Ryan Fitzpatrick: 'I'm playing football next year'

Ryan Fitzpatrick plans to play in 2016--hopefully with the New York Jets.

The 33-year-old free agent quarterback told reporters Monday he "would like to be back" with Gang Green this year, and that "I'm playing ... I'm playing football next year."

Per ESPN New York:
Fitzpatrick, whose contract talks with the organization have been at an impasse for three months, said he didn't want to comment on what he called "negotiations." He made it clear, however, he has no plans to walk away, refuting a recent report that said he'd consider retirement if the Jets don't make him what he considers a fair offer.
The Jets reportedly initially offered Fitzpatrick an $8 million deal. They have since drafted Penn State quarterback Christian Hackenberg in the second round.
