Report: Ryan Fitzpatrick agrees to one-year deal with Jets

After a long dispute in the off-season, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has signed a one-year deal worth $12 million with the New York Jets, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The deal also reportedly includes $3 million in incentives, which could make the deal worth $15 million, according to Schefter.

Fitzpatrick is coming off a season in which he set the franchise record with 31 touchdown passes last year and collected 3,905 yards. He led the team to a 10–6 record, which was the best since 2010.

Wideout Brandon Marshall, who recently revealed that Fitzpatrick had halted communication with him, met with the veteran signalcaller on Monday night in Chicago.

The Jets reportedly made several offers to Fitzpatrick after he chose not to take a three-year, $24 million deal. The team still have Geno Smith under contract and an added rookie Christian Hackenberg in the second round of the NFL draft. Bryce Petty is also listed as a backup.
