The 36-year-old also gives himself a chance to move up the all-time list in certain categories, as he ranks second on the all-time receiving yards list with 17,083 of them. He's also second with 1,378 receptions, and he ranks behind former San Francisco 49ers great Jerry Rice on both lists. Fitzgerald does need just eight touchdown catches to catch former Indianapolis Colts threat Marvin Harrison for fifth on the touchdowns list.
The question and headline of when Fitzgerald will retire will stick around for at least one more season, as the veteran did say he wants to retire quietly, without a farewell tour. Many thought he was going to call it quits once the Cardinals began bringing in more young talent and a younger coach in Kliff Kingsbury. In his first season catching passes from rookie quarterback Kyler Murray, Fitzgerald recorded 75 catches for 804 yards and four touchdowns in 2019. He will have at least one more season catching balls from the mobile young QB, who could be the future of the Cardinals organization.
