The Buccaneers made the choice to sit down down quarterback Jameis Winston for a few weeks in hopes that his proper shoulder will heal and which means Ryan Fitzpatrick will get the beginning this Sunday.
As luck would have it, Fitzpatrick might be going through the workforce he performed for in 2015 and 2016. The Jets might be in Tampa, which Fitzpatrick finds “very ironic” and an encapsulation of a profession that he describes as a “never-ending rollercoaster.”
His two years with the Jets match that definition. He took over because the starter after Geno Smith‘s jaw was damaged by then-teammate IK Enemkpali with a punch, led the Jets to the brink of the playoffs earlier than flopping with a postseason berth on the road after which getting benched throughout a rancid 2016 season.
“I’ve actually good reminiscences,” Fitzpatrick informed Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “Obviously it was a tale of two years. My first year there we surprised a lot of people… In terms of the experiences I had and the experiences my family had living there and the people we met in that organization, I’ve got nothing but great things to say about them.”
Fitzpatrick’s historical past with the Jets offense received’t badist the Bucs a lot on the preparation entrance as John Morton took over as offensive coordinator after Fitzpatrick left. With large receiver Mike Evans suspended, they’ll possible have sufficient to give attention to when it comes to getting their very own offense able to go anyway.
