Details of Ryan Fitzpatrick's contract with the Jets: Technically, it's a two-year contract with a voidable. Five days after the Super Bowl, it voids to one year. The two-year structure allows them to spread the signing bonus ($10M) over two years. His base salary is $2M, meaning his cap charge is $7M. There will be a $5M dead charge in 2017. (Per Adam Schefter).
