  Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick wants to return    Mon May 23, 01:27 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) wants to re-sign with the New York Jets. 'I would like to be back,' Fitzpatrick said. He's been in a three-month contract stalemate with the Jets.

Footballguys view: Things are at an impasse right now between Fitzpatrick and the Jets, but that could change quickly. Any other team with a QB need has already filled it, so Fitzpatrick has run out of options. He can either retire or sign a team-friendly deal with the Jets. At this point, it sounds like he doesn't want to retire so a return to the Jets makes the most sense.

  NFL | Ryan Fitzpatrick not retiring    Mon May 23, 12:48 PM

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) dispelled rumors that he was considering retirement Monday, May 23. 'I'm playing,' Fitzpatrick said. 'I'm playing football next year.'

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick is running out of options. The Jets could bring him back, but the price tag would likely be a lot lower than the veteran had hoped for. We think he winds up with the Jets as other QB-needy teams have already filled the positions.

  Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick deadline soon?    Thu May 19, 04:31 PM

The deadline for free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) could be sooner than expected. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport posits that the first legitimate deadline is when the Jets' organized team activities start Tuesday, May 24.

Footballguys view: The Jets aren't budging, no matter how much some in the media feel they should. GM Mike Maccagnan and coach Todd Bowles seem willing to wait and have Fitzpatrick come down on his requests or roll with Geno Smith, Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty. Unless some other team starts sniffing around Fitzpatrick, there's no urgency right now. Who will blink? We're thinking Fitzpatrick, unless there is an injury.

  Jets | Teammate expects Ryan Fitzpatrick back    Tue May 17, 09:55 PM

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is not close to a contract agreement with the New York Jets, but Jets WR Eric Decker said he expects Fitzpatrick to be the starting quarterback in the first regular season game.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick is a seasoned veteran, so he doesn't need every offseason rep with the Jets as he already knows the Chan Gailey system like the back of his hand. The Jets drafted Christian Hackenberg (Penn State) in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft, but he's more of a developmental prospect who should sit for a year if possible. Geno Smith and Bryce Petty are the only other QBs on the roster. The Jets are at a stalemate right now with Fitzpatrick, but that could quickly change as we get closer to training camp.

  Jets | Eric Decker talks Ryan Fitzpatrick    Tue May 17, 07:58 PM

New York Jets WR Eric Decker said the Jets need to be prepared to play without free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets). Decker does want New York to re-sign the veteran quarterback, but he's focused on the football team as a whole. 'All I can say is we have to move on without him right now because they are stuck where they are with the business decision,' Decker said. 'But, again, we have a job to do and that's to be the best football team, field the best football team, of who we have in the locker room right now.'

Footballguys view: The Jets WRs liked catching passes from Fitzpatrick because he has no fear throwing into coverage. The two sides are at an impasse right now, but that might change quickly as training camp draws near.

  NFL | Ryan Fitzpatrick could affect draft     Wed May 11, 07:31 PM

If free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is signed Thursday, May 12, or onward by a prospective team, then he will not count against that team's compensatory draft picks.

Footballguys view: The question is, who is the market for him? We know the Jets are holding fast and the rest of the league seems disinterested. His best scenario is if he and the Jets can come to terms as he is comfortable in the offense Chan Gailey runs.

  Jets | No urgency with Ryan Fitzpatrick     Tue May 10, 02:56 PM

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick's (Jets) status remains in limbo with the New York Jets. Owner Woody Johnson said there's no urgency to re-sign Fitzpatrick at this point with training camp still two months away.

Footballguys view: The team is just staying patient right now. Fitzpatrick already knows the Chan Gailey system, so he doesn't need to be present for installation this offseason. Things seem distant between the two sides now, but that could change quickly as training camp gets closer.

  Jets | New York could keep four quarterbacks    Tue May 3, 07:15 PM

New York Jets QBs Geno Smith, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg, and possibly free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) could all be on New York's roster when the 2016 regular season commences. General manager Mike Maccagnan said if it's in the best interest of the team then they will keep four quarterbacks. 'It's been done before,' Maccagnan said. 'To me, it's a position where you have to take some time to really invest, grow and develop players.'

