Jets

Jets owner Woody Johnson said that there has been “no real change” in regards to a new contract for free agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.

“I can’t comment on exactly what we’re talking about, or even if we’re talking,” Johnson said, via NJ.com. “But no, no real change. … You want to have everything as much resolved as you can, as quickly as possible. But not everything works out on the time schedule of what you’d like. Some things just take a little bit longer, and that’s part of the deal. So here we are. I don’t think it’s disconcerting or concerting. It’s just part of the negotiating process.”
