Ryan Fitzpatrick's renaissance behind center will bring him back to the AFC East.
The QB signed a two-year, $11-million deal with Miami on Sunday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter and other reports. Fitzpatrick quarterbacked the Jets for two seasons in 2015 and 2016 before heading to Tampa Bay for two years.
His new contract, though, gives him the chance to face his old team twice a year. It will be his third go-around in the division; he played four seasons in Buffalo.
The contract contains built-in incentives that could increase the deal to between $17-20 million.
Miami traded former starter Ryan Tannehill to the Titans over the weekend, creating the void at quarterback. By signing Fitzpatrick, the team has a short-term answer at the position before addressing it long-term in either this year's NFL Draft or next.
Schefter added to his reporting that the Dolphins have eyes on Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who will be eligible in the 2020 Draft.
