As reported on Twitter, Ryan Talbot of Queen City Sports has been told that the Buffalo Bills have contacted Ryan Fitzpatrick’s agent to discuss restructuring his contract.
As it stands now, Fitzpatrick is in line to earn $4,250,000 in base salary for the team. His signing bonus gives him $2,000,000 and a miscellaneous bonus of $4,200,000. In all, Fitzpatrick’s cap hit for the 2013 season is $10,450,000.
Fitzpatrick has struggled mightily since signing an extension in 2011 for six years and $59 million. After starting the 2011 season with a 4-2 record, Fitzpatrick has gone 8-18 since.
While there is no word on what Fitzpatrick plans on doing in terms of restructuring, he may not have many other options available to him. Looking across the NFL landscape, Fitzpatrick wouldn’t have many opportunities to start besides Buffalo.
It’s almost a certainty that Buffalo will be drafting a rookie in the 2013 NFL Draft, but with the Bills, Fitzpatrick will most likely be given the chance to compete in training camp to be the starting signal caller for the Bills.
