Tampa Bay needed a backup for Winston after his former backup, Mike Glennon, signed with Chicago in the offseason for three years and $43.5 million.
Fitzpatrick, 34 will backup starter Jameis Winston.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have reached an agreement with veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, the team announced Friday.
Fitzpatrick played in 14 games for the New York Jets last season, finishing with 2,710 passing yards and 12 touchdowns to 17 interceptions. He led the Jets to a 10-win campaign two years ago, then he held out before receiving a one-year, $10 million deal to return to NY. Quarterback Sean Renfree was waived to make room on the roster for Fitzpatrick.
The 34-year-old Fitzpatrick, who has started 116 games over his 12 seasons in the National Football League, will serve as the backup to starter Jameis Winston.Читайте также: US Summons Turkey Envoy Over DC Clashes During Erdogan Visit
Ryan Fitzpatrick came down to Earth in 2016 and lost 8 of the 11 games he started. Evans set career-highs in receptions (96) and receiving yards (1,321) while matching his best touchdown total (12) last season. The former No. 250 pick in the 2005 NFL Draft has played in 127 games and started in 116, throwing for 25,888 yards, 166 touchdowns and 133 interceptions.
Technically, Fitzpatrick became a free agent on February 10, when his contract automatically voided.
We shouldn't forget that the Buccaneers also added the explosive DeSean Jackson via free agency.
Fitzpatrick's season was defined by shaky stylings under center, and his six-interception performance in Week 3 against the Kansas City Chiefs represented a low point. They eventually agreed to a one-year deal, and Fitzpatrick proved it was in fact a flash in the pan year.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
