Never Named The Starter
Immediately, after the 2015 season ended, Mike Maccagnan was asked about free agent quarterback to be Ryan Fitzpatrick.
He was asked about the 33-year old’s future with the New York Jets.
Maccagnan proceeded to tell the media that Fitzpatrick is the Jets starter heading into the offseason of 2016.
Moreover, as Daryl Slater of NJ.com eludes to, Mikey Mac decided not to extend Fitzpatrick during the season or prior to the season once he took the reigns on the starting job. It was a gamble by both sides. A gamble in which the Harvard grad won.
Not once have the Jets named Geno Smith the starting quarterback. This is the case despite the abundance of posturing on both sides up to this point.
