The Jets’ top two receivers want their quarterback back.
Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall sent Ryan Fitzpatrick a video on the first day of the team’s offseason program Monday, showing him what they’re working on and telling him they want him to get a deal done with the team.
“I love Fitzpatrick,” Decker said, via the Wall Street Journal. “Would love to get to work with him if he is going to be the quarterback of this team.”
Fitzpatrick had a good season last year, so it’s no surprise that Decker and Marshall want him back again this year. But from all indications, the Jets and Fitzpatrick remain far apart in contract negotiations, and Fitzpatrick isn’t eager to sign for the kind of money the Jets are offering.
If Decker and Marshall have their hearts set on playing with Fitzpatrick, they may be disappointed.
