Ryan Fitzpatrick News
Free-agent quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is retiring from the National Football League on Thursday. Fitzpatrick injured his hip in the season opener for the Washington Commanders in 2021, missed the rest of the year and required surgery in December. The man they called Fitzmagic and the Amish Rifle will end his incredible NFL career having played 17 seasons with nine different teams. The journeyman gunslinger spent four years with the Buffalo Bills from 2009-12, throwing a combined 71 touchdowns and 54 interceptions with the team in a three-year span from 2010-12. The 39-year-old was originally a seventh-round selection by the Rams in 2005 out of Harvard. Fitzpatrick also played for the Bengals, Titans, Texans, Jets, Buccaneers and Dolphins.
Washington Commanders impending free-agent quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick makes a lot of sense to be Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen's backup in 2022. Mitchell Trubisky, who was Allen's backup last year, will move on in free agency and could land a big deal at the top of a weak free-agent class. Fitzpatrick was previously with the Bills and was Washington's starter heading into 2021 before suffering a season-ending injury in Week 1. Other low-cost backup options for Buffalo at QB could be Andy Dalton, Teddy Bridgewater and Tyrod Taylor. It's unknown if Fitzpatrick wants to continue his playing career, but his personality, gun-slinging mentality and locker-room dynamic seems to be the best fit alongside Allen.
Washington Football Team quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his hip, officially ending his 2021 season. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the surgery is a measure that will help him heal. The 38-year-old suffered a hip subluxation in the Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers and appeared in only one game in 2021. He finishes the season with 13 yards passing on six attempts. Fitzpatrick is on an expiring deal with Washington, and it's unclear where the veteran will land in 2022. Taylor Heinicke will continue to be Washington's starting quarterback and has been a solid fantasy asset this season. The 28-year-old has thrown for 2,809 yards and an 18:11 TD: INT ratio while rushing for 289 yards and a score over 12 games. Heinicke can be used as a streamer against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 14.
