Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians had plenty of success at his last gig, leading the Arizona Cardinals to multiple playoff berths. He also had the pleasure of coaching one of the best wide receivers in NFL history, Larry Fitzgerald.

But Arians' time coaching Fitzgerald wasn't always sunshine and rainbows. It had one painful moment in particular, but unsurprisingly, Fitzgerald made it right.

Arians recently told a story of Fitzgerald injuring him in a post-game celebration, but the future Hall of Famer eventually made it up to him (via team writer Darren Urban):

Fitzgerald has long been known as one of the good guys in the league, so this kind of gesture isn't exactly surprising. Still, it's proof that while Fitzgerald is one of the best players in league history, he's also one of the best humans to ever put on an NFL jersey.

Fitzgerald and Arians will reunite Sunday when the Bucs host the Cardinals at Raymond James Stadium.

Also, you're welcome to injure my shoulder anytime, Larry.
