It could be a make-or-break season for the Arizona Cardinals.
Arizona is one of the few teams with a legit chance at winning a Super Bowl in 2016, but that can all change after this year. The Cardinals will have more than 20 free agents when this season ends and their future Hall of Fame wide receiver is reportedly leaning towards retirement.
Larry Fitzgerald has told close confidants that he expects this season to be his last, according to NFL.com.
The 33-year-old receiver indicated recently that he had a lot of football left in him and it showed last year. The veteran wideout signed a one-year extension last month.
Fitzgerald caught 109 passes for 1,215 yards in 2015. It was the first time he broke the 100-catch barrier since 2007 and his receiving yards total was his best since 2011. His 12th season was highlighted by a vintage-Fitzgerald performance in the NFC playoffs against the Green Bay Packers where the veteran receiver hauled in eight catches for 176 yards and a touchdown in a 26-20 win.
The wideout is hoping year 13 is a lucky one.
Arizona has a wealth of talent on offense and defense. Wide receivers John Brown and Michael Floyd have both emerged as reliable receivers as Fitzgerald has slowed down just a tad.
If Carson Palmer can perform at the same level that he did a year ago, Arizona should be playing into January and maybe even February.
