While the journeyman tag is true, New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick can most certainly make the Pro Bowl in 2016.
If somebody lined up all four New York Jets quarterbacks and asked them to make every throw on the field, there’d be one guy who didn’t quite match-up with the rest.
It’s not rookie Christian Hackenberg, the man with the golden arm. It’s not Bryce Petty, who can sling it with the best of them. It’s not even Geno Smith, whose arm is as solid as an arm can come.
The man who’d lag behind the other three in terms of raw throwing talent would be Ryan Fitzpatrick.
It’s not even close, either.
