Football Insiders Best of The Week


Although we’d like you to read each and every one of the stories that we post, we understand that sometimes life gets in the way. With that in mind, here’s an easy way to catch up with some of our best of the week.

Jets and Fitzpatrick In A Stalemate

The New York Jets are playing chicken with the starting quarterback who helped lead them to 10 wins a year ago.  Ryan Fitzpatrick has virtually no market as a starter and won’t be able to make any more than the Jets are offering him.  Which side blinks first and is each side prepared to walk away?
