    He wants to pass T.O. on the all-time best WR list and trail only Rice.

    His reworked/extended contract has an incentive which pays him something like $500k for reaching that milestone (heard on the local radio show this morning).

    He is a stat guy and loves the history of the NFL. He knows where he is currently ranked and, I believe, he wants to move up a little more before stepping away.

    Personally, I feel he could play a few more years...and, depending on how things go next year, maybe he will...

    I think Larry was coming back all along regardless of the decisions from BA and CP.

    It would be VERY shocking if Larry walked away after this past season.

    Passing TO is something major. Like it would shock me if ANYONE didn't come back to do that if they were in Larry's position.

    He should pass TO just for the fact that TO shouldn't be 2nd on that list.

    So conflicting. My favorite athlete of all time. Cant imagine seeing him wear any other uniform or not being on the field for the Cards,,,, but the thought of Larry coming back to a rebuilding team with no QB kindof makes me sad. Hopefully we can make the moves to be competitive and not have it be a totally wasted year.

    One of his best years as a receiver was with Skelton, Kolb, and Bartel as our QB trio.

    Is it me. Or does it seem Fitz who has 109 catches and 1100+ yards. Isn't used enough. Lol. I mean he probably realistically should have 130 catches because we seem to not throw to him when we need to. Dude just catches the ball

    It would be asinine if he never makes the hall though.

    I think the Cards knew that BA and Palmer we're both retiring, and that's why Fitz was offered the extension for 2018. They want to do everything they can to keep him 1 more year and give him the full spotlight he deserves.

    In a different, more conventional system, isn't it also possible he won't be asked to block as much? That has to be worth consideration, for him.

    Have you seen the Fitzgerald football life? The part about him giving the ball to Bartel after the td pass is the best!

    I
    had the same thought. Pretty sure the BA and Palmer decisions were made 2 months ago

    BA said as much, when talked about how easy his decision seemed 6 weeks ago, when the season had gone to crap.
