The biggest concern left this offseason is over for the Arizona Cardinals.

No they have not signed a quarterback, more importantly they will have a weapon for that quarterback to throw to, whomever it may be.

Larry Fitzgerald is returning to the Arizona Cardinals for the 2018 season.

Perhaps the greatest Cardinal in franchise history will return for his 15th season of his career, all of which have been in the desert.

Fitz has put up strong numbers under Bruce Arians over the last five years:

470 catches, 5,132 yards and 33 touchdowns, which is good for a per season average of 94 catches 1,026 yards and just under seven touchdowns a season.

Not bad for a guy who played every season on the wrongside of 30 and moved to a new position.

Now, fair or not, the Cardinals need even more from Fitz, as they’ll need him to continue to produce at a historic level, and Fitz will want that as well.

Fitz is 92 catches from second place all time, 390 yards from second place all time in receiving yards and needs five touchdowns to pass Antonio Gates for sixth all time on the receiving touchdowns list.

The Cardinals will be better next season because of Fitz, now how can they help him reach those marks?
