Jets voided the last year of Ryan Fitzpatrick's contract, making him a free agent.
Fitzpatrick technically signed a two-year deal last offseason, but language in the contract allowed the team to void the second year five days after the Super Bowl. Because his $10 million signing bonus was spread out over two years, voiding Fitzpatrick's deal will result in $5 million in dead money against the Jets' 2017 salary cap. The 34-year-old was one of the worst quarterbacks in football in 2016 but should be able to land a backup gig. Feb 11 - 10:14 AM

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 20-of-30 passes for 210 yards and two touchdowns and rushed once for no gain Sunday in the Jets' Week 17 win over the Bills.

The Jets were a complete disaster this year and Fitzpatrick was one of the biggest reasons why. He was one of the league’s worst quarterbacks, consistently making poor decisions by forcing needlessly difficult passes (usually to Brandon Marshall) into tight coverage. Fitzpatrick threw the second-most interceptions in the league, an astounding feat considering how many times he was benched this year. It speaks volumes about Fitzpatrick’s ineptitude that Bryce Petty was considered a vastly better option down the stretch. Fitzpatrick should be able to land a backup gig in free agency but his days of being an NFL starting quarterback are over.

Ryan Fitzpatrick doesn't expect to be back with the Jets next season.

Wonder where he got that impression from. Fitzpatrick has been benched multiple times this year and is only starting Week 17 because Bryce Petty (shoulder) is hurt. He laughably held out for more money this offseason before finally caving and agreeing to a one-year, $12 million deal just before training camp. Fitzpatrick was never the answer in East Rutherford and the Jets seem to realize that now. Wherever Fitzpatrick goes next, he'll have to settle for clipboard duty.

Jets coach Todd Bowles confirmed Ryan Fitzpatrick will start Week 17 against the Bills.

It, of course, makes no sense to start Fitzpatrick considering he will not be with the team next season and Christian Hackenberg is on the bench, but even in a game featuring E.J. Manuel, the Jets are worried about how terrible their wasted second-round pick will look. There is no reason to trust any Jet except Bilal Powell for Week 17 fantasy purposes.

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed eight-of-21 passes for 136 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions while adding one rush for three yards Saturday in the Jets' Week 16 loss to the Patriots.

Fitzpatrick was his usual brand of bad in the Jets’ latest embarrassment. Playing in relief of an injured Bryce Petty, Fitzpatrick spent the final two-and-a-half quarters reminding the Jets of why they benched him in the first place. Many of his passes were begging to be intercepted, and two of them were. Fitzpatrick’s receivers did him no favors by dropping at least a handful of catchable balls. Next week against the Bills will likely be his final game in a Jets uniform. Whether he starts or not will depend on the health of Petty’s shoulder.

Ryan Fitzpatrick has been benched.

Bryce Petty will start the final four games of the season after coming on in relief of "FitzMagic" on Monday evening. It appears second-rounder Christian Hackenberg will be the next man up if Petty gets injured. Fitzpatrick was legitimately good in 2015, but reverted to his old ways this season, playing an absurd brand of streetball that resulted in far too many turnovers. Fitz thinks he's Brett Favre, but he's really a poor man's Chad Pennington. Now 34, Fitz should be a useful backup/spot starter for someone in 2017, but it's extremely unlikely he will enter Week 1 with a starting job.

Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched after completing 5-of-12 passes for 81 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in the first half Week 13 against the Colts.

Dreadful. The Jets were getting blasted 24-3 at halftime, and the Colts scored another touchdown on the first possession of the third quarter to make it 31-3 before Bryce Petty came into the game to a round of applause. The Jets went three-and-out on their first two possessions of the game, and Fitzpatrick threw a terrible pick into double-coverage just before halftime. Well on their way to 3-9, the Jets may as well give Petty the reins the remainder of the year.
Mon, Dec 5, 2016 10:22:00 PM

Coach Todd Bowles confirmed Monday that Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the Jets' starting quarterback for Week 13 against the Colts.

