The deal is done. No, not Ryan Fitzpatrick. We're talking about Darron Lee. The Jets have agreed to terms with Lee, as Adam Schefter reported. It's a four-year, $10.2 million contract. They got it done in time for the former Ohio State star to participate in the first practice tomorrow. He was one of three unsigned first rounders.

The Jets are obviously trying to control the news on Day 1. Five players were made available to the media, and none of them were named Geno Smith, Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. Marshall and Decker have been Ryan Fitzpatrick's most outspoken supporters. Matt Forte said players were told to defer Fitzpatrick questions to Todd Bowles, who won't be available until tomorrow.

Jets LB David Harris, one of the most respected players on the team, clammed up on the Ryan Fitzpatrick situation.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Jets C Nick Mangold said he spoke to Ryan Fitzpatrick yesterday. He said they didn't talk football or contract. Mangold doesn't believe the Fitzpatrick distraction will be a distraction to the team.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

Matt Forte, Erin Henderson decline to discuss Ryan Fitzpatrick situation. Hmm, sounds like a company line sent down from above.
