It’s become a common question the past couple of years for Larry Fitzgerald: Will he return for another season, or will he retire?
Although the Cardinals star signed a 2018 contract extension in November, the 34-year-old wide receiver said Thursday he hasn’t committed to playing next season.
“A lot of it’s tied to Carson (Palmer) — Carson’s playing at a high level,” Fitzgerald said at the time (via NFL.com). “I don’t want to go through any other quarterback situations. It’s been great to have the stability that we have now with the big fella, he’s been playing light’s out.”
If Fitzgerald returns for another year (or three), he’ll continue to climb the NFL’s all-time receiving charts, icing on the cake in a career that has already earned him a spot in Canton. Fitzgerald currently ranks third in both receptions and receiving yards, and could move up to second on both lists with another season. (Jerry Rice remains well out of reach atop both categories.)
Shazier made an emotional appearance Sunday at Heinz Field for his team’s big game against the Patriots, his first trip out of the hospital since his surgery.?
Vernon Shazier said before his interview with ESPN that he couldn’t get into specifics of his son’s injury. The Steelers have not elaborated in detail what Shazier’s surgery entailed nor about his prognosis.
“We’re praying for healing and keeping our mind and faith strong. We know we’re in a deep valley, but we do not feel alone,” said Vernon Shazier, an NFL chaplain who added: “It’s easy to be faithful in a storm, but we’re not talking about a drizzle. We’re talking about a hurricane, a category 5 [hurricane], lots of metaphors to describe it.”
On Tuesday, Shazier was announced as a Pro Bowl representative for his 89 tackles, three interceptions and two forced fumbles through 12 games and his teammates who’ve visited him say he’s eager to talk football strategy for the Steelers as they look to the playoffs.
