Report: Jets Have Made QB Ryan Fitzpatrick Multiple Offers to Choose From

The Jets have given veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick multiple offers with the hope of bringing back their undisputed leader from a year ago before the start of training camp this week, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

The Jets’ three-year, $24 million offer (which is below market value but includes $15 million in guarantees) has dominated the conversation for the better part of two months, but the organization has presented at least one other option for Fitzpatrick, whose franchise-record 31 touchdowns helped Todd Bowles to 10 wins in his rookie season.

The Jets would almost certainly prefer a one-year, $8 million pact (to keep in line with the $8 million/year average in their well-publicized three-year offer), but that’s simply insulting given Fitzpatrick’s true value to this team.

Although the organization might be amenable to a one-year deal with a base value of $8 million that includes incentives that would push the max value to $12 million, that still isn’t fair for a player that gives the Jets the best chance to snap a five-year playoff drought.
