The NFL season has only just started but we may already be witnessing the final moments of one great career.

According to a report from NFL Network's resident insider Ian Rapoport, Arizona Cardinals star Larry Fitzgerald is considering retiring from football at the end of this season.

The legendary wide receiver has had an amazing career to date, but at 33-years-old it seems like he might be calling time.

Rapoport tweeted out before the Sunday games kicked off: "#AZCardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald has told people close to him that he expects 2016 to be his last season. Assuming it holds, the HOF awaits"

Interestingly, Larry Fitgerald Sr. replied to Rapoport's tweet, saying that he had heard nothing of the sort from his son.

Fitzgerald showed no signs of slowing down last season, looking more like the Larry Fitzgerald of old rather than an old Fitz. 

The Cardinals veteran compiled 1,215 yards on 109 receptions in 2015. That was the first time he had surpassed the 100-catch mark since 2007 and he broke a three-year spell where he didn't break 1000 receiving yards.

After suffering playoff heartbreak against the Carolina Panthers last year in the NFC Championship game, the Cardinals will be hoping to go one step further and finally get Fitzgerald the ring he has been searching for his entire career.
