While the world continues to buzz about a potential resolution to the Colin Kaepernick situation, little is being said about a 10-win quarterback who remains on the open market.
It's been mostly quiet regarding Ryan Fitzpatrick for weeks. Usually a month after free agency opens, the biggest fish have found homes. With a scarcity of quarterbacks, that the 33-year-old veteran remains on the open market is telling.
Asked on Tuesday night if he thought Fitzpatrick would return, Marshall replied: "He better be," via Newsday.
At the moment, Fitzpatrick wants to be paid the going rate for starter-level quarterbacks. The cap-strapped Jets are holding firm on an offer that exemplifies a replacement-level signal-caller, which Fitzpatrick has been for the balance of his 11-year career -- even if he thrived last season under Chan Gailey.
There is little separating Fitzpatrick and the likes of Josh McCown. Yet, would the Jets really considering harpooning what was their best offense in years?
