Fitzgerald came to Arizona in the 2004 NFL Draft as the third overall pick out of the University of Pittsburgh.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has made a decision to continue his Hall of Fame-worthy career and play his 15th season in 2018. That's a challenge for a receiver who will be 35 before the season kicks off. "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. Fitzgerald will make $11 million in base salary in 2018, the final year of his contract extension.

Larry Fitzgerald won't follow Carson Palmer and Bruce Arians riding into the sunset in 2018.

"I'm extremely excited", Wilks said. Fitzgerald caught 30 passes for 546 yards and seven touchdowns in Arizona's improbable march to Super Bowl XLIII.

Runcie said the teen was arrested without incident after he was located off the school grounds in a nearby community. There was no word on the extent of those injuries. "I don't know the specifics", the sheriff said .

Fitzgerald is third in National Football League history in career receptions and receiving yards, and he's No. 1 in both categories among receivers who have only played for one National Football League team. He added 1,156 yards and six touchdowns.

Jerry Rice, in first place in both categories, is likely unreachable in both catches (1,549) and yards (22,895). Before then, we'll get at least one more season to marvel at his greatness on the field.

"Last night, I was partying myself (with the news)", Wilks said.

Fitzgerald is one of the greatest receivers ever, and will land in the Hall of Fame someday.
