Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick Lobbying To Remain The Starter
New general managers like to hire their own head coaches, and new coaches usually go after their own quarterbacks.
After the Buffalo Bills fired coach Chan Gailey on Monday, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said he's not too keen on being a backup.
"For me personally, I think I want to play," he said, via the Buffalo News. "That's just who I am. I think I'm a starter in this league and want to play. I'd hate to play the 'what if' game right now, I guess."
Fitzpatrick signed a seven-year, $62.2 million contract last season, but the Harvard grad is viewed mostly as a system quarterback, or Gailey's personal project who didn't pan out. There is a good chance a new coach will want to move on and develop his own quarterback.
