Undrafted free agent P Ben LeCompteannounced that he has signed a contract with the Bears.
Rich Cimini of ESPN believes the Jets’ patience in re-signing veteran QB Ryan Fitzpatrick could end up backfiring on them, since they are limiting their options at quarterback.
Cimini says that Geno Smith could be assured as the Week 1 starter by the beginning of organized team activities on May 24, given that it would be improbable for a player to join the team and learn the offense in a brief amount of time.
Furthermore, Cimini points out that if the Jets wait until July or August to trade for a quarterback, they could put themselves in a bad negotiating position and could end up overpaying in a deal.
