Larry Fitzgerald has given us 13 incredible NFL seasons as an Arizona Cardinal. There are grumblings that he may be done after this year, but we will wait for an official announcement from the future Hall of Fame wide receiver before getting all upset about not seeing him on the field on Sunday's. However, if this was Fitzgerald's final year he went out making NFL history! He led the NFL in receptions in 2016 with 107 catches. It's the 2nd time in his career leading the league in receptions and that's where the history comes in:
Really let that sink in ... leading the league in catches 11 seasons apart! Fitzgerald has been one of the most consistent wide outs over his career. He caught 80+ balls in 9 of 13 years going for 100+ grabs four times. He had 1,000 yards seasons 8 times and scored double-digit touchdowns five times. He's also in the top 10 all-time in NFL history in receptions (3rd), receiving yards (9th), and receiving touchdowns (7th).
Congratulations to Larry Fitzgerald for making NFL history in 2016!
