Analysis: Though unable to obtain a desired long-term deal, Fitzpatrick returns to an offense that enabled him to throw for a career-high 3,905 yards and a team-record 31 touchdowns last season. His return is good news for the Jets, who improved from 4-12 to 10-6 with Fitzpatrick under center, and for the fantasy outlooks of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.

Analysis: That offer has remained on the table for Fitzpatrick, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither side is commenting publicly on the negotiations. Fitzpatrick and the Jets have been locked in a contract stalemate. The 33-year-old quarterback is a free agent and coming off a season in which he threw a Jets-record 31 touchdown passes and led New York within a victory of the playoffs.

Analysis: Speaking at former teammate Willie Colon's charity golf tournament, Fitzpatrick refuted previous reports that he would rather walk away from the game than accept a perceived below-market offer from the Jets. The 33-year-old free agent and the Jets have been at an impasse in negotiations throughout the offseason.

Analysis: Johnson spoke Monday at the NFL owners' meetings when asked about the team's negotiations with Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick comes off the best season of his 11-year career, one in which he led the Jets to a 10-6 record even though he was brought in last offseason to back up Geno Smith. Fitzpatrick got the starting job in training camp when Smith's jaw was broken by a teammate's punch, and he performed so well that he nearly got New York back into the playoffs.

Analysis: Both sides have said they would like a reunion, but it appears it will have to be at the right price. After a season in which he set the Jets' franchise record with 31 touchdown passes, Fitzpatrick was expected to draw interest from a handful of teams. But the veteran quarterback could be waiting things out to see how other teams' situations play out.