Bowles went as far as to call it a "no-brainer" and say there was "no debate" about Fitzpatrick retaining his starting role. Although he committed a sack-fumble to end Sunday's game, Fitzpatrick turned in one of his best performances of the season against the Patriots, throwing for 269 yards and two touchdowns. He'll be a two-quarterback-league option Monday night against Indy.
Mon, Nov 28, 2016 03:46:00 PM

Jets coach Todd Bowles declined to name a starting quarterback following the team's Week 12 loss to the Patriots.

"I'll evaluate everything this week going forward," Bowles said. "I'm not going to make a decision today, or a rash decision one way or another." Ryan Fitzpatrick had one of his best games of the season against the Patriots, but he lost a costly fumble late in the close game. Fitzpatrick clearly gives the Jets their best chance to win, but that does not matter much with the playoffs out of reach. New York needs to see what they have in Bryce Petty, and now is as good a time as any. If Fitzpatrick does keep the starting job, he will be an interesting streaming option against the Colts.

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 22-of-32 passes for 269 yards with two touchdowns and one lost fumble and rushed twice for one yard Sunday in the Jets' Week 12 loss to the Patriots.

He was sacked once for no loss. Fitzpatrick outplayed Tom Brady for most of the day on Sunday but still came up a bit short. Trailing by five with under two minutes to go, Fitzpatrick coughed up a costly fumble that essentially clinched the win for New England. Fitzpatrick played conservatively on Sunday, mostly sticking to checkdowns and underneath passes. His first touchdown came on a one-yard strike to Brandon Marshall on the first play of the second quarter. Fitzpatrick later connected with Quincy Enunwa for a 21-yard score in the fourth quarter. Officials initially ruled Enunwa out of bounds but it was overturned and called a touchdown on review. Fitzpatrick will be a solid QB2 and a potential streaming option next week against the Colts.

Ryan Fitzpatrick has been named the Jets' Week 12 starter at quarterback.

"He's healthy," coach Todd Bowles enthusiastically said. "He's been our starter. ... We can do more things with him. I don't give away jobs." The reality is, Fitz wouldn't be starting against the Patriots if either Bryce Petty or Christian Hackenberg had done anything positive on the practice field. Fitz has been a perpetual-turnover machine, but Gang Green has rightly surmised he gives the team its best chance of not getting completely embarrassed. Fitz will be a passable low-end QB2 against the Pats' leaky defense.
Mon, Nov 21, 2016 01:32:00 PM

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan said coach Todd Bowles has "final say" on naming a starting quarterback.

"The decision is Todd's and you have to weigh a lot of different things," said Maccagnan. "I don't think it's necessarily like 'let's just play the young guys and see what happens.' It's a decision we don't take lightly." The Jets are going nowhere with Ryan Fitzpatrick, but Bryce Petty didn't show anything in his Week 10 start. Christian Hackenberg also isn't expected to be an option. The Jets don't have much to gain from staying with Fitzpatrick, but there's a good chance their 2017 quarterback isn't on their roster.

Jets coach Todd Bowles declined to name a starting quarterback on Monday.

The Jets are on their bye and have a week to get the position resolved, although they don’t have any good options. Ryan Fitzpatrick has been ineffective all season and is now dealing with an MCL sprain, while Bryce Petty was not an upgrade in Sunday’s loss to the Rams. Bowles did confirm that rookie Christian Hackenberg isn't an option. Regardless of who’s been under center, the Jets’ offense has been and will stay doomed.
Mon, Nov 14, 2016 04:24:00 PM

Ryan Fitzatrick is active for Week 10 against the Rams, but he is coming off the bench behind Bryce Petty.

The Jets' Week 10 inactives are QB Christian Hackenberg, OT Brandon Shell, C Nick Mangold, LB Josh Martin, WR Devin Smith, CB Marcus Williams, and LB Bruce Carter against Los Angeles.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 11:40:00 AM

Ryan Fitzpatrick (knee, questionable) will not start Sunday's Week 10 game against the Rams.

All week it looked like Fitzpatrick would be the starter after splitting practice reps with Bryce Petty. Instead, it will be Petty under center in Week 10. There's no guarantee Fitzpatrick will be the starter when the Jets return from their upcoming bye week. He's already been benched once for Geno Smith and hasn't looked sharp since regaining the starting job. Sunday will be Petty's first NFL start.
