Charles Robinson of Yahoo.com sent out a tweet earlier today divulging further details on the contract negotiations between the New York Jets and free agent quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. The Jets’ current offer is reportedly for a total of $24 million over three seasons.
I was told #Jets offer to Ryan Fitzpatrick was 3-yrs $24 mil. $12 mil yr 1, avg of $6 mil per final 2. Starter $ yr 1, then elite backup $.

If correct, this answers the question many Jets fans have been asking in recent days, and that’s “what does the full deal look like” as previous reports only addressed the first season of the day.
The last remaining question is how much of the $24 million is guaranteed. If and when the sides come to terms, we’ll have our answer.
