Judy sums up Fitz situation perfectly Dan Leberfeld

NFL.com scribe Judy Battista, a former Jets beat writer for the New York Times, summed up the Jets-Ryan Fitzpatrick contract dispute perfectly in the final paragraph of her most recent column.

“Jets management is engaged in a delicate balancing act — managing a win-now roster while simultaneously beginning the transition to the future,” wrote Battista. “Fitzpatrick won’t be a part of that future. But the Jets won’t be a part of winning now without him.”

That summation encapsulates this contract battle with aplomb.
