The Arizona Cardinals do not use receiver Larry Fitzgerald as their deep threat on offense, but that doesn’t mean he is slow.
Sure, he is the oldest receiver on the roster at 34 years old, but he still can outrun people.
So this stat shouldn’t be too surprising for fans.
Yes, his per-catch average was less than 10 yards last year, the lowest average of his career. It isn’t because he can’t run.
Will he show off his speed again in Week 2? If he has open field after he makes a catch, then yes.
