Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets have finally agreed to a deal, per multiple reports. The disgruntled quarterback will make $12 million on a one-year deal.
Both sides more or less got what they wanted out of this deal. Fitzpatrick will make legit starter money, four months after he was offended that the Jets only offered him a salary commensurate to a backup QB like Chase Daniel. The Jets don’t have to start Geno Smith with a straight face, and they’re not tied to the 33-year-old Fitzpatrick for more than a season. A Song Of Ice And Fire readers get the relief of not having George R.R. Martin preoccupied with blogging about Smith’s incompetencies.
