Veteran QB, Ryan Fitzpatrick, now 35, recently made a statement saying that he would like to continue with the Buccaneers as a back-up next year, as he enters free agency.
“At this point in my career, I’m not going to be given or gifted a chance to start anywhere probably,” Fitzpatrick said, via JoeBucsFan.com. “You know, there’s a lot of things that weigh into it now for me now that maybe didn’t years ago, just in terms of family and different situations. I enjoyed the year I’ve had here and even just the Tampa area in general. But this team, I think Jameis did a good job this year and you can see the improvement in his game. I’d enjoy being back. I really enjoyed my role this year, but you never know. We’ll see what happens.”
This year Fitzpatrick appeared in six games, threw for 1,103 yards, seven touchdowns, and three interceptions.
