NFL quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick apparently thinks he has a little bit of football left in him.
According to Ian Rapoport, the legendary NFL journeyman plans on hanging around and playing during the 2021 season. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
For whatever it’s worth: Former #Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, 38, does plan on playing in 2021, and he should have a solid FA market for his role. There’s been some public debate about his future, but he does intend to play this year.

In terms of short term fixes in the NFL at the quarterback position, there are very few options better than Fitzpatrick.

Where will he land? I have no idea, but there will be several teams looking for a veteran option at quarterback. New England, Chicago and Washington could all be options on the table.
No matter where he lands, it’s going to be fun to watch Fitzpatrick keep slinging it in the NFL!
