Jets To Send 6th Round Pick To Houston For Fitzpatrick

It's a small price to pay

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Jets will send their 2016 6th round selection to Houston for Ryan Fitzpatrick instead of the 7th round pick that was already reported, according to Adam Schefter. This is due to Ryan Fitzpatrick having played in 70% of the Jets offensive plays in 2015. So if you're keeping count, the Jets have their 7th round pick back, but they now lose a 6th round pick to Houston.

It's a small price to pay for a Quarterback who's on the cusp of breaking the single season Jets record for passing touchdowns (29), which is currently held by Vinny Testaverde.

The Jets traded their 5th round pick in 2015 for wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who they picked up from the Bears. That combination has propelled the Jets to the brink of a play-off spot.

Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown 25 touchdowns to just 11 interceptions while completing 60% of his passes. 11 of those 25 touchdowns have landed in the hands of Brandon Marshall, who can make a case to be team MVP in 2015.

I don't think the Jets are too upset that they have to send a 6th round pick to Houston due to the teams success.
