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.

Our 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.'

Our 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.

Our 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.

Our 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.'

Our 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.
