    In my opinion he's still needed on this team.

    Yes, naturally Larry has lost a step (its not 2014), but Kyler wasn't feeding him. I think if we had a primary 4 of Hop, Green, Kirk, and Larry, we'd be sitting pretty good for 2021. All Larry does is catch the football. I don't care what level we are talking about, this is easily 85% of being a receiver (which is why Isabella sucks so bad; when I saw the ball bounce of his facemask, I threw the towel in on that kid). IDK if it will be $11 million, but they will give Fitz a respectful deal to come back (and I guarantee its not the vet min fellas)...

    I dont think it was fake news at all. I think they were holding off on AB for Larry. When Larry wasn't committing and Seattle was going to come after AB, Tampa pulled the trigger and brought AB back.

    Larry is 70/30 coming back IMO. I think he has probably lost his patience with the roster deficits over the years, but I think he could be lured back out.

    Fitz had more targets in 2020 than Julio Jones. He’s already faded away to replacement level.

    Larry has been the ideal pro's pro and for all we are privy to as fans is the model professional athlete off the field with all his community work and interests but not announcing his intentions by now is pure diva... because he knows and if he does not know by now and has doubts, then that in itself is usually when a professional athlete needs to walk away from the sport

    I think it’s a pipe dream that anyone really believes Legend is coming back to the Cardinals & probably any other team at this point with the season on the horizon

    I have thought he was going to retire the whole time. I felt this year was different. The team has worked like he is not returning. He isn't coming back.

    I like Larry
    Larry can still contribute in a big way as a possession receiver

    But only if Kyler will throw him the ball

    as much as I hate to say it...... Larry should reunite with BA and catch passes from Brady for a season or two

    I'm hoping Fitz comes back this year and I do realize he isn't what he was.

    So the guy has said several times he wouldn't make a big deal out of retiring and yet everybody is wondering what he is doing. Maybe he isn't making a big deal out of it like he said?

    If Larry wants to play another season on a reasonable contract, the Cardinals should keep him. When you have a chance to keep an an elite player for his entire career you do it.

    I thought it was so classy the way the Mavericks kept Dirk Nowitzki for his entire career.

    He is doing one of two things, and retirement to me is 99% of the possibility for this exact reason. But I do know Larry hates OTA’s , preseason etc etc , and he is a bit of a troll so I could see him coming back later in the off-season.

    I am a-ok if they build a statue for Larry. Just say NO to signing him again.
