So it's done: Ryan Fitzpatrick agrees to a one-year, $12M deal, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. The recent Mo Wilkerson contract created $5.7M in cap room, which made it possible to take a $12 M cap hit for Fitzpatrick. Still surprised, though. A while back, the Jets had no interest in a one-year deal. To me, Fitzpatrick wins.

Ryan Fitzpatrick re-signing with the Jets could well mean either Geno Smith or Bryce Petty will be looking for a new team by Week 1.

Sean Payton is stressing the need for Saints to get off to a better start this year – and stressing the need to increase competition all offseason long. Said it will even be important to win preseason games. Even said he felt like the group of players working on the park today did a better job than the group working on the house. Said you judge all of that, see who's got the sweatiest shirts.
