The Buffalo Bills and quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick are closing in on a long-term contract extension, ESPN reported Thursday night. The report did not provide terms, other than to say it would be valued among "second-tier" quarterbacks. That would put the annual value between $9 million and $12 million. Fitzpatrick, 28, threw for career highs of 3,000 yards, 23 TDs and 15 interceptions, taking over the starting job early in the season. This season, he is a big reason the Bills are off to a surprising 4-2 start, throwing for 1,477 yards, 12 TDs and six picks. According to the report, the Bills would like to have the deal finalized before their Week 8 meeting with Washington.
