Talk about a fall from grace. Someone will take a chance on him and rightly so.

I'm thinking it might be more his decision.

Is it actually confirmed? Arians denies it in the article.
Hearing reports I'm retiring. News to me. Nothing could be further from truth & 100% focused on getting back on track at SF! #birdgang
"I don't know who put that out there," Arians told Fitzsimmons. "But that's something I never think about until the end of the season. I'm just focused on being 1-0 this week."

I don't think it's confirmed. It would be strange to see him go, honestly. He's a good coach on a solid team with a quarterback problem.

You're probably right. This brings up another question. The cards are pretty much done this year, what about trading for Fitz? NFL.com places his value at a 2018 4th and 2019 5th.

Is he that much better than Diggs/AT at this point in his career? He'd also have to learn a new playbook and chemistry with one or more new QBs. Also, Rick doesn't have a ton of picks next year as it is. I'm not sure we're a WR away from the Super Bowl. I'd love him back in Minnesota, I don't see it happening though.

How about Mathieu? :v):

Diggs/AT is a great duo my worry is Diggs can't make it through a season. I think adding in a solid third option would be killer plus there's the mentorship aspect Fitz brings. It's certainly a luxury trade and not necessary, would just be cool to see him in purple. What pick did we lose next year, the conditional for Bradford?

Yep. 4th rounder. And 7th for Brock.

Arians hasn't told the team if he will return. Cardinals eyeing candidates.
