Larry Fitzgerald announced after the 2016 season he had no plans to retire. Entering the 2017 season, the Arizona Cardinals wide receiver is done answering questions each week about his future.
The Minnesota native said Monday night at the Arians Family Foundation charity dinner he will address his future only once at training camp in July.
“I'm going to answer it one time, and I'm not even going to address it anymore," Fitzgerald said, according to ESPN.
Fitzgerald spent most of last season dismissing speculation he would retire before the 2017 season. He waited until a month after the Cardinals season ended to announce he would return for at least one more season.
The 33-year-old is entering his 14th NFL season and continues to put together Pro Bowl-caliber seasons. He played in his 10th Pro Bowl last season after totaling 107 receptions for 1,023 yards and six touchdowns.
Fitzgerald’s career totals – 1,125 receptions, 14,389 yards, 104 touchdowns – rank among the best NFL receivers of all-time. He is also considered one of the best blocking receivers in the league.
When asked Monday if the pestering questions about his future became annoying, Fitzgerald did not hold back.
“Oh yeah, oh yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yup, it does," Fitzgerald said. "Everybody wants to know what the future holds, but nobody knows what the future holds. I don't know what it holds."
