Jets GM Mike Maccagnan plans to open talks with free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick "in the near future."
"We have time, obviously, before free agency," Maccagnan said. "Obviously, myself, everybody in the organization feels very strongly about this." Fitzpatrick had a career year in 2015, passing for 3,905 yards with a 31:15 TD/INT ratio. The Star-Ledger expects him to land a three-year deal in the $7 million AAV range. Jan 22 - 7:11 PM

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan confirmed Thursday that he would like to re-sign impending free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick.

This surprises exactly no one, as Fitzpatrick's career 2015 guided the Jets to within a whisker of the playoffs. With Geno Smith a failed prospect and this year's quarterback class even more riddled with questions than usual, Fitz is all but guaranteed of returning to New York. Reporter Rich Cimini expects a deal to be struck before free agency. The Jets, who are expected to use the franchise tag on Mo Wilkerson, would be in great danger of losing Fitzpatrick if he reached the open market. A quarterback-starved league would likely be willing to overpay.
Jan 14 - 10:10 PM

Coach Todd Bowles reiterated the Jets' desire to re-sign free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick on Monday.

"We want him back," said Bowles. Fitzpatrick had the best season of his career in his reunion with OC Chan Gailey, while Geno Smith hasn't remotely shown franchise-quarterback skills and rising sophomore Bryce Petty is a raw fourth-round pick. It would be a shock if Fitzpatrick were allowed to leave The Big Apple.
Jan 4 - 1:41 PM

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 16-of-37 passes for 181 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions in the Jets' Week 17 loss to the Bills.

The Jets ran out of magic in their season finale, falling to Rex Ryan's Buffalo team 22-17. They are now out of the playoffs as Pittsburgh held off Cleveland, so the Steelers will advance. Although Fitzpatrick saved his worst game for Week 17, all in all he had an excellent debut year with Gang Green, compiling a 31:15 TD-to-INT ratio and more often than not producing as a legitimate QB1 in fantasy. Some regression seems likely for Fitzpatrick in 2016, but he plays in a quarterback-friendly offense with quarterback-friendly receivers in Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall, who will both be back. Fitzpatrick will be a solid late-round QB target in 2016 fantasy drafts.

Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb, elbow, back) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Fitz will be ready to go for New York's must-win game against the Bills. He's a near lock for multiple touchdowns.

Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb, elbow, back) downplayed his limited practice on Wednesday.

"I didn't participate in all the plays, so they had to put me on [the injury report]," Fitzpatrick said. "It's nothing really to be concerned about." Coach Todd Bowles shared Fitzpatrick's optimism, saying the injuries are "nothing serious." Fitzpatrick will start against Buffalo and is a great play against a banged-up secondary.

Ryan Fitzpatrick (thumb, elbow, back) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Fitzpatrick is dealing with minor injuries, but they won't impact his status. He's a top-12 play for Week 17.
Wed, Dec 30, 2015 05:44:00 PM

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 26-of-41 passes for 296 yards and three touchdowns in the Jets' 26-20, Week 16 overtime win over the Patriots.

The win, coupled with the Steelers' loss, means the Jets can clinch a playoff berth with a Week 17 victory over the Bills. Fitzpatrick was crisp all afternoon, spreading the ball around while hitting a number of deep balls. He could have had an even bigger day if not for a few ducks, and multiple Quincy Enunwa errors on long passes. Fitz will be a top 10-12 play against the Bills' collapsed defense.

ESPN's Rich Cimini was told by a prominent agent that Ryan Fitzpatrick could command a $12 million annual salary this offseason.

He's in the last year of a two-year contract. Fitzpatrick's salary is expected to fall somewhere in the $10-12 million range, a noticeable increase from the $3.25 million he's making this season. A $12 million salary would only rank 20th among quarterbacks. Considering how thin the quarterback market is, the Jets would be wise to lock Fitzpatrick up for a few more seasons.

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 26-of-39 passes for 299 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Jets' Week 15 win over the Cowboys.

He rushed five times for 13 yards. Inaccurate most of the night and unable to find a rhythm in the first three frames, Fitzpatrick's worst miscue occurred on a third-quarter pass where he was intercepted by Cowboys CB Terrance Mitchell just after a Kellen Moore end-zone pick. The interception was the first by a Dallas cornerback all season, and Fitzpatrick's first pick in 147 pass attempts. Fitzpatrick came through in the clutch, however, hitting a wide-open Kenbrell Thompkins for a 43-yard gain with less than a minute remaining to set up Randy Bullock's game-winning, 40-yard field goal. Fitzpatrick's touchdown went to Eric Decker from three yards out on a rub route. The Jets host the Patriots next. Fitzpatrick will be a mid-range to high-end fantasy QB2 play in that game.

Contract-year QB Ryan Fitzpatrick said he'd "love to be back" with the Jets in 2016.

Coach Todd Bowles and Brandon Marshall also recently expressed their desire to see Fitzpatrick re-signed. The 33-year-old already has a career-high 25 touchdown passes, and has the 8-5 Jets on the verge of the playoffs. The quarterback market is always weak, so Fitzpatrick would have lots of suitors if he hit free agency. Ultimately, we'd be shocked if Gang Green let FitzMagic walk.

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 21-of-36 passes for 263 yards and three touchdowns in the Jets' Week 14 win over the Titans

Fitzpatrick did all his damage early, throwing for 197 yards and all three touchdowns in the first half. The first touchdown was an easy toss to a wide open Eric Decker, and Fitzpatrick added a second score on a 16-yard catch-and-run from Bilal Powell. His third touchdown was the easiest of the day. The Titans decided not to cover Brandon Marshall late in the first half. Fitzpatrick soft tossed him the ball immediately after the snap, and Marshall sprinted down the sideline for a 69-yard score. The game was basically over at that point. Fitzpatrick has been a borderline QB1 over the last three weeks and will remain in the streaming conversation next Saturday against the Cowboys.

Coach Todd Bowles said he "definitely" wants to re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The Jets have yet to open talks with Fitzpatrick, but the sides have mutual interest. Fitzpatrick has shown full command of OC Chan Gailey's scheme, averaging 239 YPG with a 22:11 TD/INT ratio through 12 games. He's made a strong case to return as the starter for at least one more season. Fitzpatrick should command a deal in excess of Josh McCown's three-year, $14 million contract.

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 36-of-50 passes for 390 yards with two touchdowns and rushed five times for 22 yards in the Jets' Week 13 win over the Giants.

The 390 yards were Fitzpatrick’s most since Week 15 of the 2013 campaign when he shredded Arizona for 402 yards on 36-of-58 passing. Fitzpatrick was under siege in the first half but the offensive line held its own after halftime, allowing him to throw for 221 yards in the second half and overtime. Fitzpatrick was consistently on the same page with receivers Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker and did a nice job setting up screens for Bilal Powell. He was excellent in play-action and extended the game with a terrific 15-yard scramble in the fourth quarter. Having a stable quarterback has done wonders for the Jets, who are 7-5 and leading the AFC Wild Card chase. Fitzpatrick will get one of his former teams, the Titans, in Week 14.

Ryan Fitzpatrick (left thumb) is practicing in full for Week 13.

Fitzpatrick appears over his thumb issue after shredding the Dolphins last Sunday. He has another inviting matchup for Week 13 in the Giants, and is a high-end QB2.
