Rumor has it that the QB-needy New York Jets are sniffing around Bengals QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Needless to say, Jets fans are just thrilled at the news.
For what it’s worth, horrified Gang Green backers, Fitzpatrick’s shaky performance in Cincinnati last season had more to do the team’s atrocious pass defense (51 sacks surrendered) and total lack of a running game (29th in the NFL) than anything else. Even Carson Palmer got destroyed, losing all four of his starts before an elbow injury shut him down for the year. Still, if the Jets are looking at him as anything but a backup, they’re barking up the wrong tree.