Footballguys view: The Jets could have Fitzpatrick compete with Geno Smith for the starting job. They could then see if Petty could hold off Hackenberg for the third-string/developmental job. The loser of that battle could wind up on the team's practice squad. The talks with Fitzpatrick are at a standstill right now, but things could change quickly at any time.

  Jets | General manager excited for Geno Smith    Tue May 3, 04:31 PM

New York Jets QB Geno Smith could start for the Jets in 2016 if free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is not re-signed. That prospect has general manager Mike Maccagnan excited. 'Right now, Geno has been a starter for us, and actually played quite well prior to getting hurt last year, and was doing a good job in the offseason,' Maccagnan said. 'So we're kind of excited to see what Geno can do, coming back. And we feel good about that.'

Footballguys view: Is Maccagnan serious here? Smith gets to work under noted quarterback whisperer Chan Gailey for another season, so there may be a little bit of hope for him yet. However, Smith needs to prove that he can consistently make good decisions as a passer under pressure. A broken jaw last year (caused by a former teammate) knocked Smith out of the lineup where Ryan Fitzpatrick was able to take over and thrive as the starter.

  Jets | No talks between Jets, Ryan Fitzpatrick    Fri Apr 29, 09:32 PM

The last time free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and the New York Jets had any meaningful talks was 'weeks ago,' according to one source.

Footballguys view: As we thought. At this point, there's not going to be movement, as the Jets are firmly set in moving on. They certainly aren't going to add more to their offer.

  Jets | Christian Hackenberg should sit first year    Fri Apr 29, 09:01 PM

New York Jets QB Christian Hackenberg is expected to sit and grow in his first season in the NFL. If free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is re-signed, it could very well only be a one-year deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: He's going to have to wait because he's absolutely not ready now. As for Fitzpatrick, he has a choice to either retire as threatened or take the only offer he's had in what the Jets put out there. He would be a great fill in for the year, but his pride might be in the way.

  Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick may not play     Thu Apr 28, 04:30 PM

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) has told people he would rather not play football this season than play for the New York Jets under their latest contract offer.

Footballguys view: Well he'd better get his Lazy-Boy ready because nobody else has come knocking. Fitzpatrick has seen no interest even from the QB-desperate Broncos. We think the Jets might raise their offer from the reported $7 million to maybe $10, but it's clear Fitzpatrick wants more since nobody else is biting. The Jets seem Ok moving on without him, relying on a good defense, a solid run game and two very nice wide receivers.

  Jets | NYJ doing due diligence with Brian Hoyer    Fri Apr 22, 01:15 PM

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) is receiving some interest from the New York Jets, but Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan said the team is doing due diligence on Hoyer.

Footballguys view: Hoyer is being used by the Jets to perhaps soften the stance of free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick. Maccagnan also said talks to retain Fitzpatrick may take some time.

  Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick unlikely to sign soon    Mon Apr 18, 09:26 AM

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) isn't expected to re-sign with the New York Jets before the NFL Draft, barring a significant breakthrough. The draft begins Thursday, April 28.

Footballguys view: The Jets are playing hard to get here, but so is Fitzpatrick. The crazy money (see Sam Bradford, Eagles) thrown around earlier this offseason seems to have dried up. Fitzpatrick had a strong year last season as the Jets starter, but they will only bring him back for the right price. That price tag is likely to be much less than the $17.5 million annual salary Bradford got from the Eagles.

  Jets | No progress with Ryan Fitzpatrick    Thu Apr 14, 02:33 PM

The New York Jets haven't made any progress in an attempt to re-sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to owner Woody Johnson. Johnson also said it wasn't imperative that the team bring Fitzpatrick back. 'No, no. I think this is a big team. We've made our statements regarding Ryan Fitzpatrick well-known, and I'll stick with those that we've made,' Johnson said.

Footballguys view: Things are still at an impasse right now between the two sides. With the draft coming up, we could see the team making some moves to position themselves to select a rookie QB. Perhaps that will change things with Fitzpatrick as the Jets seem to be the only team interested in the veteran at this time.

  Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick deadline nearing?    Thu Mar 31, 07:25 PM

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) and the New York Jets still aren't close on a new deal. The Jets would like to get a deal done by April 18, when the first phase of their offseason program begins.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick is clinging to his number and the Jets are locked on their own. There has to be a significant gap here otherwise we assume the deal would be done, or at least close to it. Fitzpatrick knows this is his last big contract and the Jets know he is a short-term solution. He threw for more touchdowns than any Jets quarterback last season, but folded in the last few games, and he's getting on in years. So the Jets know spending a ton of money on him is foolish. It could make the draft very interesting if the deal never happens. Fitzpatrick would be a solid No. 2 QB in fantasy, but he is always in danger of exploding, so you'd have to have another choice. We don't know where he will land if not with the Jets - there seems to be little interest in him from anyone else at any price.

  Jets | New York interested in Josh McCown    Wed Mar 23, 03:09 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Josh McCown has drawn interest from the New York Jets, who are still in limbo with free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets). The Jets could wait until McCown is released to pursue him, but that may not be for another few weeks.

Footballguys view: McCown could be just as valuable for fantasy as Ryan Fitzpatrick was last year if he's the starter for the Jets. The combination of quality receivers and a willingness to run would make him a top streaming QB option.

  Broncos | Denver not rushing QB decision    Wed Mar 23, 01:03 PM

Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said the Broncos are not in a rush to add another quarterback this offseason. Kubiak said QB Mark Sanchez will learn the team's offense quickly because of his familiarity with the verbiage during his days in college, and Sanchez has been at the team facility offseason since he signed. Free-agent QBs Robert Griffin III (Redskins) and Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) are options, as well as trading for San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer or Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon.

Footballguys view: If this team can win a Super Bowl with one foot in the grave Peyton Manning, they shouldn't feel rushed or pressured into any quarterback decisions. They can at least return to the playoffs with Sanchez as long as the defense continues its reign. This is little solace to anyone depending on Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas in fantasy leagues.

  Jets | No rush in Ryan Fitzpatrick talks    Mon Mar 21, 07:55 PM

The New York Jets have no sense of urgency in contract talks to re-sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to owner Woody Johnson.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick could miss the entire offseason program because of his familiarity with offensive coordinator Chan Gailey's offense. General manager Mike Maccagnan said QB Geno Smith is a 'definite possibility' as a replacement if Fitzpatrick doesn't return.

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is a player that New York Jets owner Woody Johnson wants to return. Johnson said he is optimistic that the team will be able to reach an agreement with Fitzpatrick.

Footballguys view: We're optimistic something happens here. Fitzpatrick has played the best football of his career under OC Chan Gailey. The team should keep him around, but the price tag has to be right.

  Jets | Geno Smith ready to lead team?    Sun Mar 20, 07:56 PM

New York Jets QB Geno Smith is capable of leading the franchise if free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick doesn't re-sign, according to free-agent OG Willie Colon. 'I think he's taken on everything,' said Colon. 'I think he's ready to rise. I still have confidence in him. I think with the pieces we have around him, and continue to put around him, he can be successful. I honestly believe that. I think Geno's a good quarterback.'

Footballguys view: Folks need to remember that Smith was the lead QB until getting his jaw broken by a former teammate. That allowed the door to be opened for Ryan Fitzpatrick. Smith may need a fresh start somewhere else after his career with the Jets has been held back by inconsistent play.

  Jets | Nothing new with NYJ, Ryan Fitzpatrick    Thu Mar 17, 08:41 PM

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) has not made any progress in contract talks with the New York Jets, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Same as it ever was. Fitzpatrick may want Osweiler/Bradford money, but he's unlikely to get that at this point. We think the Jets find a way to keep him around because he's a good fit in Chan Gailey's system...and the other QBs out there aren't great options.

The New York Jets are not close to re-signing QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, and they are offering 'high-end backup, low-end starter' money, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.

Footballguys view: That's what Fitzpatrick is. It may take some time, but we have a feeling the two sides should come together on a new deal. Fitzpatrick was able to have career-best numbers for the Jets in 2015 under OC Chan Gailey.

  Broncos | Denver interested in Ryan Fitzpatrick    Sun Mar 13, 12:41 PM

The Denver Broncos have had preliminary discusssions with the representatives for free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets), although the club is unwilling to meet his current salary demands, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: We know the Broncos QB play wasn't great last year as Peyton Manning was on his last leg and Brock Osweiler learned the ropes. However, adding Fitzpatrick wouldn't be that much of an upgrade. The team has seemingly been in scramble mode since Osweiler chose to sign with the Texans. With a trade for Mark Sanchez, we'd prefer if the Broncos focused on a young passer with a premium pick in the 2016 NFL draft. Stay tuned.

