The Arizona Cardinals are playing their final home game of the season Sunday, and it could be the last time Larry Fitzgerald plays in front of Cardinals fans as well.

Larry Fitzgerald Sr. tweeted out a message Sunday that hints his son could be hanging up the cleats after the season.

It wouldn’t be surprising in the least if Fitzgerald does finally decide to retire after this season. If you remember, he was waffling about even coming back in 2019 last offseason, and that’s been a trend the past couple of years.

Fitzgerald is a shoo-in Hall of Famer and should be a first-ballot inductee, five years after he retires. Heading into Week 15 of the 2019 season, he has 1,367 catches for 16,948 yards and 119 touchdowns over the course of his illustrious career.

Having spent his entire NFL career with the Cardinals, he’s a rare bird in today’s NFL.
