  • Fitzgerald's decision to sign a one-year extension doesn't necessarily mean he'll play in 2018,'s Josh Weinfuss reports. The one-year, $11 million deal, which includes a no-trade clause, simply ensures that Fitzgerald will stay in Arizona if he does indeed continue his career. It also hints that he plans to do so, but he could still opt for retirement in the offseason. As for the more immediate future, Sunday brings a road matchup against a Houston defense that has surrendered three straight 300-yard passing games. Blaine Gabbert will start at quarterback and may prove to be an upgrade from Drew Stanton (knee).

  • Fitzgerald and the Cardinals agreed Friday to a one-year contract extension, keeping the wideout in Arizona through the 2018 campaign, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. According to Mike Jurecki of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, the deal includes a no-trade clause and is worth $11 million, the same salary figure that Fitzgerald received in 2016 and 2017. After Fitzgerald's yards-per-reception mark dipped to a career-worst 9.6 in 2016, the 34-year-old has bounced back a bit this season, hauling in 60 passes for 677 yards (11.3 average) and three touchdowns through nine games. Though the 10-time Pro Bowler is on the downside of his career, Fitzgerald is still quite clearly the Cardinals' No. 1 wideout, and would likely maintain that role if he elects to play again in 2018. Fitzgerald had previously contemplated retirement last offseason, but the contract extension presumably indicates that he plans to play at least one more season.

  • Fitzgerald is closing in on an extension with the Cardinals through the 2018 season, Kent Somers of The Arizona Republic reports. Fitzgerald's previous contract included an extension through the current campaign and a voidable year in 2018, the latter of which was intended to aid with management of the salary cap. Neither party has confirmed details of the contract, but the wide receiver will soon commit to a 15th season with the Cardinals.

  • Fitzgerald brought in 10 of 14 targets for 113 yards in Thursday's 22-16 loss to the Seahawks. The trusted veteran paced all receivers in receptions, receiving yardage and targets on the night, an unsurprising development given his sizable role in the Cardinals' offense irrespective of who's behind center. Fitzgerald now has five double-digit target games this season along with a trio of 100-yard and double-digit catch efforts. With 60 receptions through nine games, he remains on pace for a third straight 100-catch season. He'll look to continue building toward that goal against the Texans in Week 11.

  • Fitzgerald brought in five of nine targets for 70 yards in Sunday's 20-10 win over the 49ers. The veteran receiver didn't see too much of a downturn in production during Drew Stanton's first full game behind center. Fitzgerald's reception, receiving yardage and target totals were all team highs, and he managed at least 70 yards receiving for the fourth time in eight games. The 34-year-old figures to continue serving as the team's No. 1 receiver with Stanton directing the offense, even while his overall efficiency may take a hit due to the latter's occasional inaccuracy. Fitzgerald will look to continue producing against the Seahawks in Week 10.
