Top 17 of 2017: Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald makes his mark

Larry Fitzgerald's impact on the football field is well known.

The Arizona Cardinals' star wideout is a sure-fire Hall of Famer, and one of the best football players to grace the Valley of the Sun.

Fitz is a fixture in the community across the Valley, and that's why the NFL named him the 2017 Walter Payton Man of the Year.

As for his work on the gridiron, Fitzgerald just keeps on grinding. He passed Tony Gonzalez for fifth all-time in receiving yards.

The only other player in NFL history with 15,000 yards on one team is Jerry Rice, widely regarded as the best wide receiver in football history. That's pretty good company.

Fitzgerald wears a helmet for a living, and he still manages to be the face of a city.

And don't worry about those retirement rumors cropping back up in 2018: Larry's locked in for another year with the Cardinals.
