Fitzgerald now fifth in all-time receiving yards

HOUSTON — Fitz is fifth.

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald moved into fifth place on the NFL’s all-time receiving yards list with a 20-yard touchdown catch with 7 minutes, 27 seconds left in the second quarter Sunday against the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium.

Fitzgerald, who signed a one-year extension with Arizona last week, came into the game with 15,066 career receiving yards, 61 behind Tony Gonzalez’s 15,127. After the touchdown catch, Fitzgerald had 15,131 yards.

Next on the list is Isaac Bruce, who’s in fourth place with 15,208.

Fitzgerald, 34, is in his 14th season in the NFL. He ranks in the top 10 in receptions and yards.

While an extension doesn’t ensure he won’t retire, Fitzgerald has said that what keeps him coming back year after year is the quest for a Super Bowl ring.
