How is Fitzy still a free agent?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

He's 39 & coming off a very major injury. Teams aren't exactly lining up for that.

 

I'm not sure if he'd even be able to play again, let alone want to. If he does, he'll probably be a mid-season signing to a team with an injury at QB.

What's your take?  Where does he land?

 

 

I would guess either 1) he doesn’t intend to play or is still injured and isn’t ready to play or 2) He’s willing to play, but not at less than say $10M a year for any team that might try to pull the “back-up with a chance to start” crap.  I wouldn’t take back-up money when I know damn well I’m going to end up being the starter.  
 

If he was ready to play and do so at a reasonable price, I believe he would have been a Bill, but I don’t think he was going to accept what Keenum did.

There's a tradition in pro wrestling where the biggest stars—at the end of their career—go out on their back. I know this isn't pro wrestling, but Fitzmagic is about the closest thing the NFL has had to a pro wrestler... well, aside from that time Brock Lesner was kind of in the NFL. Anyway, Fitz should end his career on his back, preferably after being body slammed through a table.

The rumor after the injury was that he hurt himself at a waterpark with his kids over last summer and then the hit in the game just wrecked it. And he didn't tell the team about the original injury.  Again, rumors.

He is a backup who will keep your team out of the playoffs and also won't get them a very high draft pick.

He is broken, that and he is old, and he doesn’t give the impression that he is a Tommy boy peds sort of guy,

This would be my guess unless he's leaning toward retirement and has already communicated that to any prospective suitors.
