Fitzgerald: Don't expect any tears when I retire

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald said he's feeling good ahead of his 14th season in Arizona and he's not ready yet to talk about whether 2017 will be his last year in the NFL.

Josh Weinfuss ESPN Staff Writer 

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald was asked today if this will be his last season. He didn't say one way or the other: "I feel good right now. When that changes, I'll let you know but it will never be in front of a podium, and there will be no tears and none of that stuff. That's not how ever it'll be. That's not how I am. I'm just one player out of 1,600 in the National Football League and it's a lot bigger than me. It's never going to be like that." Fitzgerald is entering his 14th season, all with the Cardinals.
