On Sunday morning, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald would likely retire at the end of the 2016 season -- even though Fitzgerald's father responded by tweeting that this was news to him.
After the Cardinals' heartbreaking loss to the New England Patriots in their season opener, Fitzgerald himself addressed the report.
Bottom line: It sounds like Fitzgerald's mind is far from made up.
This was Fitz's reaction when asked about his future.

Fitzgerald, who signed a contract extension with the Cardinals last month, scored the 99th and 100th touchdowns of his career Sunday, becoming just the 10th man in NFL history to record 100 receiving touchdowns. He also moved into 14th place on the list of the NFL's all-time receiving yard leaders.
.@LarryFitzgerald does it AGAIN!
