Props for Jim Gray to doing the Lord's work. The erstwhile sports host, who hosts the SiriusXM podcast "Let’s Go! With Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald and Jim Gray," knows everyone has been asking about Fitz coming back. Steve Keim said last week that Fitz was content in his life. Sounds like Fitz agrees.
Gray said to Fitz that Fitz "never announced an official retirement. We get the awful news about DeAndre Hopkins on your Arizona Cardinals team. He's going to be out for some time. May be able to come back for the playoffs. Uncertain right now and probably improbable." Gray also brought up the ACL tear for Buccaneers receiver Chris Godwin.
"Will you reconsider now coming back to play football?" Gray asked.
Fitz then crushed the hopes of so many that have tweeted at me or sent questions to the mailbag.
"Nothing’s changed on that front, Jim, for me," Fitzgerald said.
Fitz went on to talk about how he felt bad for both Hop and Godwin, and how the Cardinals were going to make the playoffs, and how he hoped Hopkins would be able to make it back. But if anyone wasn't sure about Fitz's thoughts on being done -- without him saying absolutely "I'm done" -- then this is it.
If he was going to return, this was his chance. But it's not happening.
