Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires It sounds like a decision might have to do with the roster situation around him. And if that’s the case, it makes sense with the Cardinals having quite a few soon-to-be free agents on the 2016 roster.At 33 years old and as a 13-year NFL veteran, Fitzgerald first fueled speculation he’s not a lock to return next year when the Cardinals were mathematically eliminated from the playoffs with their loss to the Saints.“I got two more games to go,” Fitzgerald said Sunday. “I will play those games as hard as I can against two division opponents and we will see what goes on this offseason. My attention is solely focused on Seattle this Saturday.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “No, I wouldn’t say that I’m contemplating it right now,” Fitzgerald said. “But I’m uncertain what I’m going to do moving forward. But I still love the game, I love the competition. I love being around the guys and competing for a championship. That’s a lot of fun to me. That’s kind of where I’m at right now. I’m really just focused on these last two games.”Fitzgerald, however, is still one of the NFL’s most productive receivers. Through 14 games, he’s first with 98 receptions, the fourth-most targeted wideout in the league and is 16th in the NFL with 949 yards.Gray wondered why Fitzgerald would even consider walking away from the game with a bit left in the tank.“I don’t play for the personal accolades or catches or yards,” Fitzgerald said. “I mean, those are all wonderful footnotes at the end of the day. Jim, you know, you’ve been around sports a long time, you play to win. When you’re sitting at home, watching other teams compete for a championship that you so dearly want, it puts a bitter, bitter taste in your mouth.“You’ll know how bad I hate sitting in the box with you.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories 0 Comments Share Larry Fitzgerald isn’t saying he’s retiring after the 2016 season.The Cardinals receiver is also not saying he will not be retiring.Following a 48-41 loss to the New Orleans Saints and a day after he offered a somewhat vague response about whether he will return in 2017, the Arizona star offered a follow-up to Jim Gray on Westwood One Radio.Is Fitzgerald, who is under contract through 2017, contemplating retirement after this year?

YouTube will soon start to apply “tougher treatment” to videos that aren’t illegal but do feature hate speech and violent extremism, as part of its ongoing clampdown on terrorist content.The video site said it will start to place videos in a “limited state” when they don’t violate YouTube policies but do contain “controversial religious or supremacist content.”“The videos will remain on YouTube behind an interstitial, won’t be recommended, won’t be monetised, and won’t have key features including comments, suggested videos, and likes,” said YouTube in a company blog post.“We’ll begin to roll this new treatment out to videos on desktop versions of YouTube in the coming weeks, and will bring it to mobile experiences soon thereafter. These new approaches entail significant new internal tools and processes, and will take time to fully implement.”The move follows YouTube’s recent implementation of new guidelines that has seen it take a harder line on hateful, demeaning and inappropriate content.YouTube said it is already seeing some positive progress, with its machine learning systems working faster and more effectively than before.“Over 75% of the videos we’ve removed for violent extremism over the past month were taken down before receiving a single human flag,” said YouTube.“The accuracy of our systems has improved dramatically due to our machine learning technology. While these tools aren’t perfect, and aren’t right for every setting, in many cases our systems have proven more accurate than humans at flagging videos that need to be removed.”Some 400 hours of content is uploaded to YouTube every minute. The site said that finding and taking action against violent extremist content “poses a significant challenge”, but said its initial use of machine learning has more than doubled both the number and the rate of videos it’s removed for violent extremism in the past month.YouTube attracted controversy earlier this year, and some advertisers pulled budget from the site, after it was revealed that, in some instances, ads appeared alongside extreme or inappropriate content.
