The former Cardinal picked the Denver Broncos to defeat the Seattle Seahawks 24-17 before taking off on a route.
He started to slip off his suit jacket, shuffled his feet off the line as if he was juking a defender and caught an easy touchdown from the lefty Young.
“He hasn’t officially retired, has he?” ESPN’s Suzy Kolber said.
Fitzgerald has still not announced his official retirement form the NFL, but he’s enjoyed his off time playing in golf Pro-Ams as well as his newest venture, as a member of the MNF crew.
The wideout got to spend time with Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf before the game and Fitzgerald mentioned how he loved how physical Metcalf was on the line, even getting to pick his brain on a few moves.
Monday Night Football brought out all of the stops as former Heisman award winner Robert Griffin III raced Seattle’s osprey and surprisingly beat it in a race.

Griffin joked that the Dallas Cowboys called him after their starting QB had surgery on his throwing thumb. Could the Cardinals make a similar call back to Fitzgerald?
