Ryan Fitzpatrick: Has contract voided
The Jets have voided Fitzpatrick's contract, Newsday reports.
Fitzpatrick more or less held the Jets hostage last offseason, inking a two-year contract on July 27, with only the first season guaranteed. Immediately confirmed as the starting quarterback over Geno Smith, Fitzpatrick was unable to uphold his standard from 2015. One factor in Fitzpatrick's dismal play was Eric Decker's season-ending torn rotator cuff, but with weapons like Brandon Marshall (hip) and Matt Forte (knee) on his side, the graybeard signal-caller was unable to display a modicum of consistency. The first stumbling block was a six-interception performance in Week 2, but Fitzpatrick was also benched twice for the likes of Smith (in Week 7 before the latter suffered a torn ACL in that game) and rookie Bryce Petty (at halftime in Week 13). Poised to hit the free-agent market on March 9, the best-case scenario for Fitzpatrick may be bridging the gap to a younger QB for a season or two.
