A report on Wednesday indicated that Fitzpatrick would be willing to sign a one-year contract at around $12 million for 2016. According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets have no interest in a short-term deal.

In fact, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily news told PFT Live on Thursday that the team is closer to moving on than people think.
“I think it’s coming a lot sooner than some people might expect, and if you’re in the Jets’ position I think your patience should be wearing thin,” Mehta said. “The Jets are probably a bit closer to moving on than has been talked about at this point.”
