Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald achieves major milestone vs. Seahawks


Larry Fitzgerald is one of the greatest wide receivers to ever play in the National Football League. That has been a cold, hard fact for several years now.

On Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks, Fitzgerald joined an extremely exclusive club of NFL pass catchers. With 113 receiving yards against the Seahawks, Fitzgerald brought his career receiving yards total to 15,066, making him just the sixth player in NFL history to accumulate 15,000 or more career receiving yards.

Fitzgerald joins legends Tony Gonzalez (15,127), Isaac Bruce (15,208), Randy Moss (15,292), Terrell Owens (15,934), and Jerry Rice (22,895) in the prestigious 15,000-yard club.

At 34-years-old, Fitzgerald, who has spent all 14 of his NFL seasons with the Cardinals, is undeniably on the back nine of his illustrious career. The 10-time Pro Bowl and three-time All-Pro selection is already a lock to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame – possibly in his first year of eligibility – whenever he decides to hang up his cleats and retire.

If he can manage to play one or two more seasons beyond 2017, though, Fitzgerald will likely finish his career in second place on the all-time receptions and receiving yards list (behind Rice).
