers and assumes this is when it’s supposed to end. As an athlete, fortunately, you write your own script. If you still produce and you play at a high level, you kind of determine how long you want to play. If I can stay at a high level, I still keep destiny in my own hands.”
