Bills Contact Fitzpatrick’s Agent

By PFC Bills Blogger Chris Brown

Per source, The Buffalo Bills have contacted Ryan Fitzpatrick’s agent to try to restructure his current deal with the team.  Fitzpatrick is set to earn a roster bonus of $3 million dollars in March.  If the Bills were to cut him before that time it would they would take a cap hit of $10 million dollars. Fitzpatrick’s base salaries going forward are $4.25 million in 2013, $4.35 million in 2014, $7.2 million in 2015, $8.75 million in 2016 and $9.45 million in 2017.  This current deal only makes his the 19th highest paid quarterback.  This contact comes to no surprise being that the Bills have been looking to draft their future franchise quarterback.  This is a smart choice by the Bills to try to keep him on the roster to help develop and teach the new quarterback.  Who knows maybe this will spark and raise Fitzpatrick’s level of play.
