New coach Steve Wilks said Tuesday he had a conversation with wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, but the wide receiver has not indicated to him one way or the other if Fitzgerald was planning on playing in 2018. Wilks made it clear it was important to him -- and the Cardinals -- that Fitz return.
"We would definitely love to have him back," Wilks said. "He's a major part of our success, past, present and future. First ballot Hall of Famer, so we'd definitely want him back."
Team president Michael Bidwill, who has said before he had no interest in speculating -- or even speculating on the speculation -- was asked what his gut told him about what Fitzgerald might do.
"My gut says everyone needs to relax, let Fitz go through his process, and give him a few weeks to make his decision," Bidwill said. "He'll let us know."
