Fitzgerald, 34, will turn 35 before the start of next season, and coach Bruce Arians and quarterback Carson Palmer have already left. Still, Fitzgerald wasn't ready to commit either way Friday.

“I don’t have any timetable,” Fitzgerald said on the Golf Channel, via “I’m going to play golf tomorrow. On Tuesday, I’ll play golf again. Wednesday, I’ll play golf. Thursday, I’ll play more golf and we’ll figure it out as we go.”

Fitzgerald needs just 91 receptions to pass Tony Gonzalez for second on the all-time list, trailing only Jerry Rice.
