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.
