With head coach Bruce Arians and quarterback Carson Palmer retiring, the future of the franchise hangs in the balance.

Larry Fitzgerald is enjoying his offseason in Orlando this week, playing in the Diamond Resorts Invitational golf tournament, but the 14-year National Football League veteran has a tough decision ahead of him.

"I don't have a head coach right now so there's a lot going on", Fitzgerald said in an interview with the Golf Channel. "I'm gonna take some time, figure it out". "I'm going to play golf tomorrow. I'm interested to see what is going to happen and I'll make a decision shortly after (they get a coach), I would imagine".

It sure would be awesome for Fitzgerald to eventually retire as a Super Bowl champion. His career record is 22-26, and his only winning season was a 9-7 campaign in his first year with the team.

Fitzgerald can still produce at a high level.

The Cardinals have interviewed eight candidates for their vacant head-coaching job: Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo and defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia and linebackers coach Brian Flores, Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak, Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, Cardinals defensive coordinator James Bettcher and Falcons special-teams coach Keith Armstrong.

Cardinals fans everywhere want to know whether Fitzgerald plans on returning for a 15th season, after hauling in 109 passes for 1,156 yards and six touchdowns last season.