The New York Jets are still intent on re-signing QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, and their offer remains on the table. However, the Jets are now considering all options.

Footballguys view: We're shocked something hasn't happened yet. Fitzpatrick has worked well with OC Chan Gailey, and we feel the Jets are his best spot. He should stay with the Jets, but the contract negotiations are not close at this time.

  Broncos | Denver has talked to Ryan Fitzpatrick     Thu Mar 10, 06:41 PM

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) has been contacted by the Denver Broncos. The Broncos could pursue Fitzpatrick as a backup plan if they are unable to trade for San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick.

Footballguys view: Moves and counter moves as the Broncos perhaps try to force the Niners into lowering their asking price while Fitzpatrick tries to make the Jets raise their offer. The Niners can afford to pass on the trade and New York seems content to enter the Geno Smith Era again though, so this could really happen. Fitzpatrick isn't the long term answer for the Broncos but this is a win-now team and he could be a solid fit. If the defense can perform like it did last season, and Demaryius Thomas holds onto his passes, Fitzpatrick might be a good one or two year patch and do enough to make a run in the playoffs.

  Jets | NYJ have modest offer to Ryan Fitzpatrick    Thu Mar 10, 05:26 PM

The New York Jets' offer to free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is a little better than the three-year, $21 million deal that the Philadelphia Eagles gave QB Chase Daniel, according to NFL Media's Albert Breer. The knowledge that Fitzpatrick hasn't had much success outside of New York could lead them to lower the price tag.

Footballguys view: They'll hold fast. While some might question the wisdom of playing this game, the Jets have to be careful with money and know Fitzpatrick is not the future under center. Reports say they are fine going ahead with Geno Smith. If the Broncos acquire Colin Kaepernick or Robert Griffin III, that leaves the Jets and Browns and we're not sure the Browns will go retread yet again. The Jets hold some leverage here and we don't expect them to give it up.

  Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick, Jets far apart in talks    Thu Mar 10, 12:26 PM

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) is far apart in contract talks with the New York Jets, and he's surveying offers on the free-agent market.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick saw Brock Osweiler's deal and said "I have to get me one of those" but clearly the Jets are not biting. While he is more proven than Osweiler, Fitzpatrick is older and has less upside. There's no way the Jets want to pay him the $18 million per year Osweiler fetched on the open market. They will continue to play hardball, but in this game of chicken, their backup is Geno Smith, Bryce Petty or a trade for Brian Hoyer. All of which is scary.

  Jets | New York could draft quarterback    Sun Feb 21, 02:19 PM

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick could have more depth behind him after the NFL Draft. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News said it would not be surprising if the Jets selected a quarterback at some point in the draft, adding that they wouldn't hesitate to draft a quarterback with their No. 20 overall pick if they were strongly convicted with someone still on the board.

Footballguys view: Geno Smith didn't turn out to be the franchise QB the Jets had hoped for, so they're going to continue looking for a long-term answer. With the 20th pick, perhaps somebody like Paxton Lynch (Memphis) or Connor Cook (Michigan State) would still be on the board.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick and the Jets are expected to discuss a contract extension in the coming weeks.

New York Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets are expected to discuss a contract extension in the coming weeks.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick may not be the quarterback of the future with the Jets, but it just makes sense to keep him around as a placeholder while the team tries to find a young franchise quarterback. OC Chan Gailey has been able to get the best out of Fitzpatrick during their time together with the Jets, just like they did with the Bills years ago. Re-signing Fitzpatrick is the biggest no-brainer of all the Jets offseason decisions.

New York Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan said he's 'like very much' to re-sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick this offseason.

Footballguys view: After the season he had--even with the end being ugly--Fitzpatrick seemed to have the light go on. How much is the big question as Fitzpatrick has earned a big payday before and then fell apart. The Jets have to be cautious here but won't want to screw up an offense that was really effective when healthy. By the same point, there is a lot of talent on the defense they need to pay as well.

New York Jets impending free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick said he hopes to re-sign with the Jets this offseason.

Footballguys view: Fitzpatrick was a dud with the Jets season on the line. He still should command a good salary on the open market and likely enter next season as the team's starter. His career has been revived with Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, and Chan Gailey on his side.
