Larry Fitzgerald would only commit to one eve Antworten

SEATTLE (AP) — nt taking place after the final game of his 15th NFL season and at least for now it had nothing to do with a retirement ceremony.“I feel like we’ve done this dance before. Same song Hakeem Butler Jersey , same dance,” Fitzgerald said. “I’m going to go play golf tomorrow, I know that. I’m looking forward to it.”Fitzgerald’s future will remain one of the big questions going into the Arizona Cardinals offseason after finishing off 2018 with a 27-24 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The loss ensured the Cardinals will have the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft, but also did little to settle any uncertainty about the future of head coach Steve Wilks after a disappointing first season in Arizona.Whether Fitzgerald is around to play with that No. 1 selection is going to be a wait and see matter.“I told him he was coming back. I told him I’ll see him next year in the spring and to get ready for OTAs,” Cardinals running back David Johnson said.In the finale of his 15th season, Fitzgerald still looked the part of an NFL wide receiver and exceptional pass catcher with four catches for 36 yards. He caught the 116th touchdown pass of his career and became the third player with at least 1,300 career receptions. He matched the franchise record for career games played with his 234th game in a Cardinals uniform and became the second wide receiver in league history with 2,000 yards receiving against three different teams joining Jerry Rice.His first reception came on the final play of the first quarter and extended his streak to 227 straight games with a catch. His best catch was in the second quarter as he initially faked a block, slipped behind cornerback Akeem King and made a one-handed reception for his sixth touchdown of the season.His 116 career TDs are tied for sixth with Chargers tight end Antonio Gates.“I was smiling at him when he came off the sidelines. He caught it with his fingertips. It’s unbelievable,” Wilks said. “What he does never seems to surprise me. It’s just unbelievable.”Fitzgerald finished the season with 69 receptions for 734 yards, his fewest catches since 2014 when he missed two games and finished with only 63 receptions. The yards were a career-low while adjusting to an offense led by rookie Josh Rosen. Rosen would love to see Fitzgerald return and joked the “recruiting does not stop in college.”For his part, Fitzgerald and many of his teammates seemed more interested in supporting Wilks after a difficult first season that included several key injuries and the firing of offensive coordinator Mike McCoy after a 1-6 start.“His messages have been consistent. When you’re consistent personality-wise and coaching-wise , it makes it easy for guys to follow. The message never changed when we won, never changed when we lost,” Fitzgerald said. “That’s consistency.It’s hard to see that. You don’t see that much in this league. From people talking outside the building to players inside the building. You don’t see that kind of consistency, so that’s rare.”Wilks said he hasn’t been provided any clarity about his job status.“You have to win in this league. We kind of felt that we needed to put out a good show out there today,” Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson said. “Not only for his sake, but for us.” With 8 picks left, what could the Cardinals be looking to address on the final day of the 2019 NFL Draft?The Revenge of the Birds podcast8 Players the Arizona Cardinals could target on Day 3New,32commentsWith 8 picks left, what could the Cardinals be looking to address on the final day of the 2019 NFL Draft? 8 Players the Arizona Cardinals could target on Day 3Steve Keim and the Arizona Cardinals have been heroes and villains within the span of the last 48 hours.From the controversial Kyler Murray pick and dealing Josh Rosen to bringing in a hometown kid, a speedster and a pass rusher, they’ve had fans along for quite a ride.With the dark cloud of Rosen and Kyler gone from the team, let’s settle in and take a look at three players & positions the Arizona Cardinals might look to in Rounds 4-7 this morning.Defense:Deionte Thompson Kyler Murray Arizona Cardinals Jerseys , Safety, AlabamaA safety?Well, the Cardinals might not see much more of D.J. Swearinger given the one year left on his deal and Thompson, while he has had some health questions, might be a true center-fielder with speed.The multiple DB’s that will be used by Vance Joseph make him an intriguing option.Blake Cashman, Linebacker, MinnesotaA productive linebacker who tore up the combine and leaped sky-high up the draft boards, Cashman was the leader of Minnesota’s defense.He’s the size that Vance Joseph needs and is a smart and explosive athlete, giving the team a much needed potential back-up plan if Hasson Reddick doesn’t work out.Heck, it’s possible that he starts over Hasson Reddick.Good player.Kendall Sheffield, Ohio StateA later round option, Sheffield had a bit of an interesting journey Womens Kyler Murray Jerseys , transferring from Alabama to Junior College and then to Ohio State where he was a 2 year starter.His physical measurables and speed for recovery are top notch and he’s great when aware at defending passes but has struggled locating passes and playing with his back to the ball, making him a developmental option who can help on special teams.If the team takes a shot on him, he could replace Brandon Williams in that role.Offense:Dru Samia, Guard, OklahomaSamia is the highest rated of the two guards who blocked for Kyler Murray and Baker Mayfield and he’d fit in very nicely in the Kingsbury offense at either right or left guard as a guy who’s athletic enough to be a starter in the league and is well used to blocking for Kyler when he buys time in the pocket.OL is critical for this team.Antoine Wesley, WR, Texas TechThis name popped out to some when seeing that college.On the outside, Wesley is a bit thin but went off for 1300 yards in his single year starting and despite lack of speed and needing more nuanced route running, as a big-play physical catch weapon at his 6’5 size he could plug right into Kliff Kingsbury’s offense, again.He might not even need to change out his playbook.Marquez Tucker, OT, Southern UtahA late name that’s been connected for a developmental tackle for the Cardinals , and they did spend some time visiting him, making him a possible option on the outside at right or left tackle behind Marcus Gilbert for depth or to get a shot on the interior potentially.Foster Moreau, TE, LSUMoreau didn’t get a good chance to do much given LSU never likes having good quarterback play but his blocking and ability to catch the ball downfield and up the seam could stick out for Kliff Kingsbury, who might need a true receiving tight end to adapt his college offense to a pro-style one.Hakeem Butler, Wide Receiver, Iowa StateButler’s a conundrum to many.His drop rate and routes are below most NFL players but his athleticism for his size, catch radius and highlight-reel plays are incredible, and he averaged over 20 yards a catch in college.Considering that the Cardinals don’t have a big, outside wide receiver and that Kliff Kingsbury likes the deep shot...perhaps they take a chance on him.If the Cardinals are using PFF’s board (like many seem to think given their picks) he’s a possibility to open the 4th round and might be a fan favorite if selected.
