Ryan Fitzpatrick has finally agreed to a return to the New York Jets.
Fitzpatrick, the veteran quarterback who broke the team's single-season touchdown record and was 103 yards from taking down Joe Namath's single-season passing yards record hasn't budged from his resistance to taking a reported three-year, $24 million deal.
With Fitzpatrick under center, the Jets had a one-year turnaround from 4-12 to 10-6, narrowly missing the playoffs.
Veteran Carson Palmer believes Fitzpatrick gives the Jets a "legit shot," and judging by the last ditch effort to re-sign the quarterback, it would appear the Jets feel the same way.
With Tom Brady facing a four-game suspension, Fitzpatrick and the Jets could get an early advantage over the Patriots in the AFC East just one year after barely missing the postseason.
