Agreed. If he doesn't take that deal, I'd move on with Geno. Fact is, Fitz isn't going to find a better offer anywhere else...

Maybe the best guess is a $6m signing bonus spread over 3 years and only his $6m salary in year 1 fully guaranteed.If the stories about him been more worried about how much he is due in year 2 or 3 then that wont really effect the jets cap this year but do they want to committ to spending down the line on a guy when they spent a high draft pick on that position a few weeks back.

That seems to be the speculation. $8m cap hit year each year. Only the bonus and year 1 salary is guaranteed. Years 2&3 seem the sticking point. Not sure he's worth that if I'm honest.

Means it's essentially a 2yr deal then, as cutting him after year 1 means a dead money cap hit of over 7m. We have a lot of space next year, but that's a lot to eat. Also reports coming out - its Manish Mehta so take it with a huge cautionary note - that Fitz is unhappy that the offer details have leaked and may choose to go elsewhere. I don't really know where else there is to go though.

guess Fitzpatrick is waiting on any injuries,the idea he will get $15m any where alse is never going to happen but maybe playing the contract holdout through the media maybe makes it ever harder for him to accept the offer unless the jets come back with a better deal.

Richardson 1 game suspension. A bit fortunate there.

Yeah, think we dodged a bullet there. Especially considering some of the other suspensions that were handed out yesterday...

Two weeks till camp opens. Have to think there is some sort of quiet deadline for the start of camp, we should push ahead with Geno as starter if Fitz hasn't signed by then.
