Larry Fitzgerald Plans On Retiring After This Season

This will likely be Larry Fitzgerald's final NFL season.

Larry Fitzgerald, the future Hall of Fame wide receiver, plans on retiring after this season, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

He has "told people close to him that he expects 2016 to be his last season," Rapoport says.

Fitzgerald, 33, is a nine-time Pro Bowl wide receiver. He was the No. 3 overall pick out of Pittsburgh in the 2004 NFL Draft.

The NFL Hall of Fame most definitely awaits this star wide receiver.

Bill Belichick is certainly a fan.


"Hall-of-Fame career, great career," Belichick said on a conference call Tuesday. "Just does everything well. Great competitor, blocks, makes big catches, very consistent, unbelievable hands, big plays in the red area, scores touchdowns, unselfish player.

"I think he is a Hall-of-Fame receiver. One of the best that has played the game over this past period of time that he has been in the league."

Arizona's 2016 season begins tonight against New England at 8:30 p.m. E.T. on NBC.
