Former Bills quarterback, and all-time fan favorite, Ryan Fitzpatrick, might call it a career soon… or will he?

According to John Clayton via Dolphins Wire, Fitzpatrick, one of Miami’s pending free agents, could be retiring soon:

“Ryan Fitzpatrick looks like he’s going to retire. The Broncos did make some contact with him. He’s been with eight teams and played a long time. But it looks like he’s going to be out of the mix.” – John Clayton, 104.3 The Fan

While that report surfaced last weekend, another via NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport rebutted that:

Fitzpatrick, 38, hasn’t played with the Bills since 2012, but always has folks rooting for him in western New York. Fitzpatrick always found a way to get a pass from Bills Mafia despite having played on other AFC East teams since leaving the Bills.

The QB often touts Buffalo as the favorite place he’s played in his extensive career which has spanned eight different franchises. That helps.

Fitz has yet to officially retire just yet, so maybe he will change his mind as Rap Sheet suggests. In 2020, he did have a 4-3 overall record with the Dolphins and put together some impressive performances. He was benched despite being a big part in the Dolphins’ postseason push, so one could figure that there would be interest in him.

Fitzpatrick’s season ended on the COVID-19 list, though. He had the designation placed on him and did not play in Miami’s season finale vs. the Bills. That loss without him kept the Dolphins out of the postseason.
