That Hall of Fame slot will have to stay v Antworten

PHOENIX (AP) — acant for a while. Larry Fitzgerald isn’t ready to hang up the cleats just yet.The receiver Zach Allen Arizona Cardinals Jersey , whose career statistics rank among the best ever to play the game, has signed a one-year contract to return for a 16th season with the Arizona Cardinals.“No player has meant more to this franchise or this community than Larry Fitzgerald,” team President Michael Bidwill said Wednesday in the news release announcing the signing.Fitzgerald explained his decision in an Instagram post.“A fire burned inside of me my rookie year,” he wrote, “a desire, over all else, to be great. To excel on the field. To impact the lives of others off of it. I’m grateful that the fire still burns just as bright today, and that this organization has let me chase that fire for well over a decade.”Fitzgerald continued: “Nothing excites me more than continuing to chase greatness with everyone here on and off the field.”Fitzgerald, who will be 36 before the next season begins, may have been enticed by the hiring of Kliff Kingsbury to replace the fired Steve Wilks. Kingsbury will bring his “air raid” offense from Texas Tech, where he coached for six seasons, and brought in veteran assistant coach Tom Clements to work with quarterback Josh Rosen 2019 Zach Allen Jersey , who had a rocky rookie season.In recent years, State Farm Stadium rocked with chants of “Lar-ry! Lar-ry!” after one of his inevitable big plays. Probably no sports figure in Arizona has been as well-loved as No. 11.Bidwill said in an interview with the team’s flagship radio station, 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station, that he believes Kingsbury’s hiring helped lure Fitzgerald back.“I think they had a great conversation and he’s excited about focusing on the offense,” Bidwill said. “Obviously, he was very disappointed as all of us were in 2018. He bleeds Cardinal red. He wants to be part of getting this turned around. It’s exciting he was able to make a quick decision and get right to it.”Arizona went 3-13 last season, the worst record in the NFL and matching the worst for the Cardinals since the franchise moved to the desert from St. Louis 30 years ago. The Cardinals finished last in the league in total offense, passing and rushing.Consequently, it was a down year for Fitzgerald statistically, too. After three straight 100-catch seasons, Fitzgerald had 69 receptions for 734 yards and six touchdowns. He did, however Terry Beckner Arizona Cardinals Jersey , throw his first career TD pass, against the Rams in the next-to-last game of the season.Fitzgerald has been remarkably durable in his career. He’s caught a pass in 227 consecutive games, the second-longest such streak in NFL history.He passed more milestones last season.With 16,279 yards receiving, Fitzgerald passed Hall of Famer Terrell Owens for second (behind Jerry Rice) on the NFL career list. With 1,303 career catches, he passed Rice for most receptions for one team in his career. By playing in the season finale at Seattle, Fitzgerald tied kicker Jim Bakken for most games by a Cardinal at 234.Fitzgerald needs 23 catches to pass Antonio Gates into second (again behind Rice) in career receptions.Drafted No. 3 overall by the Cardinals out of Pittsburgh in 2004, Fitzgerald has never indicated a desire to play anywhere else, despite the intermittent struggles of the team.He’s caught passes from 19 quarterbacks during his time in Arizona, with the most memorable years coming when he was paired with Kurt Warner and Carson Palmer.He’s been at his best in the postseason.No one has matched his record of 942 yards receiving in his first nine playoff games. He has five 100-yard receiving games in the postseason, an NFL-best three of at least 150 yards.At the news conference announcing his hiring Cheap Terry Beckner Jersey , the 49-year-old Kingsbury was asked about trying to woo Fitzgerald back for another season.“What a great role model, what a great leader to have on your team,” Kingsbury said at the time, “and I would be honored to work with him. He’s a guy I’ve admired from afar for a long time.”Fitzgerald earned $11 million each of the past two years and this deal probably is about the same.“I don’t want to push Larry, I want him to come to his own decision,” Bidwill said. “When he was ready . we did the deal. Was over at his house signing it on his kitchen table yesterday morning before he left town.”It’s been a good month for Fitzgerald. Last week, while playing golf with former President Barack Obama, he hit a hole in one.Now Fitzgerald, who shared the NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year award with Eli Manning in 2016, will probably be off soon on one of his trademark trips to some faraway part of the world.Most importantly for the Cardinals and their fans, he’ll be back when summer workouts begin. One of the key things we will see this offseason from the Arizona Cardinals, and something that the Cardinals know they have to take advantage of is having the top waiver wire priority from now until eternity.Well 2019 Terry Beckner Jersey , what feels like eternity.Yesterday was the first time we saw it in action as the Arizona Cardinals signed linebacker Tanner Vallejo from the Cleveland Browns.From the team:Some 2017 draft tidbits on Vallejo from around the web:Lance Zierlein: Vallejo’s outstanding production his sophomore season is one of the things keeping him alive in scouting circles. From a physical standpoint, he’s an undersized inside linebacker who lacks the long levers needed to keep offensive linemen off of him. His instincts and third-down ability are plusses, but he’ll need to find the right 3-4 fit or attempt to move to an outside linebacker role in a 4-3. Vallejo has NFL backup potential.Tony Pauline: Vallejo is a defender who makes plays with his head and heart more so then with athleticism. He offers potential as a fifth or sixth linebacker on a roster and comes with a special-teams mentality.Pro Football Focus: Vallejo is a unique study, because his overall grade of 93.1 as a sophomore in 2014 was the second-highest among all FBS LBs, but injuries and missed tackles severely limited his production in 2015 and 2016. Boise State often treated him as a nickel back against three- and four-WR sets, which freed him up in terms of space, yet he saw limited action in man coverage. He has the competitiveness to take on blocks effectively despite his size, but tends to get absorbed and lose track of the ball, and his containment assignments.
