The Jets should call Ryan Fitzpatrick‘s bluff, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk opines. Some fear that Fitzpatrick could take a lesser offer from another team on principle, but Florio says that no one is going to offer the veteran anything of significance here in late May. While the Jets haven’t offered enough to entice Fitzpatrick to sign, he feels that they have accurately read the market for his services because no one else has even come close.
Here’s more from the AFC East:
- James Walker of ESPN.com wonders where Dion Jordan would fit in the Dolphins‘ defense. The defensive end will file for reinstatement on Wednesday and it sounds like he’s going to make a strong case to the league office. The Dolphins are open to Jordan returning, but Walker notes that the team approached free agency without the former No.3 overall pick in mind. Miami signed three veteran defensive ends this offseason in Mario Williams, Andre Branch, and Jason Jones, to go along with Cameron Wake. It’s possible then that Jordan could get a look at outside linebacker, which is not as deep of a group.
- The Dolphins have Ole Miss product Laremy Tunsil in the mix, but Branden Albert assured reporters today that he is “the left tackle of this team,” ESPN.com’s James Walker writes. Shortly after the draft, Miami assured Albert that he’ll remain at his current position while Tunsil will be worked in at guard. Albert will carry a $10.6MM cap number in 2016. In 2017, $6MM of his $8.245MM base salary is now guaranteed.
- On Tuesday morning, the Bills agreed to sign linebacker Jamari Lattimore.
