Fitzgerald led the league with 107 receptions, but he showed his age in 2016. He averaged a career-low 9.6 yards per reception, which ranked 116th out of 154 qualified receivers. Football Outsiders listed him as the 56th-best wideout in DYAR (defense-adjusted yards above replacement), down from fourth in 2015.
While Fitzgerald's performance dipped, he could still be an integral member of the Cardinals offense for another year. Especially after John Brown's receiving yards fell almost by half (1,003 in 2015 to 517 in 2016), Arizona will be happy to have Fitzgerald around for next season.
