Morning Buzz: Will Packers utilize supplemental draft?
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee or brew some tea and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
We’ll start with Ryan Wood’s preview of the Arizona Cardinals as our opponent preview series begins to wind down.
Larry Fitzgerald, the greatest player in Arizona Cardinals history, enters what will likely be his final leg in 2018.
Amid speculation the All-Pro receiver might retire, Fitzgerald signed a one-year, $11 million contract with the Cardinals before last season concluded. Turning 35 in August, it’s possible — if not likely — the No. 3 overall pick of the 2004 draft will end his career after this season.
Nothing is ever certain until an aging star actually walks away from the game (see: Favre, Brett), but at Fitzgerald’s stage in his career, each season has the possibility of being his last. With 2018 serving as a victory lap for one of the greatest receivers the game has ever seen, it will be interesting to see what reception (no pun intended) Fitzgerald gets when the Cardinals visit the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Dec. 2.
Fitzgerald has been among the NFL’s best-ever receivers in his 14 seasons. His brilliance has left a stamp on most opponents, including the Packers. You remember his overtime rumble through the heart of the Packers defense during that 2015 NFC divisional-round loss.
