Ryan Fitzpatrick could be rewarded soon for his solid run as Bills starting quarterback.
WGR Sports Radio 550 in Buffalo reports that Fitzpatrick and the Bills have talked about a contract extension recently. A deal is not believed to be imminent.
“I’m focused on playing, that’s all I can focus on right now,” Fitzpatrick told Joe Buscaglia. “Whether it comes or not, that’s for the team and my agent to deal with. For me, all my focus and efforts are going in to beating the Raiders.”
The Harvard product will earn $3.195 million on the final year of his contract in 2011. Since Chan Gailey arrived in Buffalo, Fitzpatrick has a 27:15 TD: INT ratio. He’s coming off a four-touchdown game against the Chiefs.
There is no young quarterback being groomed in Buffalo, so getting Fitzpatrick locked up seems like a wise move.
Incidentally, who says the Bills don’t get any attention? This was our third Bills-related post of the morning.
Just imagine if they get to 2-0.
