Mainejet Posted February 13, 2016 Share Posted February 13, 2016 I don't believe people truly understand what's going on here. This isn't a simple matter of the Jets giving Fitz what he wants. Far from it actually. The Jets want to resign him that's for sure. But Fitz is not useful with many other teams. Fitz is MBM. MBM stands for Made By Marshall. Without Brandon Marshall, Ryan Fitzpatrick reverts back to the Ryan Fitzpatrick of old. The journeyman that always was a turnover machine. He reverts back to his Buffalo days. Ryan Fitzpatrick MUST have weapons around him in order to be successful. Fitz could always count on Marshall being open even when he was double covered. Fitz just threw it up high and Marshall would jump up and grab it. Ryan Fitzpatrick NEEDS to stay with the NYJ. The NYJ actually have leverage because they have an excellent WR combo. A combo that for the first time in Fitz 11 year career, he can work with him. They have made each other better players. Now, Ryan Fitzpatrick might a have a few teams willing to pay him to come their way, but he knows if he doesn't have a great compliment of weapons he's ultimately going to fail and he won't collect on most of the money in that contract. If I'm the Jets I sign him Fitz for about 6 or 7 million with incentives to get him up to as much as 8.5 million. Team escalators, get into the playoffs you get this bonus and so on right up to and including winning the SB. As much as the Jets need Fitz in the interim, Fitz NEEDS the Jets. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
