When Schefter has a league source saying something, it's nearly always right.
We better get used to Ryan Fitzpatrick as the Jets QB
Texans are trading QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to the New York Jets for a late-round conditional draft pick, per a league source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 11, 2015
Ryan Fitzpatrick is due to make $3.25 million this season and will compete with Geno Smith for the starting quarterback position. He has a familiarity with Chan Gailey and his offense and he will have every chance to be a success with the likes of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker as his receivers.
This in my opinion is a positive move for the Jets. Fitzpatrick isn't a franchise guy, but he throws more touchdowns than he does interceptions and can move the ball through the air. We traded for him to ensure we got him at a good price and it;s only a one year deal in essence.
Texans get conditional 7 that can become 6th with playtime for Fitzpatrick.— John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL) March 11, 2015
