Larry Fitzgerald (Arizona Cardinals)

One of the few instances where a player spends his entire career with one organization, Larry Fitzgerald is one of the greatest that this league has seen. He’s known to make a Fitzmagical grab when it’s needed the most and he’s on the outs.

Fitzgerald’s stellar career includes 11 Pro-Bowl selections and a trip to Super Bowl XLII falling short by literal toe tips. Over his 15-year career, Fitzgerald has over is third all-time in receptions with over 1,200 and receiving yards with over 15,000. He sits in eight all-time with 111 touchdowns and he’s gone over the century mark for receptions in a season on four separate occasions.

Over the summer Fitzgerald stated that he would never play for another organization other than the Cardinals so it seems as if this move would be highly unlikely. Howie Roseman has been known to pull off the unthinkable though, and bringing in one of the all-time greats may just top the list.

With the Cardinals season finished before it ever started, the prospect of migrating to the defending Super Bowl champions and snagging the only piece missing from his trophy shelf may be enough for Fitzgerald to change his mind and turn this stretch into a reality.
