New Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks told Arizona Sports 98.7:
“It’s a very exciting time for all of us. To all the Arizona Cardinals fans around the world, it’s very exciting because Larry mentioned to me last night that he is coming back for the 2018 season,” Wilks told Doug & Wolf Thursday morning on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station during Newsmakers Week.
“I’m extremely excited,” Wilks continued. “You’re talking about a future first-ballot Hall-of-Famer. I couldn’t be more excited to have Larry coming back next year. He is totally committed — those are his words — so we’re ecstatic to have him be part of the Arizona Cardinals.”
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Fitzgerald signed a 1-year, $11 million extension with a chance to earn $1 million more in incentives.
In addition, Fitzgerald could also be in for a historic milestone:
Next season could be a historic one for Larry Fitzgerald. He needs 390 receiving yards to pass Terrell Owens for the NFL’s second most all-time receiving yards, and 93 catches to pass Tony Gonzalez for second most all-time receptions.
