Mo Wilkerson's deal may lead to Jets re-signing QB Ryan Fitzpatrick

NY Post - [Full Article]

‪NFL salary cap expert ‬Joel Corry suggests Mo Wilkerson’s 2016 cap relief deal could free up cap room for a one-year deal with Ryan Fitzpatrick because the Jets had $3.425 million of space before the deal.

Offer Fitzpatrick one year for $12 million and the opportunity to bet on himself.

That part of the Jets’ three-year, $24 million offer was always a no-brainer for Fitzpatrick to sign if only because he has no other suitors.

Fantasy Impact: 

FitzMagic was the #11 fantasy quarterback last season. It was his first finish in the top 12, though he was the #13 QB in 2011, playing for then-HC (and current-OC) Chan Gailey in Buffalo. It’s clear that with these two, the sum of the parts is greater than the whole, and given the weapons would have at his disposal -- Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker and now Matt Forte -- Fitzpatrick will once again be a threat to finish with QB1 numbers, assuming he re-signs.
