Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald is returning for the final year of his contract in 2017, he told ESPN’s Jim Trotter.

Fitzgerald confirmed the news later Wednesday, texting: “Truthful Trotter.”

Fitzgerald said Tuesday he had an announcement to make about his future that he wanted to mull over a little more before revealing, but the veteran felt better about his decision Wednesday.

The Cardinals were reportedly waiting on Fitzgerald and quarterback Carson Palmer as the 33-year-old receiver weighed his options. Fitzgerald has one year remaining on his deal, carrying a $15.85-million cap hit.

Fitzgerald hasn’t shown many signs of slowing down as he led the NFL in receptions this season with 107 and recorded his second straight 1,000-yard campaign in his 13th season.
