Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald stated that the retirements of head coach Bruce Arians and quarterback Carson Palmer have not affected his decision on when he decides to retire. This comes in after there was a report that Fitzgerald would not retire until he found out who the new coach is. If Fitzgerald was to return, he would be considered a solid WR2 for the upcoming season despite his advanced age.
Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer has officially retired one day after head coach Bruce Arians announced his own retirement. This move was not completely unexpected, as Palmer had considered retirement throughout the season. With Arizona seemingly losing several key pieces this offseason, an acquisition via free agency or the draft at the position is almost a must. This should also have a large effect on players such as running back David Johnson and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. However, it will take time to determine what their fantasy values will be for the upcoming season.
Just as Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians has announced his retirement, there is speculation that quarterback Carson Palmer and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald might retire this offseason as well. This would be a huge blow to the team, as they would lose their franchise signal caller and leading wide receiver in one year. Fitzgerald finished the year as a WR1 while Palmer spent much of the year injured. Even if one or both of these players return, it is unknown how much they will fit with what will undoubtedly be a new offensive scheme.
