Jets fans celebrated like they won the Super Bowl last night when Ryan Fitzpatrick returned from his self imposed exiled. The Jets and Fitz ended their Cold War by agreeing to a one year, $12 million guaranteed contract after a bitter offseason of neither side willing to budge off of their initial proposals. Fitzpatrick wanted to be paid around $18 million, while the Jets wanted to spend no more than $9 million. It always seemed inevitable that Fitz would return to the Jets, as the two sides desperately needed each other. Fitz had absolutely zero other options, while the Jets were faced with the prospect of starting Geno Smith. So essentially, both sides had no other choice but to bite the bullet.
As Brandon Marshall was posting selfies with his quarterback, Geno was steaming and simmering. Remember, it wasn't all that long ago that the starting job was Geno's, until he lost it for both being bad at football and cracking a teammate in the jaw. After an offseason in which he's practiced as the starter up until now, Geno wasn't thrilled when Fitzpatrick all of a sudden showed up.
You are a horse Geno, remember that! If Mark Sanchez (the Sanchize!) can get a starting job somewhere, then we have no doubts that you'll be able to land a job somewhere else soon. How's Cleveland sound?
