Brandon Marshall appeared on the Rich Eisen show Friday to discuss the state of the New York Jets and their QB situation.
“That’s the toughest thing for me when I think about him potentially putting on another jersey. What we had and what we have is hard to create. It took us almost a year to do that — well, six months to do that. Most of the time, it takes guys a couple of years. We feel like we’re really close. We have a great defense. We have a consistent offense. We have great coaches. All we need to do now is continue to get more reps with the same guys.”
The Jets reportedly offered Fitzpatrick ‘backup money’. Something similar to what Chase Daniel was offered in Philadelphia at 7M per year.
Fitzpatrick’s play was well above Daniel as well as other QB’s that received deals this offseason, including Brock Osweiler and Sam Bradford.
Still, it seems the Jets are not sold on his abilities as a franchise quarterback.
