The New York Jets have offered free agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick more than $7-8 million per year, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.
It's not clear whether this offer has been made recently, or if that amount had been the standing figure.
The Jets and Fitzpatrick have been far apart in contract negotitations all offseason. Fitzpatrick is reportedly seeking something comparable to what other NFL starters (Sam Bradford, Brock Osweiler) have gotten this offseason, while the Jets offer has been much lower.
The Jets have a plan for Fitzpatrick, according to Dom Cosentino of NJ.com. This plan includes placing a value on his worth, given his age (33), his career arc, and whatever their long-term plan is at quarterback.
