It's no secret legendary wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is in the twilight of his career. For a couple of offseasons, Arizona Cardinals fans haven't been sure what to expect from him or if they should expect anything at all.

And Fitz' father isn't doing much to inspire confidence. Larry Fitzgerald Sr. stirred rumors of his son's possible retirement by sending out a preemptive "thank you" tweet to Cardinals fans for all of their support during his son's tenure with the team.

Sunday's afternoon showdown against the Cleveland Browns marks the last home game of the year for the Cardinals, and if Fitzgerald retires, that means it will be the last home game of his career.

It's been one fantastic career for him down in Arizona. Ever since he was drafted with the No. 3 overall pick in 2004, he's been the gold standard at wide receiver, racking up 16,948 receiving yards in 247 career games while going to 11 Pro Bowls.

It's still yet to be decided if 2019 will be his last year in the NFL, but this tweet from his father certainly seems to suggest that it likely is.

All that's left to do at this point, though, is wait. Cardinals fans better brace themselves for this upcoming offseason.
