Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald acknowledges that the window is closing for him to win a Super Bowl before his career is over.
“I don’t have another eight, nine years to play,” Fitzgerald said, according to Dan Bickley of The Arizona Republic. “I would love to, but realistically, that’s not going to happen. So the window of opportunity is short, and that’s another reason why I talked to Michael (Floyd), why I talk to Andre (Roberts).
“I tell them, ‘Before you know it, you’re going to look down and find gray hair in your beard. You’re going to be sore in parts that were never sore before. It changes that fast, and I never realized that before. So I need your best right now.’ Adrian (Wilson) is telling the defense the same thing, getting everyone to buy in because we need to make it happen now.”
At the end of the day, the most important thing to Fitzgerald is winning a Super Bowl.
“When it’s all said and done, I don’t want people to say, ‘Yeah, he was a talented guy who put up numbers, but he was never able to win the ultimate prize,’ ” Fitzgerald said. “That’s where my mind-set is at.”
