Fitz hoping to get another shot with Gang Green

Things presently aren't looking too great for New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The soon-to-be free agent threw more interceptions in the last 10 minutes of Sunday's loss to the Bills (three) than he had in his previous five games, one of which came inside the red zone when the Jets were only down by a field goal.

But despite the crux of fan frustration being directed at the 33-year-old and his role in the team falling short of a playoff spot for the fifth consecutive year, the veteran signal-caller remains optimistic about his future in New York.

"I don't want to live with hypotheticals, but I had a lot of fun this year," Fitz said Monday via Rich Cimini of "It's the most fun I've ever had in a season, with the guys in this locker room and the run we had in December. Hopefully, I can be back and can continue to build on that.

"This is obviously a place I want to be, a place I'm comfortable with, but we'll see how everything goes."
