  • Fitzpatrick completed seven of 11 passes for 55 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Saturday's 13-9 preseason loss to the Browns. Jameis Winston played through the first series of the second half, leaving Fitzpatrick with a modest amount of playing time. The veteran was in a fairly heated battle with Ryan Griffin for the No. 2 quarterback job, but the latter's shoulder injury in the preseason opener against the Bengals essentially clinched the job for Fitzpatrick. Undrafted free agent Sefo Liufau should see the majority of snaps in Thursday's exhibition finale against the Redskins as per Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, but Fitzpatrick may start the game and play at least one series.

  • Fitzpatrick improved his command of the Bucs offense as training camp unfolded, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. There really wasn't doubt that the cerebral veteran would adjust to the new playbook, but there's apparently been a marked difference as training camp has unfolded. Fitzpatrick has been exhibiting the telltale signs of an improved grasp of the system, namely, consistently quicker releases and better timing with his receivers. While the Bucs naturally would prefer not have to see Fitzpatrick take a snap this season -- as that would likely only come to pass in the event of a Jameis Winston injury -- it's imperative to have a backup capable of stepping in and keeping the offense functional, especially for a team with lofty expectations.

  • Fitzpatrick completed six of 13 passes for 45 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in Friday's 23-12 preseason loss to the Bengals. He also gained 15 yards and scored a touchdown on two rushes. Fitzpatrick entered the contest as the second quarterback, taking over for starter Jameis Winston on the third series. While he was generally lackluster through the air, the veteran used his legs to scamper into the end zone from six yards out with 2:51 remaining in the first half. Despite the generally tepid effort, the 34-year-old signal caller is undeniably in a position to benefit from the shoulder injury that fellow backup Ryan Griffin suffered in Friday's contest, and accordingly, he re-entered the game following the latter's exit.

  • Fitzpatrick signed with the Buccaneers on Friday. Fitzpatrick's deal is for one year and worth $3 million, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. His signing comes after Mike Glennon joined the Bears earlier this offseason, leaving a vacancy behind Jameis Winston in the Bucs' quarterback ranks. Entering his 13th season, Fitzpatrick boasts plenty of starting experience, but after a disastrous 2016 campaign that included 12 touchdowns against 17 interceptions for the Jets, the 34-year-old seems likely to be a backup for the remainder of his career.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick: Doesn't want to retire
    By RotoWire Staff

    Fitzpatrick wants to continue his playing career, Newsday's Gary Myers reports. Released by the Jets after an ugly 2016 season, Fitzpatrick considered retiring but has ultimately decided to play another year. He admits he hasn't received an offer through the first month-and-a-half of free agency, but he expects to draw some interest after the NFL Draft. Coming off a season in which he completed only 56.6 percent of his passes while posting a 3-8 record as a starter, the 34-year-old Fitzpatrick may have to settle for a backup job if he wants to continue his career.
