Larry Fitzgerald: 'I have no idea' if this is my last year

Is Larry Fitzgerald nearing the end of his Hall of Fame career? He's not ready to say just yet.

On Tuesday, the veteran wide receiver was asked at Cardinals OTAs if his 13th season could be his last.

"Honestly, I have no idea," Fitzgerald said, via the Cardinals' team site. "I really don't look at it like that."

From a production standpoint, Fitzgerald has no reason to shut it down now. The 32-year-old veteran found the fountain of youth in 2015, finishing with 109 receptions for 1,215 yards and nine touchdowns. Fitzgerald offered a reminder of his greatness in the postseason, authoring a performance for the ages in a divisional-round win over the Packers.

Last month, Fitzgerald hinted that his future could be linked to the future of his quarterback.

"A lot of it's tied to Carson (Palmer) -- Carson's playing at a high level," he said. "I don't want to go through any other quarterback situations. It's been great to have the stability that we have now with the big fella, he's been playing lights out."

Fitzgerald is the type of person you expect to find success beyond the football field and we wouldn't be surprised if he left a year too soon rather than a year too late. But expect him to ride out this Cardinals Super Bowl window.

A title is the only thing missing from an otherwise flawless resume.
