It’s time to come home, Larry. The Arizona Cardinals appear to have completely moved on from Larry Fitzgerald. By adding A.J. Green in free agency and Rondale Moore with the 49th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, it appears Fitz may need a new team. That’s if he wishes to continue his 17-year NFL career.
Should Fitz hang up the cleats, he would be a first ballot Hall of Famer. In the past, Fitz has said he would prefer to play for the Cardinals his entire career and nowhere else. There is no indication his feelings have changed.

Sure, the 11-time Pro Bowl receiver’s best football days are behind him. Still, Fitz would bring another dependable receiving option to the Minnesota Vikings at what would likely be a relatively low cost.
How much does Larry Fitzgerald have left in the tank?
While we don’t know an exact reason why Fitzgerald has yet to sign with a team or announce what could be his retirement, it’s possible his dwindling role within the offense is contributing to him still being unsigned.
Fitz will turn 38 before the 2021 season begins. He hasn’t made a Pro Bowl or had a 1,000-yard season since 2017. With that said, the numbers Fitz has still put up over the past three seasons dwarfs anything the Vikings have had for a third receiving option in that same time.
